Ep 14: Isabelle Peterson

A good book is like a fine wine – intrigues, rouses our emotions, and can move us to tears. There are many people in the world who can move us with their writing. 

Now, there are numerous forms of writing. Some prefer poetry – capturing our feelings in a unique way. Others, express themselves through fiction – creating characters and bringing them to life. Sometimes those characters are little pieces of the writer, twisted into a character you’ll love or hate.
