I love talking with readers about their reactions to and insights into my characters and story! If you have a question about my novel or me, please email me at: email@example.com. I welcome the opportunity to take part in your book club discussion of In the Shadow of 10,000 Hills — in-person if you live in/near Seattle or via Skype. Click here for a reader’s guide with thought-provoking questions.I can also speak about:
- My experiences as a 45-year-old Jewish woman who lost relatives in the Holocaust, tracing the steps of the genocide in Rwanda to connect more deeply with my own history. Read more about this: Why I Wrote This Novel.
- The creative process of moving from journalism, interviewing other people about their passions, to writing fiction and following my own passion.
- How to overcome the many daily obstacles that keep you from your writing practice. (I spent 11 years writing this novel, so I am well-versed in the art of persistence!)
- I can also lead a discussion/writing workshop on channeling grief and depression into creativity. Read more about this: Channeling Depression into Creativity, Spirituality & Health Magazine.
