“Writing fiction is a perfect life choice for someone like Vanessa Grant who can’t make up her mind what she wants to do when she grows up!” There are so many choices and I want to do them all. In real life I’ve taken a lot of roads: I’ve studied psychology, volunteered on a crisis line and as a peer counselor for a family life organization, worked as an accountant and a software developer, taught accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and best of all–told stories about life, love, and secrets. In my stories, my heroes and heroines have lived many of the lives I’m fascinated by. I live with my wonderful husband and two energetic Australian Shepherds on Vancouver Island … and every so often we indulge in wanderlust and leave the island to go exploring.

    I can’t think of a better way to understand something than to read a personal memoir.

    Thanks so much for the recommendation!

    I read it too, and what truly amazed me was how Margaret could take such weighty subject matter and deliver it with such a light tone. I was fully prepared for a hard read, but I couldn’t put it down.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
