My novel, THINKING FOR HIM, is being edited by Wylie O'Sullivan. She was the editor Rob McQuilkin originally had in mind when he read the novel. She was a senior editor at Free Press and has taken a hiatus to raise her children. I am very keen for her to edit the novel, and her work should be done in a few weeks. It then goes back to Rob McQuilkin after I do the rewrite and then, hopefully, it will go out to publishing houses.

A funny thing happened on the way to finishing my newest novel, THINKING FOR HIM. I received a stunningly nice letter from Rob McQuilkin--from Lippincot, Massie and McQuilkin--and he loved the novel and wanted to represent it if, and here's the strange part, I would allow him to acquire an editor to edit the novel. He sent it out to an independent editor--Anika Streitfeld--who read it and said it was too "grim". Mr. McQuilkin then said he was going to try Jane Rosenman. That was nearly two weeks ago and haven't heard from him since. Nail-biting time.
