If you followed along the last week, Emmanuelle Morgen (my agent) and I had a lot of fun! A few Q&A sessions, and then also a contest. If you entered the contest for a chance at a one-chapter critique by Emmanuelle herself, today is the day where you learn if your luck came due. And […]

On Discover A New Love, they are hosting a live chat with me! Tonight, 9pm Eastern (8pm Central, etc.) I’ll be on hand to talk about whatever you want. Yup, YOU! You pick the topics. Ask the questions. Pose the ponderances. (I don’t think that’s a word, but roll with me here.) And the best […]

Hey everyone! It’s time for another Military Moment, this time brought to you by a super-cute couple named Mary and Larry. Larry’s been in the Army for twenty-four years now, so he’s been around the block a time or two. And these two have been married for fourteen years, so we’ve got some experience on […]

Also known as: Party Time! That’s right. I’ve signed with an agent. I am so unbelievably excited. Emmanuelle Morgen, of Judith Ehrlich Literary Management, has deemed me worthy enough to benefit from her excellence. I could not be more thrilled. You know how, when you’re dating and people always tell you “You’ll just know when […]

We moved to another apartment, thank God. It’s a big change, size wise. It has a huge den (they call it a basement, but whatever) that we are using as a sort of playroom and storage center. My office is much bigger (yay!). Actually, everything is bigger. But oh my God, moving is such a […]
