185: Inspirational Indie Author Interview #35: From the Bardic Tradition of Ireland to the Founding of ALLi, Meet Orna Ross the Novelist and Poet

My guest this week is Orna Ross, who many of you know as ALLi’s founder and director. But there’s another Orna Ross you may not know. This is the one who has taken a long journey from her childhood steeped in the storytelling culture of Ireland to her career as a journalist and then traditionally published novelist, a cancer survivor, and a poet. That’s the Orna Ross we’re going to meet today. 

Every week I interview a member of ALLi to talk about their writing and what inspires them, and why they are inspiring to other authors.
