I Love Giving Interviews and Talks!

When I was little, I entered talent show after talent show, tap dancing my heart out, never winning. But that didn’t stop me. I’m a ham! I no longer tap dance, but I’d be happy to tailor a talk for your group, whether it’s a book club, library event, writers’ group, civic group, religious organization, or any women’s gathering.

Got an idea? Run it by me. I’m always happy to come up with a new talk.
