Last Friday, I posted a Q&A interview with author, Therese Walsh on her novel, The Last Will of Moira Leahy, and on her writing process. She offered great insight on setting, research, and three keys to succeeding as a writer. If you missed the interview, you can still read it here.
Thank you to everyone who left comments. I hope, if you didn’t know of Walsh’s work already, you discovered another great author to watch. You can keep up to date with Therese Walsh by bookmarking her website and following her on Twitter. You’ll also find more great articles from her on Writer Unboxed.
I asked my son this morning to help me choose a winner. He shuffled the pieces of paper with the names of all who wanted to be included in the contest, closed his eyes, and pulled from the pile: rr smythe.
