Writing is my passion. I love to talk about the process of writing, the purpose, the pleasure. I put a writing tip or observation on Instagram every other day or so. If you have any questions about writing, whether it’s a 100 word paragraph or “couch-to-novel” – hit the connect button send me a note.
Until then, enjoy the conversation:
