BOOK REVIEW: This Life I Live by Rory Feek

I didn't want to read this book.  I first heard about it when I came across an article in a magazine--some Woman's Day-y type of publication, I think. I read some of the article, thought, "Oh, this is a sad story," and put it down. Well, it found me again. Have you ever noticed how … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: This Life I Live by Rory Feek

BOOK REVIEW: This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

I have heard of Ann Patchett before, of course, but I had never read any of her work. Full disclosure: I did try to read Bel Canto once. I have no idea why I didn’t actually finish it. Or start it. I forget. Anyway, my friend and yoga teacher, Kristen, mentioned a book casually in … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

BOOK REVIEW: The Vineyards of Allegretti by Jennifer Davies

I loved this story about Vivian and Michael, who have known each other most of their lives, but have been apart for a period of time and as the book opens, they are just coming back together. They love each other, but have not admitted this to each other. Heck, they have barely admitted it … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Vineyards of Allegretti by Jennifer Davies

Taping an interview for TV

It was my great pleasure and good fortune to be invited to be on Write Now with Gayle Heney.  I met Gayle at the New England Authors Expo last summer. After the taping date was confirmed, a helpful email arrived with instructions for how to get there, what to wear, where to park... But back … Continue reading Taping an interview for TV

BOOK REVIEW: The Alchemist’s Daughter by Mary Lawrence

I just finished reading The Alchemist's Daughter by Mary Lawrence. All I can say is, YAY! Mary's book is a work of historical fiction, so if you're into that, you'll love it. Not a historical fiction fan? Don't limit yourself! Read it anyway. You'll still love it! Right from the beginning, you will feel like you're … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Alchemist’s Daughter by Mary Lawrence

BOOK REVIEW: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

I read this book at the recommendation of a young lady, Angie, who visited my author table at the Kennebunk Community Market one Saturday. She told me that Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon was her favorite book. This book says it's recommended for readers aged 12-17, but I object to narrowing the audience for this book. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
