1. Pen Names Use by Women Writers
There was a time when being a female writer was looked down upon and to their works published or even read by a large number of people, women writers had to use what is called a pen name or pseudonyms to disguise their identity.
2. History of Women's Literature
How did women's literature get it's start? Read about some of the history of women and the written word.
3. Themes in Women’s Literature
To help further define what women’s literature is and maybe spark a story idea for you, I have compiled some common themes and sub-genres in women’s literature.
4. Women's Publishers
I am often asked about publishers that are only interested in publishing titles written exclusively by women. Here is a short listing of some I have found and my impression of the company.
5. In Sheep's Clothing Review
One can only wonder what incidents or people inspired IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING and its protagonist, Trudy, who trades integrity for the “good life,” confuses glamour with happiness, and is faced with paying the highest price imaginable for her deceptions.
6. The Overnight Socialite – Book Review
Bridie Clark is an excellent writer who keeps the reader engaged in the story and makes you want to not put the book down! The novel is one up and down after another as we watch Lucy blossom from a country girl to one of the most sought after women in New York.
7. Penguin Luck - Book Review
In Kay Mupetson's first novel, she tells the story of a woman torn between doing what her family wants and what she wants from life.
8. Mary Shelley - Author
A look at the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein.
9. Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich
This is the first Janet Evanovich novel I have ever read. Is she one of my new favorite authors?
10. The Kashmir Shawl by Rosie Thomas
The language Rosie Thomas uses to tell us this story is beautifully written. Her description of India makes you feel as if you are walking the same roads as Mair and Nerys. But, I am torn about how to write this review.
