Not at all.

I wanted to be an actress when I was younger (and trained for that, fairly seriously at American Academy of Dramatic Arts.)

And later on, there were other dreams -- but none of them involved writing short fiction. So my writing journey started when my mother died -- and I tried (unsuccessfully) to keep a journal. What emerged was fiction, and that became a passion. So I'd say that writing found me, not the other way around. (less)

The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz

Fun, fast-paced and witty mystery, although it lacks the structural inventiveness of Magpie Murders. Hooks from first page, and gallops along, with writer/Watson and ex-police/Holmes on the case. Solution is quite satisfying, too.

Appel’s a great storyteller, and his essays raise subtle ethical questions in the most “natural” way— he asks big questions (is our medical system doing harm to the elderly) as well as small questions (how does the theft of a child’s toy matter?) The ...more

Such a stylish writer. The voice in these stories is young, fierce, and out of sync with the world— but even in surreal moments, there is softness. (Kids and dogs welcome here.) My favorite: “North Of” - a young woman brings Bob Dylan to Thanksgiving ...more

the castration of a minor god by John   Compton
Rate this book
Clear rating
Spare brave poems in which a nameless gay narrator confront his “barbedwire” roots— a dead grandmother who devalues him, a father “hard to find,” a hostile religion, a “rapist with no name.” A dstinctive voice here.

Jessica Carla,
I wonder if you'd be interested in joining The Completists Club? I have a discussion thread for Muriel Spark there. You seem to be a Spark Completist ;-)
Here it is, in case of interest:
