Raised in a family of book lovers, Misha's mother first encouraged her to read by offering to pay her two cents per page of Hop on Pop, by Dr. Seuss. At first Misha was happy just to be raking in the cash, but before long she traded the pennies for the riches of the written word, and since that time she’s seldom been seen without a book in her hand.

Her first novel was published in 2008; in 2010 she was a finalist for the Bronte Prize for Romantic Fiction.
Misha is married and lives, works and writes in Northern Virginia.

This is a true story, which I’m sharing in honor of all the dads who work so hard, and love so much.


It was late on a June evening, but the sky was still light. I was sitting with a writing chum outside of Starbucks, sipping decaf and talking over the triumphs and trials of the writing life. A car pulled into the parking lot – or, for proper dramatic effect, I should say that it roared in, bec...

Dreams from Bunker Hill by John Fante
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a terrible thing for a writer to admit, but I honestly have no words to describe how much I love John Fante. Dreams from Bunker Hill is simultaneously funny, tragic and just plain fascinating. Can't wait to read it again!

Zora Neale Hurston
“It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.”
Zora Neale Hurston

George Bernard Shaw
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”
George Bernard Shaw
