Author Spotlight: George Bishop
Today I felt like "putting the spotlight" on an author I came to truly love this past Spring when I read his debut novel, Letter to My Daughter. (My review can be found here). It was such a beautiful story and I was brought to tears quite a few times. Author George Bishop has an impressive resume teaching overseas and has written quite a bit of short stories and essays. And surprisingly, he does not have a daughter (and of course he did not attend an all girls Catholic high school). How did he come to write a book that seems like a real letter from a mother to her teen daughter?? He explains that on his website. There's also a lot of other neat stuff to check out.
