Now that the latest draft of THE WITCHES OF GEE'S BEND is safely in the hands of my editor, I miraculously have time for other things I enjoy, like reading.

Currently my nightstand is full, but what's on top is WICKED by Gregory Maguire. I picked it up after reading Deb's post about the musical. And you know, it's really right up my alley what with the whole poems in women's voices project I've got going on. And once upon a time I was Glinda the good witch in the 8th Grade performance of The Wizard of Oz... so that's what I'm reading. Thanks, Deb, for the recommendation. I'm really enjoying it.

  1. Hello my friend, I am glad that your book is done and out of your hands for the moment!! I can't wait to read it when it is published!! I will have to get Wicked, I think I would like it.

    I have a little something for you at my site!!

  2. So glad that you are enjoying Wicked! I am about 100 pages into Ken Follett's, World Without End, the follow-up to The Pillars of The Earth. I might have to switch over to Wicked this week. Even though my oldest thinks that I might be "disturbed" by some of it, I think I could handle it! She likes to watch out for her Mother's sensitive psyche:)

    Big hugs and love,
