I Was Very Excited To Be A Guest on the WV Author TV Program

Updated: Dec 31, 2022

On Tuesday morning, I was at the West Virginia Culture Center at the West Virginia State Capital in Charleston to be the guest author on the "WV Author" program, which is a production of the West Virginia Library Television Network. I had a wonderful interview with M Lynne Squires. Lynne posted, "Talented poet and lovely woman...great interview."

I had no prior knowledge of the questions that Lynne would be asking, and I really enjoyed the spontaneity and free flow of the interview. I also wondered how the fact that I am a transgender woman would be handled, and that was taken care of right away by Lynne in her introduction.

A link to the interview will be available after production is completed. As they say in the TV business…..stay tuned!
