My mother is writing a memoir. My uncle is halfway through the second part of a trilogy. My aunt has a couple of volumes under her belt as well. Many of my colleagues have manuscripts in progress. Two of my editors are working on their first books. One of my closest girlfriends just signed a deal to write young adult fiction. Another pair of old friends are collaborating on their third title (the first two were bestsellers). And these are just the ones I know about.
reading books is definitely more fun than writing them (globeandmail.com)
