As this is a placeholder for the moment I won’t say too much, but watch this space. There is fun to come. I am an avid reader, and intend there to be book review, discussions and even a bit of my own writing. Oh, I am also an author. My first novel The Weeping Empress came out in Dec. of 2011. You’ll hear more about it, and the wild journey that is marketing a recent publication. I have a husband, two daughters and an imaginary dog who will likely be mentioned on occasion. I am a graduate student at The University of Manchester, so no doubt I’ll loose my rag every now and then – especially near deadlines. There is just so much to post about.
