I am so grateful that I get to do what I love. Seriously, as a fulltime freelance writer and publishing consultant, even in these tumultuous times where the industry has suffered many job losses, I am surviving.

This is the beginning of the story of an autobiography, from when it was accepted ( months ago) to the time when it will be published ( some months from now). The working title is Undue Process but I have decided I don't like that anymore and am going to change it back to Excessomania. Because that...
