The video version of Babbie's House on the radio. I think I enjoy interviewing better than being interviewed. I did not know in advance the questions she would ask. They should have put me on the other side of Babbie, or I should have put the iPad in front of me instead of on the … Continue reading BABBIE’S HOUSE WITH TEENA MYERS

I had learned much about publishing before starting Southern Christian Writers, but it had been years since I had a manuscript published. If I was going to lead writers, all of them pursuing independent publishing, it was time to publish again.
Before we left to try another church, the Pastor’s sister made a request that led to us staying. “Can you start a writer’s group on the Westbank?”
