My novel in progress (under the pen name Elizabeth Harris) is ‘The Bakery Assistant’. It’s the story of Claire Fischer who’s stuck in time after her parents were involved in a fatal car crash on the way to her 16th birthday party. She meets Aaron Ricci, who sweeps her off her feet, although he comes with his own baggage.
I brought the end of Chapter 5-in which Claire and Aaron have their first fight, and the beginning of Chapter 6- where Sid (Aaron’s roommate and best friend’s girl) a hairstylist does her hair. On another note Sid is by far the most autobiographical character I’ve ever written: loud mouthed, lively, and a highly talented hairstylist.
One of my favorite things to do after my weekly critique circle with the Houston Writers Guild is to memorialize the good notes I get from the group. It’s always nice to look back over all the praise after numerous rejections in the literary world, and something I recommend for any author.
Below are some of the highlights. I’d like to thank the authors in my cc, and the Houston Writers Guild. I wouldn’t be half the writer I am now without them.
Stay tuned for my debut novel ‘Blood On The Potomac’ due this spring from Inklings Publishing.
