I have interviewed over 300 authors, both renowned and rising stars.

WordCrafter Press has hosted and produced two vitual writing conferences featuring over 30 different authors.

My poem “Intimacy and the Harliquin Dance” was featured in part, in the painting by Mitch Brown, “Intimacy”. It was displayed at the Keliedescope Gallery, in Battle Sea Park, in London until it’s sale in 201o.
