• Bridge Ladies

    Bridge Ladies When I set out to learn about my mother's bridge club, the Jewish octogenarians behind the matching outfits and accessories, I never expected to fall in love with them. This is the story of the ladies, their game, their gen, and the ragged path that led me back to my mother.

I Was Feeling Kind of Seasick the Crowd Called Out for More

So DCL Agency has officially moved offices. Every book I packed and unpacked told a separate story. How I met and wooed the author, or how they pursued me, how we edited the pages that became the proposal, how we sold the project (or didn’t), all the million details up to publication and then after. Every book is it own narrative of working together, all the underground behind the scenes between the lines. The highlights and blows, the shocking world of getting published and how it ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. How you have to make your fun. Memory lane littered with so many great moments of big and tiny successes. Shutes and ladders. Gratitude to all the authors who taught me so much about writing and life.

What is one thing you’ve learned?

  1. Enjoy the writing process, it may be all you get.

  2. What is one thing you’ve learned?

    We do not come with an expiration date.

  3. “What is one thing you’ve learned?”

    No answer I can give to this question would not sound dismissive and trite. As I look for the next sentence, I’m discovering that I have rapidly painted myself into a corner here.

  4. Humility and that I’m not very good at it.

  5. not one thing. Many things. But I forget what they are.
