I have a new website to go along with my novel release - The River's Memory - coming in July. It has a blog and I'm going to give posting from there a try. Still, after six years and five hundred and seventy two posts here, I'm going to cling... Continue reading

Yikes - the book is getting read. This is unsettling.

Here's the word onThe River's Memory. Many review copies are out to reviewers. The meeting with the website designer went quite well. I've written a decent draft of the book group guide which meant I was pretty much interviewing my own dang self which was odd. And so far I... Continue reading

The advanced readers copies of The River's Memory are scattered out into the world, and now (my nerves are wracked) we wait for those first reviews. In the meantime, here's a preview of the acknowledgements page. "The generosity of strangers—that's what any writer who does research knows about. My generous... Continue reading

Shelley will start signing books at six and at seven talk to us about her book and her life as a writer. If you remember from Shelley's pieces on NPR, she's a fine, smart, reflective, and funny speaker. So join me at the Santa Fe College's Fine Arts Hall on... Continue reading

Lucy Corin's book of short stories has added to my sentence collection. Here are a couple. "At night he walked through the fanciest part of the neighborhood: blinds crossing vast windows, enormous foyers, each with one shining fixture suspended like the only planet in the universe of one house after...

Right now, if this post posted when I scheduled it to, my gal and I are camping in the Everglades. We have no internet. We have no phone service. No Word for me, no Garage Band app for her - it's just yellow pads and a guitar. I'm thinking we're... Continue reading

In Nicola Griffith's Hild there's a scene where two sisters in seventh century Britain are making butter. It was perfect. It made me stop reading and whoop out loud, startling the dog. Griffith ties the sensory beauty and details of scene (That bare arm holding back the cream!) to the... Continue reading

Lars Andersen and his Adventure Outpost are known for the expert guiding of kayak trips to our Florida springs and marshes and creeks. He's known for his deep knowledge of the natural world. He's known for his gentle way of teaching. Lars is not as well known for his writing.... Continue reading

Joan and I made changes until the very last moment, but the PDF of the ARC is off to the printer now. Soon we'll be holding the physical book, with that fresh ink smell, in our hands. Then it's on to the next phase of things - blurbs, pre-publication reviews,... Continue reading

Here's my list, in no particular order, of books I've read recently with kick-ass writing or compelling subjects or twisty wonderful plots or sometimes all three. Love, an Index by Rebecca Lindenberg The Round House by Louise Erdrich The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson Back East by Michele... Continue reading

My publisher and I have been discussing this. In these times of e-readers and posts on the internet when does that celebratory moment happen? The old-fashioned working definition is that a manuscript becomes a book when it's bound, so that's what we're going with. Which means, if you count the... Continue reading

Angie Chuang's memoir, The Four Words for Home, won the Willow Press Literature Award and will be published this spring.

I collect sentences. Here's my newest one. It's from Elizabeth Bowen's The Last September. "The idea seemed grateful: she thought of her room with the high ceiling, the foreign touch to the cheeks of afternoon pillows, the delicious crime of crossing one's stockinged ankles over the rucked-back quilt and the...

The line-edited version of my novel manuscript is back, and now I'm a neurotic, whining mess. I mean, I have to read the whole shebang and approve or argue against the corrections (For instance, it seems that even though my mother was English, I don't get to use "towards" rather... Continue reading

I met Maggie Hill at Yaddo the summer of 2012. Right away, we liked each other. She gave me a FDNY cap. We stayed in touch. She lives in Rockaway Beach. The last e-mail I got from her for a very long time said "My house is battened down, and... Continue reading
