My Favorite Things in 2014: “My Letter to Fear” was Published

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, I’m sure you could have guessed this one. I was still writing and editing “My Letter to Fear: Essays on Life, Love and the Search for Prince Charming” through 2013, so the notion of it actually being published and available to readers in early 2014 seemed like a dream (or […]
