Free Webinar

Please consider taking a moment to view the beautiful webinar my publisher prepared to spotlight the authorly me. It's called: How I became a published author. 

Although it will take a few minutes of your time, I think it will answer any questions you might have about how I became a published author and why my publisher refers to me as One of America's Most Gifted Writers. Some of you may want to see just how we incorporated some of you into this webinar. You know who you are. 

If you agree with me, that it answers a lot of questions about me and my writing style, perhaps you will consider sharing it with those you think would enjoy becoming familiar with someone who many of you have told me is your "new favorite author".

You will need to put in an email address to register for the webinar and then it takes about 1-2 minutes for it to load before you can watch.
