In a fun, wide-ranging conversation with Don, Taffy discusses the privilege and challenges of the freelance writer’s life; the traits of great and bad editors; the challenges of writing stories to length. Don also reads a few of his favorite Taffy ledes. And there’s a “lightning round” of questions submitted by a mystery past editor of Taffy’s.
