Today I’m chatting with Olivia Waite about everything. We talk about being romance nerds, lost historical details, the hidden arts of embroidery and sewing, textile porn romances, and making a home. We squee about tv shows we love, books we adore, and we talk about what she’s working on now, both in her column at Seattle Review of Books and in her romance fiction.
Do we take a side trip to Finnish declensions? Sure, why not?
