I’m very pleased this morning to discover Janice Kennedy‘s article in the Ottawa Citizen, “Heroine of a Golden Age.” I’m a long way from Ottawa — I’m in San Miguel de Allende, enjoying a sunny morning — yet through the wonders of the internet I learn of this article the morning it comes out. It describes, accurately and well, the long and difficult process of writing Mistress of the Sun.

The days before a novel comes out is a nervous time for an author: there will be reviews, articles, interviews. Who knows what to expect? So it’s a pleasure to launch with an article such as this one. Thank you, Janice Kennedy!
