Congrats to these LM staffers!
Amy Stockwell Mercer, Columnist (Chronic Mama) and Blog Co-Editor: “I’ve signed my book deal with Demos Health! I’ll be writing a book about women and diabetes, tentatively titled, The Diabetes Handbook for Women: Authentic Advice on Everything from Eating to Dating to Motherhood.”
Kristina Riggle, Fiction Co-Editor: “My second novel, The Life You’ve Imagined, debuts August 17th. It’s the story of three friends and a mother connected by a dying family business learning to cope with life as it is, not as they planned. It’s been recognized by indie booksellers as an IndieNext Notable pick for September. I’m very excited to send this book out in the world and see how people connect with Maeve, Anna, Cami and Amy.”
Jennifer Marie Donahue, Publicity and Marketing Manager:, “My short story, “Resting in Place”, appears at Necessary Fiction. This story examines the boundaries of family and forgiveness. The idea for this work developed from a quick ten minute writing exercise — a good example of how writing practice can help improve your craft and generate new ideas.”
