February Smiles with Book Review and Author Interview

Pathways to Illumination Video Screen

Pathways to Illumination

Oh my, oh my! Today is a day for feeling extra special, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you all.

Talented writer Maggie Thom has invited me over to her self-named website today for an interview. I hope you will join us there! In addition to the interview, Maggie has reviewed my book Pathways to Illumination. I am really taken with her description of the poetry book and her recommendation of it. You can find the post here –>> Maggie Thom website.

As I meet writers such as Maggie, I am reminded of the unique profession I am in. Writing is a solitary activity, but there are many opportunities, as well, to meet others in the field. I have made some wonderful friendships with other creative people and am thankful for having those special people in my life. All of you who connect with me here at Poetic Parfait are a treat to see, and I appreciate when you read the posts. Your support really does help keep me going!

Let’s keep making 2014 a wonderful year to remember!

~This is christyb, skipping a little lighter today.

    That was a very thoughtful interview…

    I enjoyed Maggie´s questions to you as they are related with your writing skills, influences and your personal development as a writer.
    (I just wonder why she asked you nine questions instead of ten, that´s pretty strange, maybe she has tossed aside one, I bet she did)…

    Margaret Atwood. Okay I will have to read at least one of her books, You´d better tell me which one!..

    It has been a pleasure to read this post and to get to know more about your career and job .. Ergo; thanks for sharing CB…

    Many hugs from Aquileana :)

    • Aha, you’re the only one that noticed there are 9 questions… Aqui, nothing gets missed by you :) Yes, I didn’t answer one of them and Maggie said that was fine. You are clever!!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the interview – it was an opportunity to explain more about myself and Maggie provided such a lovely platform. I’m fortunate.

      HUGS to you, as well. For Atwood’s book, I really enjoy her earlier ones. “Surfacing” is less known but my favorite. “The Handmaid’s Tale” is a popular one – you would enjoy it.

      MORE HUGS xx
