I always have more books on my list than I can possibly read. That's part of the fun of it!

I'm a David Sedaris fan, so I'm definitely looking forward to his newest collection, Theft by Finding.

In fiction, I've got Courtney Sullivan's book Saints for All Occasions on my list. I've read several of her novels and loved them.

How about you?

Commuting by subway gives me the opportunity to review what I’ve written. I make my notes and edits by hand. Later that night I transcribe any notes. While this process may sound disjointed, it works for me because I like being in touch with my WIP in some way throughout the day.

The most important thing I can tell you about inspiration is my furry muse. The best thing about him is that I never have to wait for him to visit. He’s always there, waiting patiently, sometimes dreaming, sometimes staring, but never demanding.(less)

Beartown by Fredrik Backman

The Lost Letter by Jillian Cantor
"This is definitely my favorite book by Jillian Cantor, who seems a natural at her first dual-narrative novel. Taking place in 1938 Austria and in 1990s Los Angeles, this book has a little bit of everything: a mystery, a father-daughter relationshi..." Read more of this review »
