On May 18th, join us here to read my in-depth interview with Fran Orenstein about the writer's life, finding the balancing between family and writing, and also what is like to be a Writing Mama. Fran shared, "Personally, being a published author and poet is a fulfillment of a dream I have had since I wrote my first poem at age eight. Part of that dream is to leave a legacy for the future, whether it is simply a book my grandchildren will enjoy and pass on through the generations, to the ultimate dream of producing a classic that will live on forever."
