As a writer, Joe Hill's family name could have given him a leg up. Instead, he chose to create his own. In this episode of the 10-Minute Writer's Workshop, we talk to Joe about his process and how he came to it, growing up in a literary home, and what he would be doing if he wasn't writing.
 
We sat down with the best-selling author just before his appearance at Writers on a New England Stage at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH, where he was discussing his latest thriller, The Fireman.
