Spotlight on Susan Haley

For those of you who want to know more about Susan Haley, the facilitator of our local FWA chapter, there is an excellent and informative interview with her on a blog that is coordinated by Bree Hill. Bree is a sometimes-resident of Sarasota, a book reviewer, a world traveler, and an excellent writer in her own right.

This interview may be especially helpful to our new members who are wondering just who this Susan Haley is? What has she accomplished? What are her goals? And how did she end up as our local "den mother?"

Click on the following link for the answer to these and to the many other questions that might be floating around in your head.

One of the most advantageous benefits of FWA membership is statewide coverage of our publicity announcements. The link to our own Sarasota blog is on the main FWA website. Anyone browsing there in this area will click on our blog. So we help ALL FWA members when we share our announcements from group to group.
An FWA member in the Fort Myers group will be signing and discussing her new novel "The Ride" at Barnes and Noble here in Sarasota next Saturday, 4/11/09 from 1-4. Let's try to support each other and visiting FWA members, as well. Anyone looking for an Easter Gift for an adult? Maybe a visit with Jane on Saturday would end your search.
