About our moderator, Katherine Maxfield:

“Thank you, Katherine, for your expert conversational style!” -Armistead Maupin

“Katherine Maxfield was impressively well prepared and is a splendid, gifted conversationalist” - Michael Krasny

Maxfield’s conversations with writers have been favorably compared to Terry Gross’ Fresh Air, City Arts & Lectures, and Celebrity Forum. Her friendly yet probing style encourages writers to reveal their writing and thought processes, delves into the world of agents and publishers, and examines interesting angles of their most recent publication.

Maxfield has a BA (economics), an MBA (marketing) and an MFA (writing). She worked for Silicon Valley’s ComQuest, ROLM Corporation, Polycom, Apple, and 3Com. Her non-fiction book, Starting Up Silicon Valley, was named a Kirkus Best Book of 2014 and was a 2015 Eric Hoffer winner in the business category. Her award-winning short fiction and personal perspectives have appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Ontario Review, and numerous other literary journals.

About Glen and Les Charles

Raised in Las Vegas, the Charles brothers graduated from the University of Redlands in California. Les followed in his mother's footsteps and received a BA in education, while Glen attended law school and eventually worked as an advertising copywriter. After working in their respective professions for a few years, it became apparent that neither brother was content in his job. Both dreamed of something more, and soon, they penned their first TV script. Their first break set off a series of successes that are unparalleled in comedy writing, bringing them dozens of Emmy awards and entertaining audiences in prime time for decades. You won’t want to miss hearing their inside stories.
