And while we have you with us, would you consider helping to support and build Ottawa Writes? It takes a load of work to bring these interviews togeather (props to Kevin), so we’d love as many writers as possible to be able to find them. With that in mind, on the sidebar are three options for you – to subscribe, share, and follow 🙂 Thanks!
