Writing is my all time favourite thing to do. My next favourite thing is to interview other writers and find out what makes them tick. Over the years, I've had the privilege and pleasure to meet and chat with a lot of amazing writers. This page is a part brag book and part resume for any organisation seeking a seasoned facilitator for their next event or book launch.
