Book Banter S3 EP 113: Boo Trundle Interview

Updated: May 13

Hello My Happy People,

Today I am sharing with you the amazing interview I had with author Boo Trundle. We had a very deep discussion about the introspective process behind writing books, fiction or nonfiction, that the author puts so much of themselves into the work and how it can affect not only the author but those around them.

It has been said that there are no more original stories, only retellings. Boo not only defies that notion with her book, The Daughter Ship, but completely blows it out of the water.  Her story of a wife and mother struggling with mental illness gives an incredibly unique take on the way people cope with inner demons.

While it is often common practice for writers to describe characters such as Boo Trundle’s Katherine as using different methods to suppress disturbing thoughts and emotions, readers would be hard pressed to find another work where they were quite literally trapped in a submerged submarine.

While The Daughter Ship is Boo’s first published novel, with her creative past, it is easy to understand how she would have the skills and experience to craft such an imaginative and engaging book. Boo is not only a writer and an author but she is also an artist and a performer. Don't wait ... go listen to her interview now and hear all the details from the author herself.
