Ayn Gailey (ayngailey.com)(FB:@ayngailey)(IG:@ayngailey)(TW:@AynGailey)is an accomplished writer in multiple mediums. We discuss her process and among so many topics. This is her quote from her website and I think it sums Ayn up pretty darn well. "This is where I honor that quiet is stronger than loud; that substance will always trump status; that real leaders don't obsess over creating more followers (because they're busy creating more leaders). This is also where I share work that I create for myself and others, with some rumination and occasional lolly-gagging along the way.  Other writers, artists, and intellectuals will be invited to do the same in The Honest Q & A's.  Until our paths cross again, please make yourself at home." Ladies and Gentleman, Ayn Gailey. Enjoy!
