If I'm stuck, I usually go back and reread the work up to that point; begin making edits to that, which, in turn, loosens up the block and I can move forward.(less)

Having people say nice things to me about what I've written. Maybe the single best thing is having readers contact me, letting me know that my work has meant something to them. That's why sites like Goodreads are so wonderful for writers. They bring our readers right to our metaphorical door.(less)

This book really creeps up on you. Very suspenseful, as promised. Morag Joss clearly knows her way around a psycho-thriller. Not a genre I normally gravitate to, but the characters in this surprising book are some of the most memorable I've encounter...more

Loved this wild romp as much for the inner workings of Chet's canine brain as for the travelogue around one of my favorite parts of the country. Bernie and Chet are my new favorite duo. Woof!

Best Kingsolver book ever, and all of her books are wonderful. Flight Behavior is the kind of book that cries out to be a fixture of the literary canon. Read it.
