Plum Bean is a catch phrase in my family for going out on a limb and following that inner directive that tells you to do something absolutely contrary to logic, reason, common sense and statistics. Plum Bean has led me to move to a country where I knew no one (twice), talk to strangers, ask a famous playwright if she might like my help (amazingly she did), meet my best friends, jump off a cliff, do a PhD, bring home stray animals and write a novel.
This blog is about my adventures in publishing, writing, reading and generally living a plum bean life.
I am so happy you are here.
