See you in New York!

I’m homeward bound!  (And, yes, if you’re one of the people in the courtyard outside my hotel room in Scottsdale, please try to ignore the off key warbling, “Homeward boooooouuuund!”) It’s been a glorious book tour, but I am so looking forward to setting foot once more on the cracked pavement of my own hometown…

Happy Birthday to THE SUMMER COUNTRY!

I’ve spent a decade thinking about The Summer Country, including two years researching it, and one year writing it– so I can’t believe it’s finally a book!  And in stores!  And people seem to like it so far!
