Dogs Are Smarter Than People: Writing Life, Marriage and Motivation

Books, Law School during Covid-19 and just being Kick Butt - Using Law to Create Lasting Change - Interview with Caitlyn Vanover

Hey! Welcome to a bonus interview episode of Dogs are Smarter Than People, the usually quirky podcast that gives writing tips and life tips.

I’m Carrie Jones and with me today is Caitlyn Vanover. Caitlyn is an awesome human out there making a difference in the world, She is in law school in Illinois, class of 2022, and she has an Instagram devoted to books, which is a straight shot to this writer’s heart.

She's not just a book lover. She's a first-generation law student.

It was through The WILLOW Project that I knew I was going to: help those who couldn't help themselves; be a voice for the voiceless; and "help those that have fallen through societies cracks."

My new book, IN THE WOODS, is out!

Gasp!

It’s with Steve Wedel. It’s scary and one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Buzz Books for Summer 2019. There’s an excerpt of it there and everything! But even cooler (for me) they’ve deemed it buzz worthy! Buzz worthy seems like an awesome thing to be deemed!
