We speak with Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip, who together comprise the writing team of Michael Stanley, about their new novel Dying to Live, #6 in the Detective Kubu series. It has already received praise from Publishers Weekly and Kirkus as the best one yet. They won the Barry Award and were finalists for an Edgar for Death of the Mantis, and were finalists for an International Thriller Award for Deadly Harvest.
We also talk with Elizabeth Tannen and Michael Kleber-Diggs about the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop, which offers creative writing workshops in prisons throughout the state. Elizabeth Tannen is a multi-genre writer, editor and teacher whose work has appeared in many publications, including Slate, NPR, The Rumpus and The Morning News. Michael Kleber-Diggs is an essayist and poet living in St. Paul who has been involved in the Loft’s mentor series in poetry and creative prose.
