I was excited when a friend of a friend contacted me for an interview last month. She was starting a new project meant "to energize, inspire and connect dynamic women of Pittsburgh’s South Hills." She heard of my book and wanted to write a feature about me for her first issue.
I am still very inexperienced when it comes to interviews, so I wasn't sure how much I would be able to say. I thought I'd meet with Kim for 20 minutes, maybe 30, and then I would go to the next thing on my list for the day. But this wasn't an interview - this was a conversation with a creative woman who was truly interested in what I do and how I do it. When we were finished I was shocked to see that we had talked for more than an hour! The time flew as she easily encouraged me to talk about my previous works, including my failures, and how they shaped the goals and perspective I have now.
I am proud to share a link to my article, but I also encourage you to read the rest of the issue. I know that there are amazing women all over the world, but sometimes it's nice to read about those who live nearby. And if you like what you see, sign up for a subscription. I did!
