A few items of good news. THE HALF WIVES is scheduled for publication in Spring 2017. I have a new editor at HMH because my wonderful editor Jenna is leaving. I will miss Jenna, but I’m delighted to be working with Nicole. I’m starting novel #3 (or #4, or #5, depending on how one counts these things). Getting a new project off the ground = slow going. I work in the early morning, just about every morning, for an hour or two before going in to work. Sometimes I work at night. Always on weekends. How many hours depends on how inspired I feel (usually, not very), how guilty I feel (usually, very), and how happy I feel (these days, pretty darn good). The writing is the thing. The finding of the story. I will spend my whole life, whatever that is, trying to figure this out. That’s a good thing.
