I have a plot laid out for a book 3 and possibly even 4, but have shifted my focus to more current issues in women's history, as it seems that's what the market is after. I'd love to finish out the series, though!(less)

The only bit of it I've never been able to argue with is that in order to learn the craft of writing, you must write. A lot. Often. Daily if you can. Find the medium that works for you--laptop, notepad and fountain pen, iPhone, marble slab and chisel--what have you, and keep it with you always. Even if you can only work for 10 minutes some days, it's all forward momentum, which is absolutely key to success. (less)

“Even in 2018, women’s rights are still far from finished business. Compared to other countries in the Western world, the United States is behind the times in understanding that women’s rights truly are human rights.”
