My Grade 6 teacher.

The small-town newspaper editor who gave me my first "real" writing job, back when I was in high school.

And my Grandma Bolton, who believed in my dream of becoming a writer, right from day one.

Behave by Andromeda Romano-Lax
"Fans of Masters of Sex will appreciate this fictional exploration of Dr. John Watson and his research that was revered by so many to not spoil children based on his research that he developed during his time at Johns Hopkins. Disturbingly, tests a..." Read more of this review »

A fun and quirky book. A study in psychological decline as evidenced through online reviews. (Yep. I loved the premise, too.)
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
"This is a tough book to love because the stories of people who have been unjustly imprisoned are so grim, but it's so important to know their stories and Stevenson tells them well, with compassion and clarity. His work with the Equal Justice Initi..." Read more of this review »

A thought-provoking and highly personal look at the way alcohol is being marketed to women -- and how we're responding to those oh-so-seductive pitches.

Well, that was a thoroughly addictive read.... And talk about a well-crafted debut novel. The book is smart and well-written and the novel features an intriguing cast of main and supporting characters. Highly recommended.

A fast-paced thriller that keeps you reading. I could quibble with a few of the story details if I wanted to (the feminist part of my brain didn't love the mean girl and/or "jealous female" plot elements), but I'm not going to bother. The book doesn' ...more
