Writers Chat with Bonnie ZoBell

Wow! I can't believe Aaron did this!!  I am impressed.  I'm into the number 12 myself.  It took me twelve YEARS to write a book.

Research: Two Wars, Three Romances in A Touch of Stardust

Thank you, Kat Ward, for featuring What Came Before at Hometown-Pasadena.  Loved reading your aside and your astute review of my book.

Shameless Self-Promotion, but it is Time to SHOP!!
With Christmas so close, I decided to make another push because I think WHAT CAME BEFORE is a perfect choice as Christmas gift for anyone who likes mysteries, novels of suspense, or family sagas (well, of course I do! I wrote it and want you to buy it, love...

One Writer's Awakening: Andre Dubus III
I'm at the point in Andre Dubus III's memoir Townie when he describes that moment in his life when he had his first very vivid realization he wanted to write.  No, wait, that's not what he says.  He says, he didn't want to write, he had to write. In this pa...

Worth the read!
