These are the three guys who have been keeping me company this week while I've languished in bed with the flu. They've been my inspiration to keep writing (even though I feel like crap) but now it's time to take a major break and enjoy the holidays.
My son, Dan, is coming home from college today with his lovely girlfriend, Mami (pronounced mommy, which, as you can imagine, makes things a little confusing), and pretty soon my parents will arrive from NY! I haven't bought one gift yet, nor do I have a tree, but I have faith that I can pull it together.
Great news! My dear friend, Varian Johnson, has a new book out! MY LIFE AS A RHOMBUS just hit the shelves. The novel is hip, tender and funny with a great cast of characters, and the most amazing thing is Varian's ability to capture a teenage girl's voice. It's pitch perfect. It's a great book. Congratulations Varian!
