After graduating, she ran an underground music zine before moving back to Florida and focusing her attention on her fiction writing.

On this fine Friday, with bagel in hand, I logged into my computer to get an early start on the workday. (No seriously, there was ZERO traffic this... Read more of this blog post »

I rather enjoyed this one. I pushed aside a lot of critical reservations that I normally have when taking on a book like this and just allowed myself to get lost in it while on a long flight. I liked both characters and I liked the relationship that...more

This book was a quick, mostly fun read. It got bogged down a bit for me with more technical details at time instead of story, and all the voices read the same even though the people being interviewed were from all over the world, but it's tough to ta...more
