August 22, 2019. I am working away on my novel about the famous Victorian writer which has a unique slant, and that is about it. I had a lovely time last month in San Francisco when I read from my novel MARRYING MOZART with the talented musicians of the Midsummer Mozart Festival.... and my next appearance is in NYC at a conference around the late brilliant Madeleine L'Engle who was my mentor. For further information on the November 15-17 conference, please check out Madeleine L'Engle Conference: Walking on Water Many people who worked with Madeleine or knew her well will be there, including some of her family members.
