Hiatus: #38Write Writing Workshops

Last week I announced awesome-blossom news (novel!), and today I’m announcing some not so awesome-blossom news. Due to current insane life pressures (mamahood, job, writing, book coming out, tightrope-walker, etc.), I’ve decided to put #38Write writing workshops on hold for a while.

I know, I know! Boo on me!

I’m just having a hard impossible time not falling off the tightrope, and I need to get a little balance back in my life. As all of you know, helping writers grow, sharing my love for culture and place, and connecting the world via story is one of my great passions, so I’ve not come to this decision lightly.

But don’t worry. I’m hoping to be back in kick-arse workshop mode soon!

In the meantime, get into writerhead as often as possible, write your bloody hearts out, and then write some more.




Big, happy news! My next novel will be published by Penguin’s Berkley Books!

Oh, so happy to share this good news!

My next novel will be published in early 2014 by Penguin’s Berkley Books!

And the title is:

(drum roll…)



Huge thanks to my kick-arse agent Barbara Poelle! And a big SMOOCH to all the friends, family, and writers around the world who support me in this writing life. Y’all rock!
