This time with everything!

This week Kate and Katherine discuss mentors.  Kate sings the praises of both formal and informal mentors and Katherine laments a work mentorship that never got off the ground.

Then Kate speaks to writer of historical fiction for children, teens and adults (and mentor!), Kelly Gardiner. They cover everything from pirates to residencies to 'golden hours'.  BYO notebook.
