So cool to open up the weekend edition of The Baltimore Sun and see this profile on my publishing three books this year! Thanks to Mary McCauley for writing the piece and also moderating a great Q&A between me and Jessica Blau at the Johns Hopkins Barnes & Noble. Her questions were original and thought-provoking and enabled an in-depth, accessible discussion on craft. (And also thanks to writer Betsy Boyd for the pic!)
