Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month, (NaNoWriMo)? Do you have a novel inside you waiting to be born? Are you a novel doula? A story midwife? You could start now; visit the site; participation is free. Bring your kids along too; if you scroll down on the site you can read about the Young Writers Program.

Who is the world’s bestselling author, according to the Guinness Book of World Records? Her books have sold over 4 billion copies worldwide and have been translated into 44 languages.
