The Family Business

We were all laughing after receiving my son's SAT results. There's a new Writing section, and that was his highest score. He hates to write, so the score was viewed with considerable amusement in my house.

My mother's reaction was "Well, of course--he can't help it."

My youngest sister is a published author of sci fi and fantasy fiction, and had a long career as an editor in NY before finally getting that 4-book contract that enabled her to put her suits in the closet and write fulltime. She just got a 2-book contract for a fantasy series involving magic and wine. My middle sister also writes for hire, is a Development officer and Grantswriter in NY. My mother was a Public Relations director, wrote fiction on the side, and is now beginning to publish fiction again. Her brother recently retired as the Editor-in-chief of the Book of the Month Club, and now writes non-fiction works on history.

So, here's some links to my family's business. Enjoy. And if genre is your thing, buy a book or two and keep my sister in catfood.

Anne:

Very cool! I'll have to pick up one of your sister's books for my daughter, she loves fantasy fiction.

Amy:

Anne, I don't know your daugher's age, but Laura's Retriever series runs into an R rating by the third book. She also has a Merlin-themed series for young teens.

Anne:

Thanks Amy! The daughter I had in mind is 18 - she loves what she and her girlfriend call historical "bodice rippers" so no problem on the R rating! But my younger daughter is 12 so she might enjoy the Merlin series.
