Okay, I have a question: When did Fitbit’s online social network turn into Match.com?

Seriously.

I’ve been a member of the social media section on Fitbit’s app for a little over a year now, and what I’ve noticed is that every week, at least 20 men send me a friend request, and if I click “Accept,”... Read more of this blog post »

I should be working, but I started reading this gem of a book by @gail_bowen1990 and I love it. It’s so personal and smart and moves at a pace that makes it hard to stop reading. This is a hands on guide to writing mystery, and yet it’s also a beautiful book about a writer’s life. #writersofinsta...

I stop short of saying I was bullied, but the fact that I still remember how they made me feel 25 years later tells me that this is a story that need...

Sometimes, downright awful. Heartbreaking. Soul-shaking. One minute I’m determined to trust God. In the next, I feel myself slipping.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.

Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
