What is privacy to a writer? Bestselling author Ania Szado asks and answers that question in her current guest blog. Gail also has a few things to say on the subject: click on From Gail's Desk.
Ania Szado is the author of STUDIO SAINT-EX, "an unputdownable novel about twentieth century fashion, French expatriates in Manhattan during World War II, the miracle of creative genius and the lives of the great writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery [THE LITTLE PRINCE] and the women he loved."~Lawrence Hill.
STUDIO SAINT-EX has sold to five countries and debuted as a national bestseller. Ania's critically acclaimed debut novel, Beginning of Was, was regionally shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, nominated for the international Kiriyama Prize and named a NOW magazine Top Ten book.
