New Novel Loved!!

Well, the highlight of this past week was having a terrific conference call with my UK editor and my agent about my new novel.
Everyone loves the premise and the writing -- just sprucing it up a little bit more with their great, insightful suggestions.
I'm so inspired after those kinds of calls I could light up the tree at Rock Center. And what writer doesn't like being reminded they are the new Anita Shreve? Oy, if only I had as many readers, right? ( Let's just say it again -- Book clubs, if you liked The Pilot's Wife, you'll love my current novel, Standing Still. And since you're wondering, the new novel will be called The Bird House, at least in the UK.)

New Kind of Literature Class

A nice article in the Philadelphia Inquirer today bout Lynn Rosen's class (which taught my novel this semester.) They spelled my name wrong but hey it's close!
