Happy holidays, and thank you!

Christmas tree

Hi, check out our pretty tree! It’s a thousand degrees here at the moment, which means this evergreen goodness already feels like Melba toast and will probably be the same color by Christmas proper. But it smells amazing! And nobody’s knocked it over yet, which is one advantage of putting your tree way up high on a blanket box and jamming it in a corner before surrounding it with seven layers of presents. If you look closely though, you can just spy the toes of one of the smalls inching closer and closer on the sofa, so I’m sure it’s only a matter of time…

WordMothers is going dark for 2 weeks, but first I wanted to thank you all again for your incredible support this past year. Since launching last January, we’ve now featured nearly 200 female authors! It’s been an incredible privilege for me to interview so many wonderful writers and I’ve learned heaps — as a blogger, as a fan, as a writer myself… Thanks to all of you who have contributed in some way to making this site such a joy to run!

I’ve already begun lining up interviews for 2016 and look forward to reconnecting with all of you then. In the meantime, here’s wishing everyone a safe and peaceful holiday season!

Warm regards,
