Setting up house

I'm making a quick appearance here as I am new to blogspot and am here to refer you to my other blog at Beryl at Gather.com until I can figure out what I'm doing. I arrived here because I am a guest blogger on Patry Francis' (author of The Liar's Diary) Simply Wait blogspot.

I have been a columnist for the Cook County News Herald for the past 10 years and write frequently for regional and national magazines. My memoir, The Scent of God, was published in hardcover by Counterpoint NY in 2006 and in paperback this year of 2007. The Minneapolis Star Tribune named me "Best of 2006 Minnesota Authors," and The Scent of God was a “Notable” Book Sense selection for April 2006. It has also been nominated by Booksellers for a Midwest Booksellers Book Award.
