Must Read Fiction says Busara Road is a must-read!
The wonderful “Must Read Fiction,” a website and community of passionate readers hosted by the equally wonderful Erin Popelka, has featured me in an author interview.
In the interview I talk a bit about my new novel, Busara Road, and I tell some stories about the long and fraught process of bringing it to life. Erin even gets me to reveal my troubadour past playing cello and juggling on the streets of 1980s San Francisco!
Check out the interview – and watch me struggle to draw connections between juggling and novel-writing.
Many thanks to all who braved storm threats

family for making me feel so welcome!
