Married Authors On Writing, Inspiration And Not Making A Lot Of Money

The StoryCorps mobile booth was in Austin last month, and we’re bringing you some of the stories that were recorded there. Locally recorded stories will air Monday and Wednesday mornings during Morning Edition and archived here.

Timothy Hobbs and his wife Donna Walker-Nixon shared a conversation in the mobile booth while it was in Austin. They’re both authors, but they typically don’t read each other’s work. While in the StoryCorps booth, they took the opportunity to talk a bit about their writing habits.  

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit with a mission to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives. 

Thank you to our sponsors of StoryCorps' visit to Austin: Cap Metro and We Are Blood

Mike is a features producer at KUT, where he’s been working since his days as an English major at the University of Texas. He produces Arts Eclectic, Get Involved, and the Sonic ID project, and also produces videos and cartoons for KUT.org. When pressed to do so, he’ll write short paragraphs about himself in the third person, but usually prefers not to.
