Just to let you know that I’ve finished the first draft of my fourth novel, Rise Up Sister, and am taking a break  to visit my family in Ohio. But of course I can never put down my notebook for long… I’ll  also be attending a one day workshop “How to Get the Best Out of Your Writing Life” put on by the Antioch Writer’s Workshop at the University of Dayton. After so many years of living in the Caribbean where I’m still considered an outsider, it’s always interesting to go back “home” where I now feel like a refugee from outer space. But it’s the contrast between the two worlds that keeps me in writing material. Hey! I’ll keep you posted!
