It takes hard work -- but it is great to know that DREAMS CAN COME TRUE...

When I started Joy on Paper there were three names on my "Dream an Impossible Dream Wish List" - Mary Higgins Clark, Nelson DeMille and Lee Child. 

I am grateful to Mary Higgins Clark who has been a guest three times. She has been generous with her time and her good advice to new writers. 

It was a thrill to talk to Nelson DeMille,  whose character, John Corey, has always felt like a friend. 

What can I say about Lee Child? I always enjoy talking to someone from England. He is fun and fascinating,. It was so great to talk to him about Jack Reacher -- a character beloved by so many million readers.

In the Nevada-set novel, which Riverhead called “daring” and “psychologically intense,” the central character, Cale, must deal with what’s happening “with the protective, ailing grandfather who raised her, and with her Mexican-American best friend Penny, who disappears after a terrifying moment of violence shatters their world.” Agent Joy Harris represented Tomar in the deal."
