It’s time to get to know Adina Petre, our speaker liaison and story telling coach a little better.

So Adina, If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
I’d like to be a shape-shifter. So that I can crawl under the door in case I lose my key. Or take the shape of a mermaid and save a child from drowning. You know… just the usual shape-shifting needs.
