Sorry for the delay in reply! Thanks for the kind words! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed WHEN YOU WISH!! I had so much fun writing it. I wrote a novel called AFTER a year after I wrote WHEN YOU WISH, and it's also about a teen girl, but it's a bit more serious. I actually like it a little better than WHEN YOU WISH, just because it has a bit more depth. I hope you can find that one somewhere and that you enjoy it too!(less)

Notre-Dame de Paris will rise again

As I sat yesterday in paralyzed horror watching Notre-Dame de Paris burn, I couldn’t help but think of another Notre Dame—Notre-Dame de Reims, the largest cathedral in the Champagne region of France—and the thought gave me hope. That’s because the Reims cathedral, which looks remarkably similar and was built in the same style (French Gothic) and era (Ground was broken in Paris in the year 1163, in Read more of this blog post »

Beautiful Ruins Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter by Jess Walter
The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying.

Siracusa Siracusa by Delia Ephron by Delia Ephron
New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine—Finn; his wife, Taylor; and their daughter, Snow. “From the beginning,” says Taylor, “it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together.” Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities, past and present. Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage. Set on the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea, Siracusa unfolds with the pacing of a psychological thriller and delivers an unexpected final act that none will see coming.

Kristin Harmel My new obsession with goodreads, and my absorption in the book I'm reading (CAGE OF STAR by Jacquelyn Mitchard) are preventing me from writing today! Eek!
