Hi – my name is Karena Wynn-Moylan.
People often ask me where the interviews I conduct with some wonderful authors, musicians, filmmakers and artists each week can be heard again – well here it is!
These blogs will have some of the interviews I have broadcasted plus a few that are completely exclusive. I might also throw in a few photos of art pieces I really like, or provide a few samples of new music you may not have heard .
Some of you may have arrived here by following Facebook posts I have made or from my other websites or from hearing me on the radio.If you or someone you represent would like to be featured here just email me for consideration.
THE NARRATIVES LIBRARY
The Narratives Library site will contain hundreds of live short reads by authors of their own work linked to the authors interviews.
The readings are categorised by themes so you can dip into crime, love, travel, food, politics, children’s lit and young adult and more. You can subscribe to this library on the site and receive updates. Also coming is the Narratives app so you take literature with you everywhere.

On the Posts, the book covers and author’s head shots will link you to their sites or their publishers or where you can buy their book or CD.
And as a bit of shameless self promotion, while you are here, have a look at some of my artbooks on page two.
Also listen to the documentaries ‘The Written word, the Spoken thought’ for lots of thought provoking interviews from authors, publishers, writers festival directors and the reading public.
