My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Leave no stone unturned.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. My laser-beam focus.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Inspector Poirot, no, Sherlock Holmes, no,....
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. It means following my deepest intuitive feelings. That means doing work that feels like fun, being around people who are authentic and optimistic, saying 'no' to anything that takes me off my path, and saying 'yes' to everything else.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. Isabel Allende. Not only does she write well, but she has survived her daughter's death and created a loving relationship with a man in a foreign country. All difficult.
May 22, 2014June 5-7 marks the 10th St. Martin Book Fair, and I've been invited to participate. I'm looking forward to it for a couple of reasons. First, I will be able to contribute to this worthy event, and, second, my daughter will be joining me. Third, this is my mother's birth place, and it's going to be fun for us to take a look at the "home country."
St. Martin, here we come!
April 29, 2013The spectacularly beautiful island of Anguilla is the backdrop for one of the most exciting book festivals in the region. May 22 - 26 sees me there, along with Atria publisher Judith Curr, where we'll actually do some work and have fun at the same time. Counting down!
March 22, 2013Two wonderful book events are coming up, and I hope you can join me:
The Anguilla Literary Festival on the gorgeous island of Anguilla, from May 23 to 26, and
A book reading in the Winnetka, Chicago bookstore The Book Stall, on June 10. This will be a luncheon reading for the Women Writers Series.
From the Caribbean to the Windy City -- although both will be warm by then (thank goodness). See you there!
