What is your favorite writing saying?

"Now, practically even better news than that of short assignments is the idea of shitty first drafts. All good writers write them. This is how they end up with good second drafts and terrific third drafts." - Anne Lamott, BIRD BY BIRD

What is your favorite book on writing?

Too many favorites to count! WRITE AWAY by Elizabeth George is excellent. I like the practicality of PUTTING YOUR PASSION INTO PRINT. And I find THE SCENE BOOK: A PRIMER FOR THE FICTION WRITER by Sandra Scofield so useful.

What do you write?

I write fiction mostly now. I'm in the midst of a first draft of a novel, and I also write short stories.

What do you read?

I love American, Progressive-era fiction. Realism and naturalism resonate with me. I also read American women writers from the turn of the 20th C through now. I also love pop culture and silly periodicals like Entertainment Weekly and Vanity Fair.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

My husband, daughter, and I moved to Philadelphia from California in September 2007, and I'm eager to meet fellow locals who share my love of reading and writing. I write fiction.
