You have become one of my favorite authors and I really enjoy all of your books. When I want to get in a really good mood, I re-read &dlquo;Finding Isadora.&drquo; Just finished my 4th reading. I am hooked on the Caribou Crossing series! When I read about Merilee&rsquot;s diagnosis in &dlquo;De repente, o amor&drquo; (Yours, Unexpectedly), I made my sister see a doctor. If I hadn&rsquot;t read your book, her own illness might have gone diagnosed. (a reader in Brazil) I just finished reading The Dirty Girls Book Club, AMAZING!!!! Ever since I read Fifty-Shades I hadn't been able to find a book that compared. Your books passed that. I couldn't put these books down.  a reader Thanks for all your hard work putting together the Write On, Vancouver conference. You&rsquot;ve affected so many people&rsquot;s lives!
