Nathan Dueck, author of A Very Special Episode, talks to me about the challenges of being a parent and a writer. This is part 1 of a two-part episode.
nathan dueck’s middle name is russel, which means his initials spell nrd. His folks tell him that nobody used that word when he was born, but dictionaries say otherwise. He is the author of King’s(mere) (Turnstone Press) and he’ll (Pedlar Press). Born in Winnipeg, he completed his Ph.D. at the University of Calgary and now lives in Cranbrook, BC, where he is a creative writing and English instructor at the College of the Rockies.
We discuss the following books, which I highly recommend, in the course of the two-part interview:
- Michael Hyatt’s Free to Focus
- James Clear’s Atomic Habits
- Tim Grahl’s Running Down a Dream
- Marvin Francis’s City Treaty
- and the art of Marcel Dzama
