Louise Penny’s brightening up the world with her engaging, fun, well-written books about a fictitious Canadian village full of fabulous characters. She can write. And, she keeps winning awards.
She also manages her own social media channels, which I really appreciate because many authors do not manage theirs. And, she does a great job of not trying too hard to manage her reputation. God help us when writers do THAT.
Oh, and, by the way, on her site is a section about getting published. How lovely that she shares tips.
