About this author

Writer of books—What Would Madame Defarge Knit, What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit, and Grounded: The Seven, book 1, teacher of things, and Caster of Pods (at Craftlit.com).

She lives, teaches, and writes in Eastern PA with her bemused husband, two goofy sons, sly cat, a few frogs, and far too many devoted mosquitoes.



I just read the blurb here for "Man Made Boy" (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...) and am now gong all fan-girly. Not only does it sound like my cup to tea, but the author lives here in the DC area!

Stalker-time?

Mostly I get the sense that I'd really like to see Rosie, Izzy, Jenn, Justin, and Casey sit down for a bit with the eponymous Boy and have a chat.

Maybe I should write some fanfic? Read more of this blog post »

Chaucer's Tale by Paul Strohm

The most oddly compelling book I've read in a long while. The ending was right, if frustrating. But that's compelling too as it was impossible to conceive of a better ending for the characters caught in this troubling future.

Diane He really is super, I agree, and I'd love to meet up at some future event, especially if it also involves dancing. :) The Trailing of the Sheep here in Idaho is amazing if you're ever in our neck of the woods.

Arlen does Burns very well. We have an annual Burns night every January and Arlen recites beautifully. He keeps saying he wants to record for librivox, maybe you'll finally push him over the edge.

Heh.
I can see why you require this of him. All that, and he can cook too! You have a winnah!
He's getting rave reviews already. Someday we'll all have to be in the same place at the same time so you can teach me some of my ancestors' dances (Go Clan Macpherson!).
Maybe we'll have Arlen do some Robert Burns for us in the future?
; )

Diane Hi Heather, and thanks for the add! I love your podcast! Maybe someday I'll even be caught up. I'm looking forward to hearing the section of Dracula my husband is reading for you. I love his accent, and frequently require him to read to me while I knit/spin/cook/paint my nails. ;)
