Welcome to the most recent listings of my radio and podcast interviews regarding my experiences of living in the Middle East, as well as to promote my upcoming book, I Survived a Tsunami and So Can You.
I've recently been accepted into the 2022 Colgate Writer's Worskhop for June, 2022 with a scholarship! I sent in some sample chapters from my upcoming memoir and got in! I am so excited as this will be the perfect place to work on my craft, meet with agents and publishers and get to know other writers. What a blessing
Yesterday I had the opportunity to be on Anthony Muiruri's Podcast called "Book Talk @Book Place out of Greece! Anthony was a wonderful interviewer and we talked a lot about life in the Middle East, surviving the 2004 tsunami in Thailand as well as the "tsunamis" we all face in life, the challenges, taking risks, and having to start over again. https://bookplacemedia.com/jennifer-benson/

Thank you Conor Bredin for having me on your "Story of a Storyteller" podcast all the way from Ireland!

Jennifer

Today I had the honor of being a guest on Conor "Story of a Storyteller" podcast. We talked about living abroad, living in the Middle East, outrunning the 2004 tsunami, and the people who inspired me to write growing up. My mom, Ellen, and my high school English teacher, Ginnah, both encouraged me to read and write.
Thank you for being here! Today I am posting my podcast with "Living and Thriving with Rustie." Rustie was such a wonderful host as she asked many thought-provoking questions about my 13 years of teaching in the Middle East. We also discussed how those experiences helped me to be even more culturally empathic, more open-minded, and more appreciative of my small hometown in central New York. Thank you so much Rustie for having me on your show!
Yesterday I was honored to be on the British "Ghostman Radio Show" with Mark Antony Raines. Mark specializes in paranormal, comedy, horror, aliens, bigfoot and authors! A very interesting mix and I was excited to be on his show. We chatted about life in the Middle East, the 2004 tsunami as well as my English as a Second language teaching and how things are going in my job right now.
Thank you Mark for having me on your show!. Thank you for allowing me to promote my memoir too!.
I was recently asked to come on the Douglas Coleman show to talk about my years teaching in the Middle East, experiencing the 2004 tsunami as well as introducing my upcoming memoir, Beautiful Possibilities. I was so thankful for this opportunity. Writing a book, marketing it, and getting it published is still so foreign to me but I am learning it all as I go. I have to have faith that it will all work out the way it is meant to. Thank you for watching! Jennifer
Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to be interviewed on the "Living and Thriving with Rustie Radio Show." It was such an honor to meet her and talk about our mutual love of travel, as well as my upcoming memoir, Beautiful Possibilities. The interview airs October 22 on YouTube. I keep asking for the Universe to help me get this memoir marketed and published and to send me the right people and the right connections for the highest good of all. I am so lucky to have met Rustie!
