I enjoy talking about my books to groups of readers — at literary festivals, in libraries, or for book groups.  I’d be happy to  hear from you if you would like me to talk to a group you are connected with – live or on-line.

  1. Thoroughly enjoyed Marion’s Q & A session with a group of local readers, followed the next day by an inspirational workshop, presented in Marion’s generous and gentle way, think about why writing matters, and what we all have to share from our own life experience.
