Reading is a superpower that we too often take for granted. It is telepathy. It is a time machine. It is a magic door into countless new worlds, hearts, and minds.

Every month, I send a simple personal email sharing books I love that you might too. Reading is an integral part of my creative process and I often find gems in unlikely places. The goal of the newsletter is to recommend books, fiction and nonfiction, that crackle and fizz with big ideas, entertain with wild abandon, challenge assumptions, and find meaning in a changing world. I also share writing updates and field notes from my journey as a novelist.

In an age of digital abundance, quality is the new scarcity. The right book at the right time can change your life.
