    I’m sitting in the cafe at the ESCO Barnes & Noble and I think they’re going to ask me to leave: I can’t control this ridiculous laughter that is burbling out of me as I’m reading The Writing Class. Thanks. Yesterday I was walking 5 unhappy miles and lessened the agony of the trek by beginning a list of “Words That Do What They Say.” I started with FAVORITE.

    Glad you’re enjoying it! If you can give me more Words That Do What They Say, I’d be happy to start a list here. I’m just not yet sure what they are…

    I picked up a copy of “The writing class” to entertain me on a flight, and I haven’t been able to concentrate on anything else until I had read it. I no sooner did so, than I had to download an audio version of “Amy falls down” so that I can continue to engage with the lives of such entertaining characters. I shall miss them when I reach the end of this book.

    I just finished “Amy Falls Down”, and it kept me wondering what was going to happen next to Amy Gallup. I could relate to her character because I don’t suffer fools lightly either, and find the uprising of popularity of e-books vs paper quite sad, to be honest. Thank you for writing such a full-bodied and robust character, and for using such rich vocabulary and not talking down to me (the reader). Now I need to sink my teeth into your other books.

    I am leading my book club on discussion questions tomorrow, 6/28, regarding Amy Falls Down. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and want to get my friends involved in a wonderful discussion.

    Can you provide book club discussion questions? Thank you.

    I’m on page 55 of “Amy Falls Down” and I just had to find out about you and if you’ve written more books. I’m so glad that you have. I get very grouchy when I don’t have a good book to read. ( a 65-year-old fan from Pennsylvania)

    Hi Jincy, I’m gonna come off like a real fanboy here, but a friend sent me a copy Jenny and the Jaws of Life and I read it and if you were to ask me me right now who is my favorite author and tell me I only had 5 seconds to answer, I’d probably blurt out your name. You deserve to be rich and famous and involved in a juicy scandal from time to time.
