Who says you can't write from a woman's perspective if you're a man? Or from a man's perspective as a woman? Writing is about understanding people, and not just people who look and sound and live like you.
Today's conversation is about just this: writing from a perspective that is different from your own, whether that means gender, race, or ethnicity. Join me in conversation with John DeDakis, author of the Lark Chadwick mystery series. John is a former White House correspondent and former senior editor for "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer". He has had an illustrious career as a journalist and he took that experience and applied it to the Lark Chadwick series.
So how did John tackle writing from the point of view of a 22 year old woman? Take a listen!
