Tyler: Thank you for joining me, today, Joyce. I understand “I Don’t Want to be Your Guru, but I Have Something to Say” has been compared to such fables as “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” and “The Little Prince.” To begin, how would you best define your book and will you tell us a little bit about the frame or structure of the book?
Joyce: Thank you, Tyler. It’s my pleasure to have this opportunity. “Guru” presents non-fiction, that is, real-life matters in a fictional format so that readers are invited to “overhear” a conversation and give the content consideration as opposed to being told “This is the way.” One humorous note about this format is that when someone wants to categorize it and asks, “Is it fiction or non-fiction?”—my answer is Yes.
