Episode 104 - Knitting with Rachael

In this episode, we welcome Rachael Herron, author of the Cypress Hollow series, several mainstream fiction books including the soon-to-be-released "The Ones Who Matter Most" and a non-fiction collection of memoirs. Rachael and I met years ago when we were both involved in the knit-bloggers ring, and recently reconnected at a local guild meeting. On the morning we were recording it was unusually windy and we had even had some rain. You've heard Gayle and I talk about the California drought, so yay, rain! But the wind? Not so much. Our internet conferencing software kept dropping our conference call. We don't really know what caused it to be dropped, but we vented our frustration on the wind. So our apologies for the few places were the chat is choppy and for the general lower than usual audio quality. That was a surprise and we hope you will stick with us and listen to our chat with Rachael. Thank-you Rachael for being patient and working with us that morning!
