Porchlight: Episode Two with Greg Neri

TNwebThe Porchlight: Craft & Creativity Conversations welcomes author G. Neri (Greg to his friends and family.) Join us as we talk about mining stories from real life headlines, following the happy accidents, becoming an accidental author, the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and the research behind Tru & Nelle. Harper Lee and Truman Capote enthusiasts will have much to grin about as Greg shares about Tru and Nelle’s love of Sherlock Holmes and how their childhood reading influenced their lives. And if you listen close, Greg even reveals a “dark” secret—never shared before.


As an added bonus, author and filmmaker  e.E. Charlton-Trujillo filmed Greg on his visit to Monroeville, Alabama—hometown of Nelle Harper Lee and Truman Capote, which is referenced in the podcast. Enjoy the film they made of his time in the birthplace of these two literary greats here.
