This was an interesting reading month for me. I read one book I didn’t think I would enjoy, but found it easy to read but not in an entertaining way, but one that kept my interest because it made me angry and sad for the women in it who were repeatedly lied to by their bosses and died because of it.

In the Writer’s House #32: Checking in, Novel Progress

Hello Friends,

So sorry for not checking in before now, but my summer has been ridiculous. I’m usually busier in the summer months than the fall or winter, but this year has been over-the-top and I am not getting to my writing which is making me cranky. Anyone relate? Continue reading
