I hope the Netflix people are reading this. The rights have been optioned by Brownstone Productions, which is Elizabeth Banks' production company. There are two very talented women screenwriters attached to the project. They're working out their idea for a series now, and reading the sequel, LADY COP MAKES TROUBLE, to see where it might go next. Then, with any luck, they'll pitch it to a network and get a green light to start working! Fingers crossed!(less)

Are You Writing a Book?

Hi everybody!

I'm teaching writing classes on Skillshare this year! The first two classes are live now, and I'm about to post the third one. If you're a writer or an aspiring writer, I hope you'll head over there and take a look.

Also--I'd love to know what you're struggling with, what your own personal roadblocks are--so that I can address them in a future class.

It's been a lot of fun for me to e Read more of this blog post »

“But gardening is none of that, really. Strip away the gadgets and the techniques, the books and the magazines and the soil test kits, and what you're left with, at the end of the day, is this: a stretch of freshly turned dirt, a handful of seeds scratched into the surface, and a marker to remember where they went. It is at the same time an incredibly brave and an incredibly simple thing to do, entrusting your seeds to the earth and waiting for them to rise up out of the ground to meet you.”
Amy Stewart, From the Ground Up: The Story of a First Garden

“People here had redwood trees in their backyards. You were never far from the infinite.”
Amy Stewart, The Last Bookstore In America

“The male doesn't eat - it doesn't even have a mouth or an anus - so it does nothing but mate until death.”
Amy Stewart, Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon's Army and Other Diabolical Insects
