Lost in a Good Book
Being lost in a good book is Shea Robinson’s favorite place to be. Whether it's a new book she’s found from a recent adventure to a bookstore (like this one!) or the one she’s currently writing, a good book is her happy place. She’s always in the middle of reading several books as well as flexing her writing craft in all styles: novels, short stories, songs, raps, poetry, pantoums. She’s currently on draft 12 of her first novel, draft 1.5 of her second, and somewhere in the middle of writing a third because the writing is the most fun, the editing never ends, and in the end all she wants to do is write. Blogs are posted Tuesdays and Saturdays with book recommendations and writing ideas. Happy reading!
