A LOOK-BACK: 10 YEARS OF DIALOGUE: BETWEEN THE LINES
Susan Wingate started Dialogue: Between the Lines in 2010 when it was uncool to have a podcast. Who knew that she’d be leading the wave of book-related podcasts when she saw a need for fiction marketing platforms. At first, the early years also featured her friend and co-host, Joshua Graham. Since then, she’s hosted celebrity authors and emerging authors alike. As an author herself, Susan explores key aspects of writing in a professional, conversational and sometimes humorous manner.

If you are an author, agent, publicist, or publisher, Susan would be happy to have you on Dialogue.
Some past guests include: Scott Turow, David Morrell, Debbie Macomber, Randall Silvis, Elizabeth George, James Rollins, JA Jance, Garth Stein, Steve Berry, and The Amazing Kreskin, to name only a few.
