The Writer vs. The Author

This weekend the Lifetime movie version of Jane Porter’s novel, FLIRTING WITH FORTY premiered. I love when books are turned into movies because I find that film versions have the amazing ability to help non-readers discover books and authors. What it allowed me to do was to discover an author I had heard about, but never fully appreciated on my own. Last night I picked up ODD MOM OUT by Jane Porter and could not put it down! It is a wonderful book about being a renegade and a mom, and the challenges both positions pose.

Here is a blog post that Jane wrote about the life of an author versus the life of a writer and how different those two roles can be.
