Along with visiting friends and family, I also spent some time working with my mom, Judy Truelove, on her book. Her writing has been published in Northern Light, Room, Branching Out, CV2, The Antigonish Review, PRISM international and Event. She also edited the first four drafts of the Robinson biography, and more or less taught me to write. She's currently working on a biography of E.M. Delafield, the celebrated English author. While Delafield's work is well known and retains its relatability today (it has been suggested that Bridget Jones is simply an updated version of the unnamed heroine of Delafield's Provincial Lady novels), my mom has uncovered a wealth of unpublished material about her personal life and the tumultuous world in which she wrote her most famous novels. It's a great story, and I really enjoyed batting ideas back and forth about how it might be told.
And, a lot of people have been asking what my next book will be. There are a few ideas floating around...stay tuned.
