Comments from the author about writing:
My career as an author is taking me on a wonderful and unexpected journey. It may sound funny but my approach to my knitting books and my law book (to be published in 2009) were very similar -- provide readers with solid, practical advice in a fun and conversational manner while encouraging service to others.
