As I’m finishing up a novel by Jenny Milchman it occurs to me that over the past few years I’ve met some incredible writers. I’m so thankful to have come into their orbit and to be inspired and awed by them. So, I thought I’d share them with you. Sound good?
Let’s begin with Jenny. She’s currently traveling the earth with her husband and two young children to promote her newest book, RUIN FALLS (my current read). She’s doing something with a tour like that that will make her a legend. Really. She graciously allowed that I could do a guest blog back in March and you can see it here http://www.jennymilchman.com/blog/2014/03/17/made-it-moment-susan-sundwall/
Betsy Bitner writes for the Times Union. She’s articulate, funny, and has the ability to write to the core of our humanness, a rare gift. Her stories appear at Untreed Reads in THE KILLER WORE CRANBERRY anthology series. Her entertaining blog, Lost in the Adirondacks, can be found here http://www.lostintheadirondacks.com
Robert Knightly writes excellent police procedurals. I loved BODIES IN WINTER. He’s got the inside scoop on crime seeing as how he’s a former NYC cop and all. The stories he could tell! Catch him and some other interesting writers on his blog Crime Writers Chronicle here http://crimewriters.blogspot.com
Karen Lange is a home schooling mom who wrote about it in HOMESCHOOL CO-OPS 101. I participated in a blog tour for her book, my first one ever! I was pleased to be able to help her get it off the ground. A boon to her fellow writers as wsell and her blog can be found here http://karenelange.blogspot.com
Rhonda Schrock is a writer who’s just a hair’s breadth from syndication. Feel it in my bones. Not only does she share her faith and her family on her blog, she’s another writer who tickles your funny bone. To the point of needing a box of tissues beside you as you read. She has a regular column in The Goshen News and her blog is here http://www.rhondaschrock.com/rhondas_blog/
Barb Goffman is a short story writer and a dynamo at that. It was my privilege to see her accept the Macavity Award at Bouchercon last fall for her stunning short story, THE LORD IS MY SHAMUS. She’s one of my Facebook buds. Barb’s website can be found here http://www.barbgoffman.com/
Poke around in these writers blogs. There’s good stuff in all of them. I’m so honored to know these talented people. They delight, inform and humble me. And have I said how much I appreciate every one of you who reads my blog? No? Well here ya go . . .
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the top of my head and the tips of my toes. You are wonderful!
