MEETING THE READERS: I like going to festivals because I get to meet my readers. I think it’s a normal part of being a writer to engage with those I write for. I like to know what they get out of my storytelling, which characters they relate to and why. I especially loved the audience engagement in our chick lit session with support from readers such as Colleen Hickey (pictured above). She gladly stepped in as one-woman cheer squad, just like a mother. Too gorgeous!
BYRON BAY BEACH FRONT: One cannot ignore the absolute beauty of the beachfront at Byron. Peaceful beyond words so I won’t add any. The photo speaks for itself. And I’m grateful.
