Missing Mother

I’m going to miss Mother’s Day with my kids again this May, for the second year in a row. Both times the reason is that I need to be on national tour for my debut novel, Girl in Translation: last year for its publication and this year for the paperback release.

These are such wonderful comments. Love hearing about everyone's moms.
