Ask a New Author on Book Divas!

I am so excited to announce that during the first six months of 2013, I will be participating in the Book Divas' Ask a New Author column, with fellow Ashland Creek Press authors Jean Ryan and Mindy Mejia


This means that for the next six months, Mindy, Jean and I will be answering questions from readers and writers about our experiences writing, editing, and publishing. If you or someone you know has a question, you can email them to

Here’s a little about Mindy and Jean:

Mindy Mejia “is simply a beautiful writer,” writes Mary Ann Grossmann of theTwin Cities Pioneer Press. Mindy’s novel, The Dragon Keeper, tells the story of the zookeeper of a Komodo dragon and a discovery that changes the scientific world forever, highlighting the perils of captivity and the astonishing ways in which animals evolve.

Jean Ryan‘s debut story collection, Survival Skills: Stories, is forthcoming in April. Jean writes of beauty and aging, and of love won and lost, with characters enveloped in the mysteries of the natural world and the animal kingdom. ”This book will bring you closer to the things that are important in life” (Lori Ostlund, author of The Bigness of the World).
