Sometimes a writer is researching a character and doesn't know where to start. Sometimes a writer wants to interview someone but they can't find anyone to interview. I aspire to interview people around the world and people with various handicaps to create a massive resource for writers. My dream is to interview someone from every country across the world and as many people with handicaps as I can. If you'd like to volunteer to help with this project please email me at howellvictoriagrace(a)gmail(dot)com. This project isn't possible without interviewees!
