We’re celebrating the publication of Gabi Coatsworth’s latest book, Love’s Journey Home! A gripping story about star-crossed lovers, this memoir concerns itself with the trials and triumphs of years-long relationships and the true meaning of connection. Click here for more info!

Coatsworth is an award-winning British-born writer and blogger who has spent half her life living in the United States. A member of several national writing associations, she’s active in the Connecticut writing community and runs several groups for writers. In 2018, she worked on the inaugural Saugatuck StoryFest, a literary festival in Westport. Her essays, short fiction, and poetry have been published in anthologies and literary journals, both in print and online. Her long fiction is represented by Joelle Delburgo Associates.

Gabi will be in conversation with Randye Kaye. Randye harnesses the power of words in her work as a radio personality (STAR 99.9, WSHU/NPR), improv and stage actor, drama teacher, humorist, podcast host, writer, motivational speaker, voice talent, and audiobook narrator. It’s an eclectic worklife and her calendar is, yes, color coded to keep it all straight. She wrote Happier Made Simple in response to readers of her first book, Ben Behind His Voices, and attendees of her presentations, who always asked, “With all you’ve been through, how do you stay so positive?” This book is her answer, written with love and humor. She leads fun and interactive workshops (self-esteem, resilience, presentation skills, humor), and inspiring keynotes about connection and communication. Her bestselling book, Ben Behind His Voices: One Family’s Journey from the Chaos of Schizophrenia to Hope, was nominated for a Publisher’s Weekly Award. She lives with her family in Connecticut.
