    A WRITER'S LIFE 📚 Caroline Adderson

    A WRITER'S LIFE 📚 Caroline Adderson

    Last spring I spoke  with Caroline Adderson, who is the author of five novels, and many books for young readers. We spoke about when she joined the youth program, Katimavik. I loved hearing about why, and how she became a writer. Caroline is the Program Director of the Writing Studio at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, which runs for five weeks every May. I learned about The Shoe Project, and of course hearing her read, and talk about her lates novel  A Russian Sister Published  by Harper Collins Canada, 2020 it was fascinating. Caroline is not just a gifted writer, a brilliant teacher,  but she gives back so much to the writing community.

    A WRITER'S LIFE 📚 DANIEL PAISNER

    A WRITER'S LIFE 📚 DANIEL PAISNER

    This was an intriguing and fun interview, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little intimidated. Daniel Paisner is an amazing writer and a well-established Ghost writer, New York magazine once called him “the world’s most prolific ghost,” 

     His bio reads, Daniel Paisner is a journalist, author and podcaster, with more than 70 books to his credit, including 17 New York Times best-sellers. He is the “voice” of Serena Williams, Steve Aoki, John Kasich, Whoopi Goldberg, Denzel Washington, Ray Lewis, Ron Darling, Gilbert Gottfried, Anthony Quinn . . .  
    We talked a bit about his early childhood, books he grew up with, he spoke about what it is like being a ghostwriter, we did a little surfing, well not actually surfing, but  I learned  about a very wonderful organization called Surfers Healing.  We didn't get the time to talk about his podcast  As Told To, next time.  I loved hearing about his lates book Balloon Dog  published by Koehler Books.

    For more information about Daniel Paisner and his works, click on the links below.  Thank you, Daniel for a fun and informative interview. All good wishes.
