Day One

I've always thought that one of the best things about being a writer is being more or less anonymous. No one recognizes you when you are a writer and that's always been fine me. Like most writers, I'd rather observe than be observed. Okay, that's a bit of a lie.

Swedish-American children of my generation were not reared to bring attention to themselves and here I am with a website and a blog. I know, I know. It's 2014, but I can hear the ghosts of those Swedish ancestors rumbling about this. I hope to keep their rumblings at bay by never mentioning how cute my granddaughters are or what I'm eating for dinner.

Oh well, they're dead and I'm not, so enough about them. Little, Brown UK is re-issuing new editions of Glory Days, A Twist of Light and Careful Mistakes on May 15th and I have two more completed novels ready to go, so I'm going to have a website and I'm going to blog.

There. I'm certain my next post will be better than this. It almost has to be, doesn't it?
