Two divorcées? That's probably something many readers can relate t...

You’ve written a novel; now what? Interview with author Rita Plush

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Saturday, March 9, 2013, In : Author Interviews 


Tell us something about your novel.

Lily Steps Out is a middle-age coming-of-age about a woman who is sick of making beds and cooking meals and decides to “step out” of the comfortable life she knows and goes out and gets a job.
