Are you a rebel author like me?
Building a conversation with writers, wannabes, writers who don't believe they're writers, + people who want to hear about the writing journey & read good books
I love the idea of talking about writing and books with people who love them, too.
When you sit at a desk in your living room every day, alone and in the quiet of your beautiful but echoing home, it’s hard to believe that life is about connections, the little moments, the human-to-human interactions. But I know that to be true, which is why I’m writing this newsletter, to talk to YOU.

I was a journalist in New York, Washington, D.C., and then Detroit, and I did really well at writing stories and getting paid for it.
But they weren’t MY stories.
And then, when the economy tanked and I got divorced and I had three little kids to feed and a musician-ex-husband (do the math), I needed a steady source of income so I wouldn’t lose the house. So I created Your People LLC, a marketing and public relations company. And that did really well.
