Recently, Sue at Doorway Between Worlds interviewed me for her blog. You can check out the interview here. I highly recommend taking a look around Sue’s blog. Not only does she ask fantastic questions, she also writes about writing, using sci-fi, creativity, wit, and humor to make issues of language and grammar interesting and accessible. Seriously, check it out. I’ve yet to encounter another blog like it. Good stuff.
I discovered fantasy writer Brenna Layne through her lyrical and insightful blog posts. When Brenna writes, she puts her heart into every word. She also has a wonderful sense of humour that never fails to lift me up. Her posts are written so beautifully that I admit to suffering from bouts of envy.
On finding out that Brenna is a teacher and an ESL tutor as well as a writer, I wanted to know about her thoughts on writing and communication. I asked her if she would share her experiences with DBW readers. To my delight, she said yes! Here is our conversation about writing, teaching, connections, and the importance of dragons.
