Steve Cook is a writer and a teacher. He joins me to discuss his approach to writing “Belina,” a kick-ass robot story, with which he won first place in Amygdala Magazine’s Short Story Competition last year.

Steve is an accomplished author and shares insights about writing as a creative medium, creating solid science fiction, placing humanity into nonhuman characters, world building, and just being a fun person.
