How It Works
My objective, before I visit a city, is to have booked interviews with individuals who have either requested to meet with me or via other means. What does this mean for the interviewee?
Following a face-to-face, audio recorded interview, I will write a brief summary about the interviewee's life. Remote interviewing via ZOOM is also possible. The interviewee will have veto authority before the summary will be posted to the website under STORIES. A first name, or pseudonym, will be used along with sex, age, and state/province. In short, highly anonymous unless otherwise chosen by the interviewee.
For the book, I will reproduce the interviewee's story narrative but with additional "color commentary."
At the end of the day, while the literary content will be mine, the interviewee will have control over whether the content will be published.
