On my pre-Comic-Con stopover in Los Angeles, on 7/21/14, I had the pleasure of chatting in person with two of the stars of round 2 of my “girl in the video” interview series.
The first was Karen Peterson Matchinga, but our time was so limited and conversation so nice that we forgot to take a photo. She’s generous and compassionate—truly a pleasure. You may hear more about her here as her works-in-progress take shape.
The second was Macha Bennet-Shephard, AKA Sister Christian, a week to the day that her interview posted to enthusiastic response. Macha is also an absolute delight. Grounded, interested, intelligent—and a good mom, too. (I can say that because I saw it; she brought her 9-year-old son, who impressed me by, among other things, ordering a salad.)

Getting an engaging interview out of someone can be a good challenge. Getting a friend out of an engaging interview is a good fortune.
