SSV’s Author Interview & Review Series:  The series began with our 100th book review on Soul Avenged by Keri Lake. We enjoyed the process immensely and decided to continue it as part of Silk Screen Views. It’s exciting to delve into a story and have a chance to talk to the writer. To share that joy and excitement, SSV works hard to bring you a glimpse into the authors and their stories.
