My first book review has been posted! It's thrilling to read another writer's thoughts on my novel-in-stories, and I'm especially happy that the first reviewer was Isabel Huggan.
Isabel was my mentor at the Humber School for Writers in 2012. She worked with me on some of the stories in the book and got to know the characters. She likened reading the book to reconnecting with old friends. What a nice compliment to hear that she remembered the characters and felt warmly toward them (even if she wouldn't exactly want to be Debbie's friend).
In the mentorship, Isabel and I worked on individual stories, focusing on that character's arc. This was the first time she saw the larger plot and Debbie's full journey. She told me that she loved the stories, and I'm so pleased that she enjoyed reading my book.
