An Interview with Crossroads PR

I was recently interviewed by Jennifer Gardner from Crossroads PR for a series of Author Q&A/Profiles commissioned by Syncfusion for their authors in the succinctly range.

Unfortunately my responses where too long for the post to go on the Syncfusion Blog, so they had to be shortened.

Dang is it 2012 already?

So here I am again, starting off yet another post, with the phrase “Yes I am still Here” 🙂 which seems to be the norm these days.
