Today is the March for Science! (It's also very appropriately Earth Day of which I'm a big fan.) In honor of all things science-y, I've compiled a list of the favorite books of some of my favorite scientists! These are books these scientists have said are some of their favorites! (Yay scientists and science and books!)
I didn't write this blog because I'm great at making time to read. I am actually terrible at it. Lucky for me, there are many articles and blogs on how to be a better reader and I decided to comb through these for the best advice.
It's Spring Break and we've got a road trip planned. That's a perfect opportunity to create a road trip book "mix tape".
When you're an author working on your next book or books (in my case a sequel to The Travelers, a children's book relating to a unicorn, a ghost story, a spec fic/scifi book) and also a mom, wife, resistor, sometimes bookstagrammer and daily blogger with a relatively demanding day job as a medical editor, finding time to read can be hard.
April is such an awesome month, I can almost barely stand it. First, it's National Poetry Month. April also means spring and flowers and warm weather. And, today, April 2, is International Children's Book Day. Just another reason to love April.
Women's History Month is winding down - only 2 more days. 😦 And while that doesn't mean we can't continue to talk about women (past and present) who have helped shape the world, it does mean that today's blog is fitting as we near the end of this month. It's all about why my daughter loves Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But first....
Given the rolling back of climate change regulations in the US, which is based not on data or reality or science, but rather on the influence of greedy oil and coal mega-companies and their government lackeys, I thought a blog discussing writers who have exposed the consequences of human ignorance, selfishness and arrogance on the world climate through fiction was appropriate today.
I took an insane trip recently where I left Washington, DC at 6 am and flew to LA (a 4+ hour flight) and then took a flight home that same day. Other than realizing that was not one of the smartest decisions I ever made since it left me exhausted and loopy, I did get an excellent amount of writing and reading time in! It made me think of the best places to read and write. Here are my favorites.
