Writing a Woman's Life

How Women's Fiction Charts Our Course

Meet Amy Sue Nathan

Things are a little rough for Izzy Lane. Still reeling from the break-up of her marriage, the newly single mom moves back to the Philadelphia home she grew up in, five-year-old Noah in tow. The transition is difficult, but with the help of her best friends—and her elderly neighbor, Mrs. Feldman—Izzy feels like she’s stepping closer to her new normal. Until her ex-husband shows up with his girlfriend Read More...

Meet Susan Shapiro - Passion Rekindled

Is it dangerous to search for an old flame you never got over? What if you find him—and he doesn't remember you? In her captivating new novel, Susan Shapiro—memoirist, novelist, humorist and writing teacher extraordinaire—explores the perils of revisiting the passion of yesteryear. Lila Penn leaves Wisconsin for graduate school in the big city, where she falls for her professor Daniel Wildman. Decades after their tangled link, she arranges Read More...

Meet Holly Robinson

In the coming months, I am going to be doing Q & A’s with a number of women’s fiction authors.  I think you’ll find their work engaging and their thoughts—on writing, life and how to balance it all—fascinating. I know I did!  First up is novelist, journalist and celebrity ghostwriter Holly Robinson. Holly is the author of several books, including The Gerbil farmer’s Daughter: A Memoir Read More...

Release Day -- For An Author

My new novel, THE HOUSE ON PRIMROSE POND, just came out from New American Library on February 2, 2016, and I’m excited, happy and proud. I am also as busy as I can possibly be because now that the book is done and has made its debut, I can’t simply bask in the warm sun of pride and satisfaction—far from it. Instead Read More...

A Piece of Cake

Choosing the professions of my fictional characters is something I look forward to every time. I try to pick something I am interested in, so I can write about it with conviction, passion and sincerity. I would not, say, write about an accountant or a mathematician; for me, math is a major irritant, like getting sand in my eye. So when it comes to math, I have to take a pass. Read More...

Falling in Love...Again

I’ve certainly explored love in several of my novels—love between men and women (and on a couple of occasions, between men and men) as well as husbands and wives, forbidden, adulterous love and the soul-shocking, bring-you-to-your-knees kind of love a parent can have for a child. But I had never written a novel that explored and unpacked the process of falling in love—until Read More...

Writing a Woman's Life | Small Goals, Big Results

Small Goals, Big Results Back in the late 1990s, before I had published my first novel, I had pocketful of literary aspirations and a heart filled with dreams. I also had two small children and a budget that precluded the hiring of a baby sitter or nanny. Although I had the idea for a novel rumbling around inside me, I despaired of having the time and emotional space in which to write it. The uninterrupted Read More...

Portrait of a (Young) Lady

Way back when I was an undergraduate at Vassar College, I majored in art history. My classes were stimulating and exciting; my teachers interested and caring. I loved my academic life and was an excellent student. Since I was happy with my studies and did not have a clear idea about what to after I graduated, I decided to keep on being a student. I applied to and was accepted by a PhD program in Read More...

Name Game

I categorize every single name I hear as better or worse than mine; I’ve been doing this pretty much my entire life. I’d say ninety-nine percent fall into the better camp but once in while, I come across a name that I actually think is worse. (More on this later.) I have to say that I come by this name honorably enough: I was born in Chadera, Israel, where if the name Read More...

Under Cover

You know the old line about not judging a book by its cover? Well, as reader and writer I can tell you that it’s a big fat lie. We all judge books by their covers, especially when confronting a veritable tidal wave of them on the shelves and tables of our local Barnes & Noble or indie bookstores. Book covers instantly convey information about the kind of book and author we’re considering. They whisper Read More...

Yona Zeldis McDonough on Writing a Woman's Life

Hello Fresh Fiction readers! My name is Yona Zeldis McDonough and I’ll be writing a new column on Women’s Fiction for the site. I plan to define, describe and discuss the term, as well as compare it to other similar terms and categories. I’ll share my pet peeves and fave raves too. I do hope you’ll enjoy the posts and keep coming back for more. And I also hope you’ll Read More...
