#AuthorInterview: Loni Townsend

I’ve known of today’s featured Idaho author, Loni Townsend, well before this blog ever came into existence as she once upon a time was a co-worker with my ex. Only once I moved to North Carolina, did I discover her writing efforts. I quickly grew to love her Insecure Writer’s Support Group (#ISWG) posts that appear on the first Wednesday of each month. Now that I live back in Idaho, I still have yet to meet her in...
