Episode 20-Nancy Richardson Fischer

Today on the podcast I have author Nancy Richardson Fischer speaking about her debut YA novel ‘When Elephants Fly.’ On today’s episode in addition to her new book we talk about her time working for the Circus, working for LucasArts and how she went about researching Schizophrenia for her new book. We also discuss animals in captivity and what can be done to best care for animals outside of the wild. She also teases her next book. Her new novel is one of my favorites of 2018. She writes about the subjects of mental illness and animals in captivity in a subtle and thoughtful way. And yes, it is a story of a girl and an elephant, but it is never sentimental or manipulative. It was a joy to talk with her and I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did the conversation.
