We’re delighted to have contemporary fantasy author K.M. (aka Kessie) Carroll on our show this week! After we discuss the heat in Arizona (where Kessie lives), and Aaron gives Liberty a really hard time, we actually get down to the business of the day.

- The origins of her series
- Sacrificial cars
- Superstition Mountains (super creepy stories!)

- Classic Batman show from the 1960s…and her kids’ likely reaction to watching the show. (Hilarity ensues.)
- Kessie’s Doctor (Who)
- Writing with 5 kids (great advice for ALL of us parents.)
- Scrivener for iOS (Which should be out by the time you can hear this! Yay!)
