Ron Tanner has been crafting stories for decades, but it was his turn-of the-century move, when he and his girlfriend began renovating an old frat house together that inspired his memoir, From Animal House to Our House: A Love Story. The home has been featured in This Old House magazine and is also the subject of Ron Tanner’s website, www.houselove.org. He discusses how the renovations helped him to examine his relationships and his work as a writer. He also reads from his short story book, A Bed of Nails, winner of the G.S. Sharat Chandra Fiction Prize from BkMk Press. As a result of his 2012 DIY Book Tour, Tanner has since published the e-book, How To Sell A Book in America, and is looking forward to his next renovation.
