Raised in a family of book lovers, Misha's mother first encouraged her to read by offering to pay her two cents per page of Hop on Pop, by Dr. Seuss. At first Misha was happy just to be raking in the cash, but before long she traded the pennies for the riches of the written word, and since that time she’s seldom been seen without a book in her hand.

Her first novel was published in 2008; in 2010 she was a finalist for the Bronte Prize for Romantic Fiction.
Misha is married and lives, works and writes in Northern Virginia.

2019 Goodreads Reading Challenge!

Now that we are over two-thirds of the way through 2019 (and, wow, how did that happen??), I thought we could talk about the Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge.

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”
George Bernard Shaw
