Episode 1: Mindy McGinnis on her book “Heroine”

Rachel Claire Hopkin talks with Ohio author Mindy McGinnis about her new book, "Heroine."

In this episode of Ohio Humanities’ Real Issues: Real Conversations podcast, Ohio author Mindy McGinnis talks about her latest YA novel Heroine(Harper Collins, 2019).
 
Mindy McGinnis is an Ohio-born-and-bred ninth generation farmer and an award-winning author of YA fiction. Mindy’s latest book, Heroine, has been described as “captivating and powerful exploration of the opioid crisis—the deadliest drug epidemic in American history—through the eyes of a college-bound softball star” and a “visceral and necessary novel about addiction, family, friendship, and hope.”    
 
Beside authoring YA fiction, Mindy also blogs and podcasts about writers and the writing process under the title of  Writer, Writer Pants On Fire.  
 
Mindy McGinnis is interviewed by folklorist/radio producer Rachel Hopkin
