For the past four years Fireside Readers have had one teleconference with an author per year. While we have all enjoyed the experiences, we were unprepared for the intimacy and immediacy of our Skype Conference with Cathy. Our members were thrilled to see and speak her.
In preparation, members sent in questions which were then grouped in a roughly logical order. We do not like to rigidly follow the question list, but do like to be prepared should we become shy or should the conversation flag. Our questions were grouped under the following headings: The Writer's Decisions, The Writing Process and the Environment. As you can see the discussion ranged far and wide - there is far too little space here to do it justice.
Suffice to say, those members present declared it, "The best meeting ever!"
