Looking Out the Window: Anita Higman Tells Us about Her Latest Novel, Winter in Full Bloom. She'll Give Away a Copy.

It's my pleasure to welcome Anita to tell us about writing Winter in Full Bloom. To enter to win leave a comment and an e-mail address.

In Winter in Full Bloom Lily Winter's wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily's lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her-a woman who also happens to be her mother. During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she'd been hiding for decades-Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies.

 Without looking back, Lily-with her fear of flying-boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion…

Hi Nancy, first tell us a little about yourself.
I’ve been married for forty years to my husband, Norman. I have one child, Danny, who lives in Missouri. We just sold our house in Kansas and are moving to be near my wonderful son, his beautiful wife, and the cutest grandson in the whole world. I might be a little prejudiced, but Aidan has brought so much joy to our lives. We want to watch him grow up and be involved in his life.
I love animals and have a Puggle named Watson. He’s named after Doctor Watson from the Sherlock Holmes stories. I love mystery, and Watson is very, very nosy. His name fits him.
I’ve been writing for fifteen years and have had fifteen books published. I love writing and believe it’s my calling.

Lots of people who enjoy writing also have a history of reading. Were you an avid reader as a child? If so, what did you read?
Yes…
