I’m thrilled to share the Zoom interview I recored in November with my writer friend, Amre Cortadino, AKA Erma Ullrey.
Erma is currently pre-published but she’s racked up quite a few awards, and I have no doubt we’ll see her name on a published book very soon!
I hope you enjoy getting to know this up and coming author and will see her heart for the Lord shine through our conversation!
Join the conversation. What aspect of the interview did you enjoy most? Do you have any questions for Erma? Let us know in the comments.
Amre Cortadino is a follower of Jesus Christ. Married for forty years, she enjoys four wonderful children, three outlaws, and four precious grandchildren. She worked in the medical field for over twenty-five years.
