We decided to showcase this wonderful interview with Susan Klein, the author and artist of The Gnome and Mrs. Meyers, and Randy Chertkow, the producer and musician on the project. This book leaves no creative medium untouched. From free memberships in the Gnome Nation to a touching, laugh-out-loud story, to original art and original music by one of podcasting’s most well known musicians.

Susan Klein is a Chicago-based author and freelance writer. She has had numerous essays published in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, and Funny Times, a national humor review. She is also a fine artist whose paintings have been exhibited in galleries in Chicago and the Midwest.
When Mrs. Meyers, an impoverished widow, wins the “Expect the Unexpected Sweepstakes” she thinks everything in her life will turn around. But the prize of precious jewels comes with an unexpected catch: she must keep an ancient magical being safe, secure, and entertained for three months at her condo. Is she up to the challenge of this unique homestay program? Will she be able to deal with her abusive boss, and a condo association that is certain there’s vermin running around the building? And, most importantly, what will a gnome think of Chicago deep-dish pizza? Listen to the free podiobook The Gnome and Mrs. Meyers at GnomeHomstay.com to find out!
