I never imagined myself as a podcaster. Of course, I never imagined myself as an author, either - until the day I sat down to write a book. Anyway, last August, while trying to come up with a new way to promote authors, I thought "Podcast!"; and Word Play with Kristine Raymond was born.

To be honest, it wasn't quite that simple, but with a bit of research and a lot of perseverance (and cursing), Word Play launched on October 31, 2018.

So what can you expect to hear when you tune in to an episode? Just about anything! The format is casual - no hard-hitting interview questions - and while my guests and I discuss books (of course); Star Wars, Star Trek, crocheting, alcoholic beverages, tea, and gardening have all been topics of conversation on the show. I've chatted with New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors as well as those who are just starting out, and each expresses their own unique personality.

I hope you enjoy getting to know more about your favorite authors and maybe you'll discover a few new ones.
