Writers Wanted

Guest post for the Austin Mystery Writers (September 2016)

I feel awkward telling my readers that growing up I never had an inclination toward becoming a writer. Too often I’ve heard of authors writing since they were children. Jane Austen is known to have flexed her creative muscle as a teenager, writing sentimental stories to entertain her family and Virginia Woolf produced magazines about family Read more of this blog post »

Shadow Garden by Alexandra Burt
"Wow. Amazing imagination and creativity.

The great thing about a psychological story is that it takes you quite a while to actually realize that your mind is being manipulated along with the story.

You never really know who is telling " Read more of this review »

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I've always loved strong women, which is lucky for me because once you're over about twenty-five there is no other kind. Women blow my mind. The stuff that routinely gets done to them would make most men curl up and die, but women turn to steel and keep on coming. Any man who claims he's not into strong women is fooling himself mindless; he's into strong women who know how to pout prettily and put on baby voices, and who will end up keeping his balls in her makeup bags.”
Tana French, Faithful Place
