179: Inspirational Indie Author Interview #32: Robert Dinsmoor Found Cure for Addiction In Writing and Rehab
My guest this week is Robert Dinsmoor, a writer who has seen his share of sadness and addiction, yet is able to find ways to write about them with both wisdom and wit.
Robert talks about his journey as a comedy writer whose alcoholism landed him in rehab, where he was able to not only find healing, but also inspiration for his writing.
Every week I interview a member of ALLi to talk about their writing and what inspires them, and why they are inspiring to other authors.
