Lisa Hi Emily,

I noticed that you added "Getting into Character." Where did you hear about this book? I am half way through and I love it so far. I have started to use the technique she describes to supplement what I have learned from Holly. It's working nicely. I hope you enjoy the book as well. Take care! :)
