  1. Hi Hephzibah,
    I’m a journalist in Toronto, and I contribute to AOL Canada’s I would love to do a Q&A with you about Chastened. If you’re game, I could send you a handful of questions to answer over the next week or two. Or, if you prefer, we can book a 15-minute phone interview at your earliest convenience.
    Thanks and all the best,

    • Hephzibah Anderson

    Hi Sarah:

    I’m a journalist, also in Toronto, and I’d like to interview you for a story I’m writing for a Canadian women’s magazine called Glow about how chastity can improve your sex life. Are you game? Please let me know at I’d like a telephone interview, if possible (before August 3), but given the short time frame, email would be fine.

    Kind regards,

    Lesley Young
