  1. Hi Marisa, Just finished Karr’s Lit too. She and Jeanette Walls stand out in the field. You’re in there too. You’ve made great strides and I hope Stepping into the Water gets the publicity it deserves. Though Free To Bloom is touted as fiction, you know that it’s strongly based in truth, and the comments I’m getting are ‘how brave and open I am”. We have to write what flows out of us. Keep in touch. Hugs, Jill


  2. Thanks for the follow, Marisa. I’ll try to keep things interesting.

    Best wishes,

    Nick Fox
