Readings/Events

I really enjoy sharing work and views. Meeting people is one of the most wonderful things about writing.:D I’ll blog a bit more about this later.

UPDATE!!! Here’s my blog on Goodreads, which was actually my blog on the old Web site. 🙂

In the meantime, here’s a quick (very incomplete) list of places I’ve been. It’s from my CV, which needs updating… Grrr….  ❤
