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.
