As the daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service officer, Elizabeth Blackwell grew up in Washington, D.C., interspersed with stints in Africa, the Middle East and Europe--pretty much always with a book in hand. She majored in history at Northwestern University (hooray! more reading!) and received her master's in journalism from Columbia University, which led to a career as an editor and writer for a number of publications that have since gone out of business (surely just a coincidence?). She now writes fiction from her home office in the Chicago suburbs, in between wrangling her three children and fighting for a parking spot at the local Target.

I probably shouldn't admit this, because it's too embarrassing. But since this is going to be my first blog post in more than a year, which already makes me look bad, why not come clean?

I've been terrible about keeping up with GoodReads.



(Whew. I'm starting to feel better already.)

I don't have a specific reason; GoodReads didn't do anything wrong. I just haven't been tracking my books here for... Read more of this blog post »
