When the Interviewer Becomes the Interviewee or When British Author E.L. Lindley Interviews Me

When the Interviewer Becomes the Interviewee or 
When British Author E.L. Lindley Interviews Me


Have you ever taken a jump, a leap of faith into the less known or familiar? How does it feel?

I'm asking because I had to kinda do just that a few days ago, when I agreed to be interviewed by E.L. Lindley, a wonderful British author of books like Dare to Lose and Don't Look Back.

See, usually I am the one who's doing the interviewing, not the other way around. I feel more comfortable putting the questions than answering them. While I don't usually get interviewed, when I do, I get nervous. That's because it's not always easy to switch hats.

But E.L. Lindley was superb! (Thanks again E.L.!) She made it so... exciting and intriguing to go through her list of questions and speak freely while coming up with the answers. What I loved about her questions was that they helped me take a fresh look at what I've been doing so far and what I'd like to do in the future, and put a name to it all, so to speak.

So, if you wanna check it out, please visit E.L. Lindley's Website. I hope you'll enjoy reading the interview as much as I enjoyed answering the questions.


As always, thanks for stopping by!
