I attended the SMA…"
"I did pick a word for this year! It's COMPLETION....and not just of my book (a journalistic memoir about my recovery from a mid-life loss by working in the Middle East with Iraqi refugees), but of this cycle in my life. I've…"
"I suspect I'm like most SheWriters: I write because I have a story to tell. It's a story I WANT to tell in whatever way I can: by writing a book, by speaking to audiences, by being interviewed, by enthralling (well, I…"
