There is no wrong place to read a book! Dora Levy Mossanen is a woman after our own heart. Find out how the bathtub became her reading spot of choice for her latest novel, Scent of Butterflies.
A bathtub might not be an exotic location to read a book, but when you are dressed up to the nines and on your way to a black tie gala and you walk into the bathtub with makeup on and in your high heels and ball grown, then it can become semi-exotic.
One of the great expressions about fiction writing is that “We tell untruths to arrive at truths.”
That’s why I started writing novels, and especially that’s why I started writing medical thrillers.
Doctors save lives. We deliver babies and save babies. We help prevent disease, we treat disease, and we can often cure disease. The power of life and death is often in our hands.

Mary Kubica, author of the thrilling The Good Girl (which kept us up more than a few nights!) shows us where she makes the magic happen.

They say that every moment gives writers an opportunity to explore character development, and this month I found mine in a graveyard.
I had been in an all-day meeting with about 20 other writers, in a hall on the historic grounds of St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. A few of our attendees had never been there before. In this church–perched on a hill with the grounds and old graveyard fenced in–is where Patrick Henry said his famous words, “Give me liberty or give me death.”
