My conversation partner today is Anna-Marie O’Brien.

Anna-Marie O'Brien grew up in Ohio as a fan of rock music and good books. After working for a record label in the early 1990's, she spent almost 20 years as a public librarian. She now coaches writers through their creative journey, and is currently working on her third book. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona. Find Anna-Marie at: annamarieobrien.com
