Rewind: Lightbulb Moments with Tess Woods


Welcome to the first rewind episode for July 2021. It's an episode that has been previously.  released - my chat with Perth author Tess Woods.  Tess is the three novels, Love at First Flight (2015), Beautiful, Messy Love (2017) and Love and Other Battles (2019). In addition to being an author Tess is a physiotherapist, a mentor and a writing teacher. She has two children, and manages to fir so much into her very busy life. This is an edited version of my original chat with Tess, done at the time she was about to release her third book Love and Other Battles, and is all about where Tess gets her inspiration, her writing process, the bits she loves about writing and the bits she hates. It's a fun, chatty interview to start off our month of rewinds while I take a break from recording new episodes to get some writing time and do some podcasts preparation for the second half of the year.   Grab a cuppa and join us on The Convo Couch for Lightbulb Moments.Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/writes4women?fan_landing=trueSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
