Tips from the Pros: Cheri Cowell (Christian Authors Network)

It may look as though I’ve gone missing lately. In truth, I’ve been busy serving and teaching in Estes Park, Colorado at the Colorado Christian Writers Conference.

Cheri, a popular author and speaker, has several wise tips to share with us today. Enjoy the interview here. And stay tuned tomorrow here for a Words with Friends interview with another author and speaker friend. Next week: more information on my new...
