Interview highlights

Writing is isolating but the part of being an author is you have to be out there so people know who you are and that you create visibility.

When we’re face to face something happens that cannot be replaced by anything online.

Don’t give your title during introduction – give the benefit of what you do and what your book will do.

Small talk is how we build those little details connections that link us to people and have them engage with us.

Always know the etiquette and the culture of the room.

Bring who you are to what you do.
