Join author Benjamin Roesch and myself for our new podcast - a deep discursive dive into the world of all things books, publishing, and writing. No bells and whistles, just authentic chats with interesting, passionate people who love books and writing as much as we do.
Each episode, Benjamin and I invite on a different guest from within the bookish community - ranging from award-winning authors to hit Bookstagrammers - in order to gain meaningful and light-hearted insights into the many worlds of the written word.
All our brilliant guests bring their own experiences, thoughts, sense of humour, advice, curiosity, and... Perspectives on Pages.
It's honestly been such fun making these episodes - we hope you enjoy listening to them too.
