I love to talk writing! I have spoken at local libraries, indie bookstores, and my local Barnes & Noble. With more than thirty years experience, hundreds of published articles, a journalism award, and four Amazon bestselling books, I love sharing my knowledge with aspiring writers. I would love to come talk to your writing group, book club, or organization, about writing, whether it be freelance or getting started on that book. Contact me today for available dates and costs.
