When I wrote for Beaumont newspapers, the Chamber of Commerce and insert magazines, I interviewed all kinds of people about their professions, their hobbies, and their hopes and dreams. Everyone from students to business owners. My favorite interview was with a Toastmasters organization. There were a lot of things I wanted to know about the club because I’ve always been curious about them. Because I had a genuine interest in it, I felt I did a better job with the interview and the article.
Today, I’m a staff writer for Southern Writers Magazine. I interview writers. Scheduled articles are with Louisiana author Vicki Allen, Arkansas author Robin Carrol, Mississippi author Terri Blackstock and Texas author Wendy Lanier. I enjoy interviewing all kinds of writers–more than any other subject I’ve written about–and find I learn something from each interview.
