I meet some amazing people in the writing and publishing world online! I met Maralyn on a publishing forum. She has a wealth of experience and manages to combine her writing, cooking and travel into one brilliant life! I asked Maralyn for this interview in December but she has been jetsetting the world with her business – all evidence that you can be a successful author and business-woman even in the “downturn”.
Maralyn provides consulting, coaching and editing services to other authors, gives writing seminars and does food judging. Recently, she was producer and host of a Time Warner Cable television and web series, “Dishing with Carolina Chefs.” Maralyn is President of the International Food, Wine, & Travel Writers Association, as well as its Conference Co-Chairman. She is also a member of the Organizational Network, The Organizational Development Institute, Travel Writers Association, Freelance Writers.com, The Association of Psychological Type International, and other professional associations.
