A Visit from Another Writer

I had a nice visit yesterday from Leah Weiss, the author of the very popular If the Creek Don't Rise and the forthcoming All the Little Hopes.  Leah was in my class at Wildacres a few years ago when she was at work on Hopes.

We chatted about the difficulties of bringing out a book during a pandemic and the necessity of promoting that book, as well as the need to balance the rest of one's life with with the demands of writing.  

It felt good to talk with someone in the writing game--it's been over a year of no conferences or in-person events with other writers. I forget how energizing that sort of interaction can be.

Leah's books are delightful explorations of compelling characters in difficult situations.  I was privileged to read an advance copy of All the Little Hopes and feel sure it will find a wide audience
