Weekly Update

For the record, it would have been good to be a duck this week. The weather was so wet, so muggy and so humid. Instead of my usual Toms shoes, which I own in many colors, I should have bought turquoise boots for navigating the streets of the city.

On Monday night, my Long Hill Book Group had such fun talking to Wendy Walker via Skype. Twelve members all had read THE NIGHT BEFORE and pronounced it a fast-paced and quick read; they loved it! She talked to us about plotting, internet dating, writing, and juggling writing life and mom life (amusingly her boys came home as she was talking to us, and she walked her laptop up to her office while continuing the conversation). I loved the opportunity to share this chat with my fellow book club members.
