Featured Guests

Hi everyone,

First, my thanks to yesterday’s Featured Guest, Donna Marie Merritt. It was a great post and many readers have been enjoying her words and philosophy.

I haven’t shared the complete list of Featured Guests lately so today I’m posting them and the dates on which they appeared to help you find them in the files. Some have appeared a second time as guests invited to update us on “What Are the Pros Up To?” Coming up next will be Cheryl Harness on Monday.

Here is the list of Featured Guests, professionals in their field who have appeared or are scheduled in the next few weeks. If you want to read what any of them have to say, scroll to the bottom of the page to see names listed there, and click on any of interest. That will give you the dates of appearance. Click on any of them to go directly to the source. You may spot many you know. The list includes several categories: agent, editor, professor, teacher, poet, nonfiction, fiction, website creator, social media expert, playwright, reading expert, and artist.

If you think of someone you would like to see added to my list of Featured Guests, please let me know. I’m always glad to receive your suggestions.
