In February of this year, I served as a faculty member at the California Creative Writers Conference in Culver City, California—one of the West Coast Writers Conferences (WC2). At that event, the Author Learning Center interviewed me. I’ve never used the services of the Author Learning Center, but felt that my comments might be useful to other writers. After all, “Writers Helping Writers” is the motto of California Writers Club, San Francisco Peninsula Branch—an organization in which I’m quite active.
Soon after the February conference, COVID-19 changed my focus and that of millions and millions of other people. I forgot about the interview until my recent discovery. The Author Learning Center has divided my interview into a number of short segments. They have published five on YouTube so far. A few more may follow.

I hope you have a chance to listen to my comments. Feel free to ask questions. I’ll do my best to respond to them.
