Married Authors On Writing, Inspiration And Not Making A Lot Of Money

Feb 28, 2018

Donna Walker-Nixon and Timothy Hobbs

The StoryCorps mobile booth was in Austin last month, and we’re bringing you some of the stories that were recorded there. Locally recorded stories will air Monday and Wednesday mornings during Morning Edition and archived here.

Timothy Hobbs and his wife Donna Walker-Nixon shared a conversation in the mobile booth while it was in Austin. They’re both authors, but they typically don’t read each other’s work. While in the StoryCorps booth, they took the opportunity to talk a bit about their writing habits.  

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit with a mission to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives. 

Thank you to our sponsors of StoryCorps' visit to Austin: Cap Metro and We Are Blood
