Networking with Tex Thompson
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In case you don't already know Tex Thompson, I'm thrilled to introduce the writing community to my friend, author, literary locksmith, and networker extraordinaire. This conversation is for the benefit of those of us who are introverted writers and need some skills and encouragement to venture out into the Writing Community, as well as for those who do not have a local community of writers, but would like to create one.

About Our Guest:

Arianne "Tex" Thompson is a licensed locksmith, egregiously enthusiastic editor, and professional ruckus-raiser. She is the author of Children of the Drought, an internationally-published epic fantasy Western trilogy from Solaris, as well as an instructor for Writing Workshops Dallas and ‘chief instigator’ of WORD – Writers Organizations ‘Round Dallas.  Now she’s blazing a trail through conferences, workshops, and conventions around the country – as an endlessly energetic, catastrophically cheerful one-woman stampede. 

Find Tex on her website, or connect with her on Twitter or Facebook.
