   The LiFE Award: Literature for the environment has a new recipient: Getting Home, by Jennifer Poulter

   I think you'll enjoy listening to Diane Wing interviewing me.

   Florence Weinberg has reviewed Sleeper, Awake.

   THREE wonderful ladies have interviewed me. Jean read Ascending Spiral, and sent me a very complimentary email. I asked her to post a review, but she preferred to interview me instead. I think you'll like our exchange.

   Second, Sally Odgers has interviewed me on her blog. She is an old internet friend, and is one of those rare writers who can make a living from her many books in a variety of genres. Sally asked just one question: the BIG one for a writer.

   Third, Teena Raffa-Mulligan and I talked about writing. If you're a writer, and even if you're not, you will find this interesting and useful.

   Lori Soard has interviewed me on internet radio. You can listen at http://coffeewithauthors.com.
