When the nominees for the National Book Award were announced, I did a victory dance. Why? Because right at the top of the list is my friend Debby Dahl Ewardson’s My Name Is Not Easy (Marshall Cavendish). Several years ago (one home, three computers past), I read a very early draft of the novel. I can’t wait to get a hold of the finished product.
I’d like to encourage all of you to pick up Debby’s book as soon as you have the chance. She’s a top notch author with plenty to say.
I’ll have a second post on the National Book Award tomorrow.
