In this conversation, Kimmery shares her journey from ER doctor to novelist. Specifically, we discuss Doctors and Friends, but what really intrigued me about our conversation is Kimmery’s advice for aspiring writers. As a lifelong creative writer, I’m always curious about the process of becoming a published writer. I mean really published – by a big publishing house – not an online blog. I do the latter every week.
