D.D. Lorenzo D.D. Lorenzo's blog:
The question has been posed lately, "why did you take your books off the market?" The answer is that it's me, not you. You see, most authors are warned not to read their reviews on Goodreads, but I do. Most of what was said about the first published versions of my four books I agreed with, and I...

Andrew   Smith Andrew Smith's blog:
Often a place is as strong a character in a novel as any human. For example, it's impossible to imagine Bronte novels set outside of the West Yorkshire Pennines, an area now referred to as 'Bronte country.' The town of Rye in E. F. Benson's books is easily as vivid as his irrepressible characters... Read more of this blog post »

My daughter just turned 7 months old. Watching her grow up has been fascinating, and when I FaceTime her on the road, she reaches out now, trying to touch my face. It melts me every single time.
