Conversations with Wisconsin Artists Interview

Last week, I was interviewed by Rex Owens during Conversations with Wisconsin Artists on Sun Prairie’s KSUN 103.5 The hour long program airs twice a month and features people with a variety of artistic expertise.

During my interview, I spoke about what inspired me to write my fist novel, The Vanishing Kidnapper, as well as my experience with Intercultural Communication. I also shared about my work coaching students and teens on how to improve their writing.

It was a great experience and a fun conversation. If you missed it, you can find the recording here.

Thank you, again, to Rex and the KSUN studio for having me.
