Today, I’m joined by the phenomenal author May Cobb, who’s got a new book out right now called ‘The Hunting Wives.’ I’m about a third of the way through it, and it is one of those ones that you struggle to put down.

It’s based in East Texas and it is her first book to go global and become such a widespread release.

We discussed the book, writing novels vs. writing for TV, the difficulties of writing as your full-time career, what’s next for May, and of course, Texas.  

“It was my last roll of the dice, this had to happen.” – May Cobb
