Jeff & Will welcome married couple and collaborators Anna-Marie and Elliott McLemore for a conversation that was recorded live at Sacramento's Capital Books for the launch of the YA fantasy "Venom & Vow." They discuss how the book went from something Anna-Marie was working on solo to a co-writing project, and they share great stories about all aspects of their creative process. We also get to hear their first ever joint reading, and Jeff slips in a question about Anna-Marie's Great Gatsby remix from last year, "Self-Made Boys."

Jeff & Will welcome debut author Ari Baran to talk about their enemies-to-lovers, age gap, hockey romance "Game Misconduct." Ari discusses how the story evolved as they worked on it, why they created a co-ed pro hockey league, and the story they wanted to tell with the characters of Mike and Danny. Ari shares their deep love of hockey, and how that has lead them to take such a deep dive on learning about the sport. Ari also has some book recs, and a few details about their next book.
