Heart and Hustle with me, Paulette Rees-Denis,

and our fun guest, Jen Violi, writer, writing coach, author, sparkly word connecter, on episode #34

Hello hello hello,

I am so delighted to bring you Jen Violi, because she is so freakin real when she writes, bringing vulnerability to the forefront, with insight and humor.  Her book is called Putting Makeup on Dead People!  Wow… awesome name and book… She writes essays for a variety of magazines, and has weekly love letters. Plus she mentors other writers by making sanctuary for their stories, guiding other writers in their work.

And what about that rosemary popcorn?! And the original detective of joy…what a great description of what Jen does!

Enjoy our talk and let us know what you think! Post in the comments below…

As always, thanks for being here in our community!
