E.K.M. by Oomphotography
The online site for Mosaic Magazine is featuring a new interview with Edward Kelsey Moore discussing his debut novel, The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. Some of the topics covered: Are any of your characters drawn from, or inspired by, women in your life? What was it like for you, a man, to get inside the mindset of women? How did you come to choose former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt to play a role in your book? Did you have a particular reader in mind when you were writing?

Launched in 1998, Mosaic explores the literary arts by writers of African descent, featuring a unique blend of artist profiles and book reviews, plus literature lesson plans for educators. Mosaic is produced by the Literary Freedom Project, a nonprofit arts organization that supports the literary arts through education, creative thinking, and new media.
Back in the spring, E.K.M. was interviewed by host T. Hetzel for the Living Writers Show, on radio station WCBN in Ann Arbor, MI. This is a long, cheerful interview and includes discussion of libraries, inspirations for writing, and a short reading by Edward from The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. Here is the webpage where you can find the interview. There is no description -- you want the episode labeled 2013-04-24. It is set up to work best with the iTunes player, but you can listen to the interview directly from the page: scroll your cursor down the list of episodes and hover over Living Writers 2013-04-24, a small, blue "play" arrow should appear on the left. Be aware -- the interview lasts for an hour and if you use the preview player (rather than listening via iTunes) you can't stop/pause or you'll have to start all over again from the beginning. The show includes a minute or two of promos for the radio station before the interview begins. WCBN is the University of Michigan student-run, community, freeform radio station in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
