Yesterday, in the middle of my son’s fifth birthday celebration (which also happened to be New Year’s Day), I got a text from my friend Peter, who has been by my side through the high highs and low lows of my writing career:
Peter: Um. You are on ew.com.
Peter: 14 rising starts to watch in 2014!!!!
Me: What??? OMG!!!
It went on from there, but you get the idea: we were both pretty excited.
Thanks, Entertainment Weekly, for putting me on your list, and writing that Bittersweet “evokes Gone Girl with its exploration of dark secrets and edge-of-your-seat twists.” Here’s to 2014!
