Why Can't Strong Women Passionately Love Men?
I'm Leslie Cannold, a newspaper columnist, researcher, ethicist, and vocalist. Some years ago I left my University job to finish a historical novel. The book is about Rachael, a clever and ambitious Jewish girl who yearns for more than her lot, and who happens to be Jesus's sister. It's published by Text and is now available electronically & in hard copy at all solvent bookstores (independents & Dymocks & airport newsagents - yes, Redgroup's Borders and A&R not so much). It's getting great reviews. Here, I talk about the writing, editing and publicity processes, and seek your comments on thought-bubbles and heckles that arise for me as I get my ideas for books from paddock to plate.
