A Conversation About Writing and Literary Fiction

J.S.Watts has been interviewed by the author Jay Lemming about writing in general and literary fiction in particular.

It was a thought provoking interview and Jay Lemming claims that "J.S. Watts has put me in my place…in the best way possible!"

The interview is part on an ongoing series of interviews with indie authors on the topic of literary fiction. There are lots of deliciously different opinions, in turns out.
