Watch tonight as Jay shows the Maui Writers’ Conference “Pitch to America” segment! A friend, Malena Brooks, may be on there pitching her women’s fiction novel. With a name like Malena you’d think she’s Hawaiian, but no, she’s African-American. She’s a lovely lady with the most infectious attitude you ever came up against. No matter how down I might feel, an evening talking with Malena always brightens my outlook. The woman is smart and classy and she knows what she wants. 🙂 So tune in tonight and see if Malena made the cut!
