*Must Listen to Podcast*

Nicole Christiana is an engaging host that draws out guests. I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Nicole recently talking about my newly released book 'Senior Cyber'. Her questions were spot on allowing me to share tips that help seniors stay safe from cyber criminals. She knows her audience and does her research which listeners quickly will hear in the warm conversational style of her delivery. I appreciated that she injected personal real-life stories throughout our conversation making it relatable.

I highly recommend you take a listen to her inspiring podcast.

Wonderful Podcast

Enjoyed being interviewed by Nicole Christina. We had a lively conversation about activism--the protests of today vs those in the Anti-Vietnam War era (as depicted in my novel The Fourteenth of September) and what rings through both. Also about the hamster wheel of history, the role of the writer in these "interpretative years," advice to new writers and why Boomers are really OK and more. An insightful and interesting talk.
