Happy Monday!

Floating in the St. Lawrence River near Brockville, Ontario, Canada

I know it’s hard coming back after a long holiday weekend (those of you in the U.S.) but let’s put a smile on and try to enjoy ourselves and the fact that we have jobs.  (As a former actress and writer married to a writer I can tell you that a job is not something that’s always around these parts.)  

If you’re in Los Angeles today, and haven’t figured out what you’re doing for breakfast, I’ll be speaking Literary Affairs’ Books & Breakfast at the Hotel Bel Air starting at 10:30.  It’s too late for a reservation but they are very lovely people and will, I’m sure, accomodate you.  After that, it’s back home to my desk where I’m hard at work on the sequel to Chanel Bonfire (tentatively titled “Untitled Girl”).

I know many book groups suspend meetings for the summer but if yours is still on and you are reading Chanel, I’d be happy to schedule a Skype Q & A with you.  I’ve done them with groups all over the country and all over the world and they’re great fun.  I love meeting readers, hearing about their lives and reactions to the book and answering questions.  Email me at to schedule.

Here’s To The Ladies Who Brunch!

Mother’s weekly white wine lunch.  Singer Marian Montgomery in the headscarf next to Mary Broomfield in pale yellow.

I’ll tell you all about it and much more at the Hotel Bel Air on July 8th at 10:30 if you come to Literary Affairs’ Books and Breakfast event.  Click on the link below for tickets.  It will be fun!
