Building a house and creating a character--and turning a house into a character with speculative fiction is Ian Kirkpatrick's specialty. Join host Alison Nissen as she uncovers Ian's simple plotting techniques, creative website name, and desire to build a community of writers. 

Ian Kirkpatrick is a speculative and satirical author with interesting credentials: an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa and a BA in Theater from the University of Alaska Anchorage. She's lived in a high desert, the frozen tundra, and the subtropics, so, she's got most extreme climates covered. The things she writes can be as dramatically different as the places she's lived, though she tends toward black comedy, satire, and different forms of speculative fiction. She's written novels, short stories, stage plays, and screenplays. She's fairly obsessed with the good and evil in humans, contrast, and the absurdity that is people.
