You are wonderful! Wishing you more success in the coming year!

Congrats [on Season 1]! Let me know when we can continue the discussion!

V. Helena is a wonderful cheerleader for writers!  Her show The Writers Haven provides a forum for writers to discuss their work and reach their audiences.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the show and the conversation with V.  Thanks for all you do for the writing community.

V interviewed me for the show and I really enjoyed talking with her.  She's knowledgeable and passionate about books and authors and it shows.  Her questions were on point and she made me feel very comfortable.  It felt like two friends chatting about books and writing!

Fun interview with V. Helena on all kinds of things!

Thank you for the in-depth interview you conducted with me the other day. Seldom does anyone just unleash me like this. Your questions were probing and inspiring!

It was fabulous to have the chance to really talk about my work and my passion for writing.

EXTRAORDINARY. Best interview in my whole life!  It was seamless!
