Interview with Author Marc Severson

Our publisher, Sean Buvala, sat down with author Marc Severson to talk shop about his new book “Don’t Throw Me in the Cholla Patch!” recently published by us. A transcript is included below. It’s a transcript, not a polished, printed document. Enjoy the “flavor” of it all.

Listen at Anchor!

Sean Buvala: Hey. This is Sean Buvala with Small Tooth Dog Publishing Group. I’m talking today to one of our new authors. You’ve been around the block for a while.

Marc Severson: Thirty years or so.

Sean Buvala: This is Mark Severson. He has just released with us, Don’t Throw Me in the Choya Patch. The wood rat and coyote story. The first of the woodrat stories.

Marc Severson: Absolutely.

Sean Buvala: Mark, how are ya?

Marc Severson: I’m doing great. I like to say that over the last 30 years, I’ve become an overnight sensation.

Sean Buvala: Yes, that’s right. That’s all it takes is 30 years. Hey, so we are really pleased to see this book come out with you.

Marc Severson: Not as pleased as I was.

Sean Buvala: That’s good. Look, even your name is on it.

Marc Severson: I know.

Sean Buvala: Where does the story come from? What is the history?

Marc Severson: That’s a great question. When I was an archeologist, I used to be out in the Sonoran desert and I’d find these piles of brush and such. They were surrounded by cholla. I always wondered about them. The fellow that I was doing the survey with said they were woodrat nests. I just thought, “Wow, what a fascinating creature.” They can bring cholla to its nest to protect it from all the other animals.
