‘I Confess’ to Being Obsessed With Dave Wakeling’s Music

And how I’m channeling that into kidlit.

Podcast Episode #9

My name is Naomi Shibles and I’m here to tell you Why I Need This Author Gig.

With each episode, I’ll share a little bit about my writing journey, sprinkled with some anecdotes so that we can share a laugh.

In this episode, I cover:

  • Next steps to my authoring empire

  • The seeds of musical obsession

  • The Legendary King of Ska

  • Flaky friends and pay phones

UPDATE: The name of the hotel that I reference in this episode is, indeed, The Catamaran Resort on Mission Bay in San Diego, California. I couldn’t find anything about live music still being performed there, but they do still have the champagne brunch! 🥂
