My Writing Journey

Stealing an hour with author, Rachael Ritchey

Had a lovely time chatting with fellow author MJ Hudon over at The Squid & Squirrel last week! I hope you’ll head over and check it out. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

When I realized who she was, and which book of hers was still gracing my e-reader I knew this interview had to happen.

We spent a quick hour sipping coffee in a noisy Starbucks.

            1. Hey, Roger! Did you ever get that email I sent you back at the end of September about the ASF short story edits/revisions? I’m at the point where I’m going to compile stories, and I can’t find an email or anything where you might have sent me that stuff. Sorry for not reaching out again sooner. Things have been plugging along at a fast pace lately! πŸ™‚

            2. Sorry Rachael that didn’t reach me. Could you send it again?
              (The problem may have been that Yahoo shoved it into ‘Spam’ and I’ve only just found out that the browser I use does not signal receipt of Spam, whereas the OLD IE one did….and here was I thinking I was not getting any spam anymore) 🀨
