Think back.  What’s the best idea you ever had?

Hear Us Roar: Interviews with women's fiction writersMine definitely came in early 2018 when I hatched the idea of doing a podcast where I’d interview first-time authors about not only their book but also their path to publication, As a long-time member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), I decided this would be the perfect venue for showcasing my fellow members when they published their debut novel and approached the board with the idea.

A triple win:  Enhance the reputation and value of this great organization; give publicity to members as they launched their career; and increase my own visibility in the writing community.

Please take a few minutes to listen to a few of my 30-minute interviews with a growing roster of WFWA members as they share their stories.
