I am so honored to have Ivy Owns as a guest in this episode. I read her book months ago and immediately started shouting about it to anyone who would listen. Getting to hear from Ivy about the joy she found in writing Scandalized in the peak of the pandemic was such a joy for me. Ivy has years of writing experience and you can tell that I was a little too excited to talk to her. At the end, we do chat about her recent experience with writing under a pen name and how that's impacted her as Scandalized gained attention. It was truly a delight to get to spend this time with her and I hope you love her as much as I do!
