At my weekly networking breakfast we each have the opportunity to speak about what our companies do.

A great night at the Massapequa Library with authors Dina Santorelli, Nicola Harrison and Gregg Inkpen. The crowd was enthralled, and the authors amazingly open about their writing process and book development adventure. What a great night!
