Daniela Petrova Interview Part I

Oct 12, 2019 | Conversations, Events | 0 comments

On September 7th, hosted by Columbia University’s Fiction Foundry, I had the pleasure of interviewing Daniela Petrova, author of the debut novel, HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER. Daniela and I enjoyed a wide-ranging conversation about the novel and what it takes to get a book published by Putnam, a major publishing house.

HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER has been named “One of Five Thrillers to Read This Summer” by Time Magazine, and “One of summer’s most buzzed-about debuts” by CrimeReads. A twist-filled domestic suspense, the novel explores the emotional and ethical complexities of having a baby through an egg donor cycle. The story is told through the point-of-view of the mother, the father, and Katya, the vivacious, enigmatic egg donor, as it raises provocative questions about this important and timely topic.  

Daniela was generous and fun to interview as she shared tips and advice from her journey to publication. The first clip of the video has just been posted to YouTube. The rest will be unrolled over the next few weeks. To see the first installment of my interview with Daniela Petrova, click here.
