"It’s been so much fun to hear from readers responding to my novel, As If Women Mattered. People of a certain age have expressed excitement because it brings them back to vivid times of the early 70’s and the women’s movement, and younger readers have expressed poignant wishes that they could have a women’s group like this. I’m excited that this book is finding its way into the world and before readers. I started this book a long time ago (I won’t divulge how long – but lets just say- I didn’t expect it to be a historical novel) The story was inspired by my own experiences with feminism and consciousness raising and I wanted to share the exhilaration of those times and the significance of women connecting with each other. I hope you enjoy it and would love hearing from you."
