In this episode, I conclude my conversation with Mary Lane Potter. Mary is a novelist, writer, and teacher. She’s published numerous works including novels, short stories, and creative nonfiction essays. Her first novel, A Woman of Salt, was selected as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection in 2001. Before writing fiction, Mary received a Ph.D. in Christian theology from the University of Chicago Divinity School. When she converted to Judaism in 1991, she left her tenured position, earned an M.F.A. in creative writing, and began publishing fiction. Mary recently completed a book-length spiritual autobiography entitled Seeking God and Losing the Way: A Story of Love and Conversions.

Together we explore her conversion to Judaism, writing fiction, and authors and thinkers that inspire Mary.
