Virtual Coffee Interviews


Since embarking on the journey of writing a book and then going online to create a profile and finally step into the world of publishing and marketing, I have met and e-met a variety of people who have been inspiring, informative, wise or just damn interesting.

By now there are many I'd love to sit down with over a coffee to pick their brains about their writing and the book industry. It suddenly dawned on me, why not do it virtually? Send my questions by email and share the answers with you.


Please find these virtual coffee interviews below and enjoy, perhaps with a coffee...
