You can listen now to Leigh Anne Lindsey, of KGUA radio in Gualala, Calif., interview author and publisher Laura McHale Holland. One refreshing thing about their discussion is that it’s not rushed. Listen to the whole hour or just catch part of it. Learn about one creative person’s evolution, what drives her and intrigues her, and what advice she has for people longing to follow a creative path but who are holding back from taking the leap.

I’ll be attending the monthly meeting of Redwood Writers Sunday, April 14, 2019. The topic will be working with illustrators, something I don’t plan to do anytime soon, but I expect I’ll learn something new anyway. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about opportunities for writers in the North Bay and upcoming events of interest. Hope to see you at the Flamingo, 2777 Fourth Street in Santa Rosa, from 2:30 to 4:30. It’s a good idea to come a bit early to socialize and network. Cost is $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers.
