An Interview with RRBC’s “Rave Waves Buy the Book”


Yesterday I was honored to be interviewed by author Beem Weeks for one of the weekly online radio shows of the Rave Reviews Book Club (RRBC). Entitled “Rave Waves Buy The Book,” the show features a different author for a half-hour each week, highlighting their latest work and taking questions from Twitter.

It’s one of the many resources for authors that comes as part of membership in the Rave Reviews Book Club. For more information on how to join RRBC, click here.


The “Raves Waves Buy the Book” show yesterday centered on my novel, “Bravura,” which I’ve shared about on this blog previously. The book follows a group of young classical musicians in 1960’s London and beyond.

But the show gives some insights into the book and my writing process which I hadn’t shared on the blog before. So I thought it would be great to have the interview speak for itself as my post this week.

Enjoy! And onward.





If It Weren’t For…

I’m thrilled to share that this Wednesday I’ll be interviewed on the creative blog, Clockwork Conversations, by February Grace, author of wonderful books such as Godspeed and Of Stardust (Booktrope,

It’s been a joy getting to know the lovely “Bru” a bit better on Twitter, and sharing thoughts about our writing careers, latest projects, and life in general. She is a talented writer and painter, a generous spirit, and a brave, wise woman.

She’s also a perfect example of why I’m glad I joined Twitter: I’ve grown as a writer and person as a result of meeting her and reading her work. And if I hadn’t joined the Twittersphere, I would not have known about her and would have lost out on all of that growth.

Sometimes when we step out toward a new path or venture, we cannot see the benefits right away. But after the last two years, I can now point to numerous writers, books, conferences, publications, opportunities and resources I found on Twitter that I never would have found otherwise — or it would have taken me months longer, at best, to find all of it online in random searches.

And who would think that as a result, two years later, I’d have the chance to share a creative exchange with such a talented lady. I look forward to having her on this blog soon as well!

P.S. One adventurous suggestion: National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) begins this weekend on Nov. 1. Your chance to write a first draft (50,000 words) in 30 days. It is an amazing experience! (
