If you have ever wanted to ask our authors about their articles or their work, here is your chance. We host a monthly live chat via Google+ Hangouts on Air to introduce our authors to our readers. These half-hour lunchtime conversations allow readers to get to know our authors and interact with them in a casual setting.
