What are you reading Wednesday

Here’s what I’ve been reading: My review of The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena is over on Natasha Orme's blog, Writer, Reader, Lover of Words. Take a read, I'll wait. Natasha's blog is well worth subscribing to, it's full of inspiring helpful words to help with your writing. I also read a fantastic memoir that I'll write about properly when it launches in April 2017. Mainly I've been outside, in the first snowfall for Stockholm this winter. Did I say winter? It's still...

What are you reading Wednesday: Sedaris and Eskens

I related all the way through. His sister, Amy, calling to him sitting in the subway as she got off, "So long, David, I hope you can beat that rape charge...

What are you reading Wednesday: Just Jenna by Diane Claire Benant

Here's what I've just been reading: JUST JENNA - debut women's fiction by Diane Claire Benant. I really enjoyed JUST JENNA.

This is chick lit set largely on a ski holiday in France with a decidedly British flair to it. Think Bridget Jones' Diary and Love, Actually on a mountain top with...

New book out!

I first "met" Lisa Webb, Canadian Expat Mom through a writers' group I'm in. Her site is hilarious plus genuine. It's all heart. I asked her if I could guest post and sent her a piece about how crazy a bikini wax can get in Paris for newbies who do not speak the language and find themselves half-naked and contorted with legs over their heads for zealot beauticians to rip every last hair off...

10 Reasons to Read Moby Dick

Last Saturday (and by that I mean March 2013), I jumped onboard another of Toby Brother's awe-inspiring Literary Salons - (here in Paris) this time on Moby Dick or The Whale, by Herman Melville (published in 1851). It was 427 pages long. But in teeny-tiny font with itty-bitty footnotes. It required a halogen reading light - I dunno how 19th Century folks read it. I only received the book on Tuesday - four days before the Salon, so I...
