Jenny Holiday started writing in fourth grade, when her awesome hippie teacher, between sessions of Pete Seeger singing and anti-nuclear power plant letter writing, gave the kids notebooks and told them to write stories. Most of Jenny's featured poltergeist, alien invasions, or serial killers who managed to murder everyone except her and her mom. She showed early promise as a romance writer, though, because nearly every story had a happy ending: fictional Jenny woke up to find that the story had been a dream, and that her best friend, father, and sister had not, in fact, been axe-murdered. From then on, she was always writing, often in her diary, where she liked to decorate her declarations of existential angst with nail polish teardrops. Eventually she channelled her penchant for scribbling into a more useful format. After picking up a PhD in urban geography, she became a professional writer, and has spent many years promoting research at a major university, which allows her to become an armchair astronomer/historian/particle physicist, depending on the day. Eventually, she decided to try her hand again at happy endings--minus the bloodbaths.
Last time I went on a beach vacation was so long ago that I brought actual, physical books with me. Twelve of them to be exact—my husband joked that I needed a separate suitcase for my books. Then I got an e-reader, and, oh, I was SO set for vacation. But then I also got: a kid and a second career as a writer on top of my day job. So that was pretty much it for carefree beach vacations (alas). If you were headed to the beach right now, what would be the first book you’d read?
