Two seriously enthusiastic shout-outs to Paige McGreevy and Zibby Owens for affording me opportunities to chat with them about my memoir Uncomfortably Numb.
These two women have been incredibly generous in helping writers, whose work is being published during a pandemic, connect with book lovers.
McGreevy, who started the New York City-based Les Bleus Literary Salon, has been hosting writers via Zoom as they read from the new books for an audience of literary enthusiasts. (Several of my fellow authors from Lockdown Literature, pictured on the right, have read from their books in recent weeks, so I was in illustrious company.)
Meanwhile, Owens, a well-respected book podcaster who created Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books, recently spoke with me for her Instagram Live author interview series.
You can watch the interview as it happened below. (Luckily, Tedy, my hyper-yappy dog, did NOT burst through my office door — which never quite clicks closed — and start barking. PLUS my three, college-aged kids — who are all finishing up their spring semesters virtually — did not slow down the internet enough to boot me offline.)
Here’s the link to the video.
Thank you Paige and Zibby! You are truly doing public service, at least to writers and readers!
