This week, I’m emulating all those East Coast novelists who moved to California to work for Hollywood and became rich, embittered screenwriters. Except I’m not rich. Or embittered. And I’m only here until Wednesday. But I AM writing this poolside, under a big umbrella to protect me from all the…Continue

Hi, I'm a newbie here and have a question which may be silly. I've read all of Julia's Russ/Clare books and love them. I'm currently listening to them on CD and am on All Mortal Flesh right now (love the reader of this series). I suddenly realized that I do not have a good image of Russ - at all.

Because I love this series so much, I would be willing to consider any recommendations Julia has. She has gotten me into the Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny. Any other recommendations, either from Julia or from my fellow bloggers?
I know this is on Facebook, but it's sort of hidden away. Let's list our favorite scenes/moments from the books, any book as they occur to you. I'm re-reading from the beginning of the series but for now............. OWAS........"You had me at…Continue
