I very much enjoy getting the chance to do author Q&As, when time permits and the author is willing.
Many are e-conversations (where I send the questions via e-mail and the author responds), but occasionally an author prefers to talk over the phone. Every once in awhile I get a chance to meet an author in person, as I did Lisa Hendey back when I started this blog and interviewed her about her first book, The Handbook for Catholic Moms. That was a treat!
A few of the authors, especially local ones, I know as friends or have gotten to know or meet. I love reading and writing, and getting to hear all about an author's craft and subject.
Here are links to most of the author Q&As I've done over the years. If you'd like to see the reviews of these books, I usually link to each book in the interview, or you can, visit this tab.
