Here's To My Favorite Author/Friends I've Never Met


This wave of technology whisks us into the life of a person, and sometimes the connection can become as tight as the fibers in an oriental tapestry.

Authors we randomly meet online, have admired from the bookshelf, or know only through the media, can now follow, like, fan, or friend us with a nano click of the mouse. I have several I count as treasured friends.

In the next few days/weeks, I plan to introduce some of them in my blog through a series of interviews. Now these are very busy people, so I'm working on their schedules and am grateful for their time.

Whether you are an established author or novice writer, I believe you'll find this an exciting opportunity to step into their private world of achievements and challenges.

It's strange and wonderful how we can connect so easily nowadays with other authors and our readers. :) I love that part of cyberspace. Can't wait to read the interviews, Jeannie!!

I am sorry it has taken me so long to get here Jeannie, but thank you for inviting me and what a wonderful idea. All the authors I call friends are 'virtual' although I have had an opportunity to meet a few.

Thank you for stopping by, Anita! The internet has opened an awesome path...states or countries apart...we're only an email away. Blessings!
