All books that have been passed on to me and recommended by the loner. So, my hit list for this summer currently includes Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Leaving Time by Jodie Picoult, Shanghai Girls by Lisa See and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

My editor said my new book Keeping Claudia has strong Pride and Prejudice feel to it. Though I've seen the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley, I'm embarrassed to admit, I've never read the book!(less)

“Focusing on what I want, and what I need to do to get it, seems like such a small change in mindset, but it’s made a huge difference. I feel almost … invincible.
~ Toby Faye”
Suzanne McKenna Link, Saving Toby

“If you give a writer a line, they'll take a paragraph…”
Suzanne McKenna Link

“I’d waited for this opportunity with Claudia for a long time—ever since elementary school when I tried to impress her on the monkey bars and woo her with my crayon drawings. But I couldn’t have been with her any sooner. You can’t expect someone to love a shadow.”
Suzanne McKenna Link, Keeping Claudia

“The best books come from someplace deep inside.... Become emotionally involved. If you don't care about your characters, your readers won't either.”
Judy Blume

“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.”
Steve Wozniak

“Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.”
Rob Reiner

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories
