This week on the XOXO After Darkcast we welcome friend of the podcast Kristin Harmel! Her new book, THE ROOM ON RUE AMELIE, is just about to publish, so we asked her about why WWII is such a fascinating period for fiction writers, how she got her start, and who was the real-life inspiration for her heroine, Ruby. Plus, we play a game of Shag/Marry/Kill featuring classic movie actors who served in the war–there are some seriously tough choices to be made!

No matter what period you’re in, the important thing to remember is that the best conversations…happen after dark.
