You’re not just eating bon-bons! | Susan May Warren

What are you reading? I asked this question to approximately 40 aspiring writers this weekend as I sat across from them at a table during our private one-on-one sessions at the Northwestern Christian Writers Conference.

Only a couple nodded. The {Read More}

Do you have a book that you’ve been wanting to write? Do you think it’s a great idea, but it’s hard convincing a publisher the same?

Yet I’ve done other things that are brave. Here are a few: Adopting kids. John and I have {Read More}
