My super talented, busy guest - Lea Schizas
Excuse me, did I understand you? You don't know who Lea Schizas is? Have you ever heard of The Muse Online Writers' Conference? You're joking. What about The Writing Jungle? You poor thing. You are so fortunate that she is my guest today as part of the VBT - Writers on the Move.
Lea Schizas is the force behind The Muse Online Writers' Conference, the first ever conference held on the Internet, and it's free. She has experts, publishers, editors, and agents who hold classes on forums or during live chats, sometimes both. Publishers, editors, and agents take part, many accept pitches from writers. If you haven't heard about the conference, or have heard but not registered, please go to the website and register for the 2010 conference, a very easy procedure.
Lea also promotes help and education concerning Autism.
She doesn't keep busy enough with her five children and husband and the conference, etc., so she edits, reviews books (on The Muse Book Reviews), and writes.
I don't remember how we met, maybe through the Muse Online Conference four or five years ago, but I really got to know this remarkable woman after she submitted her middle grade manuscript to 4RV Publishing. Bubba & Giganto: Odds Against Us was released in July 2008.
I greatly admire Lea Schizas. I don't know how she accomplishes all she does. I hope visitors will leave comments about what they know about her and how they fell about this extremely remarkable woman I call friend.
So please share with us about Lea, give her memories that she can treasure.
P.S. Tour with VBT-Writers on the Move through February. New and famous authors, plus useful information. http://tinyurl.com/yhkt7v8
