I recently wrote a guest blog for Her Circle Enzine on coming to terms with the necessary historical research for my novel-in-progress, The Happensack. Included are some of my favorite non-boring research tools (hooray for the Sears catalog) for writers looking into a specific year in the past.
In response to some questions I’ve gotten about the reading lists mentioned at the end of The Borrower, I decided to post my recommended reading for LGBT teens as a video for the It Gets Better Project. Click through here to watch the video on You Tube, and please comment with your own recommendations!
A lovely review of The Borrower and a brief conversation with me are up on the Wall Street Journal‘s Speakeasy (their arts and entertainment blog). As a side note, I love that Rupert Murdoch has now inadvertently paid twice to publicize my rather liberal novel.
