We’re thrilled to announce details of our February First Book Club. In a special online event presented with the 2015 Digital Writers’ Festival, author Ellen van Neerven will discuss her acclaimed debut book, Heat and Light. Learn about Ellen’s writing process, the inspiration behind her stunning stories, and her path to publication.
