#RRBC SPOTLIGHT Author, Micki Peluso!!

More of Micki’s tour – about making live appearances including TV no less! Micki – you are amazing! I think the ‘performance’ side of being a writer is a major worry for a lot of us – I know I’d be sh*t-scared to do what you did there, so you’re a genuine hero to me now! ❤
