INTERVIEW WITH LIZA TAYLOR

When did you first feel like a writer?

When I had my first piece accepted for publication. I needed that validation. 

What's your philosophy about teaching a writing class?

Basically sharing my experience and offering information and answering questions. 

If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and why?

Excellent question! Miss Havisham, to see if she lived up to the hype.
