Caroline Dowd-Higgins, Global Career Expert and author of This is Not the Career I Ordered, interviewed Don Tassone last week and put the results online as a 17-minute podcast. Her major questions: How does a high-powered workaholic executive like Don Tassone move from the corporate life to the life of a creative writer? And how much of that move informs Drive? Here's a bit of Tassone's answer: "I took some time to decompress. I wrote a couple of stories and showed them to friends, and . . . they weren't very good. I'd spent so many years writing memos, being brief, that I needed training to remember what I'd loved, to be creative, to expand." It's well worth the 17-minute listen. And Drive, Tassone's new novel about a high-powered workaholic executive, is well worth a read.
