The Author Speaks!

This page is just so that you can find the interview with a particular author.

I will list the person’s name, and alongside it the book I reviewed, linked to the review, as well as the month I published the interview.

These are all wonderfully creative people – hopefully you will get to appreciate them as much as I do, in their own words! Enjoy!!
