This podcast might change my life!

What a brilliant concept. I have always believed that deep down, I am a writer - but “real life” gets in the way. Just listening to Stephen’s engaging interviews with other like-minded people who actually followed through... it’s SO inspiring. It’s very well done - great questions, honest, helpful answers. This is making me rethink my life and redirecting my energy. Can’t wait for the next one.

A breath of fresh air

It is great to hear a podcast about interesting books. I have listened Stephen on the Rob Cesternino podcast. Stephen has a great personality.

After listening to the author talk about his book; Start Without Me, I purchased it on

A master class

Listening to Paraphrase is like getting an MFA without having to pay tuition and going to the best book club without having to read the book! Host Stephen Fishbach poses super-smart questions to super-interesting writers about their craft, finding out how they launched their novels and careers—and teaching us how to do it, too.
