Q: We’re here today with Ashton Daigle, author of The Long Hunt, for a little Q&A. How are you today? Thanks for being here. It’s good to see you again.
AD: It’s good to be seen. Thanks for having me
Q: Well for those of us who are unfamiliar with your work give us a little background.
AD: I began writing professionally in 1998 for newspapers. I was still in college when I got my first reporter job. I did that for over ten years.
Q: Do you still?
AD: No. Barring the occasional freelance article, I seldom write newspapers or magazines. I shifted away from journalism a few years after Hurricane Katrina.
AD: Yeah, to a degree there was some of that. It also just became harder and harder to make earn a decent living on reporter wages.
