Bestselling Women Authors Discuss Women Writing


Here’s a lovely way to start your Sunday. With a nod to Women’s History Month, Open Road Media has created a 2-minute video featuring bestselling female mystery writers Ruth Rendell, Susan Isaacs, Jane Langton, Mary Burton and more, sharing their thoughts on women and writing.

A couple great quotes from the video:

“Being as old as I am doesn’t stop me from starting something, or carrying on with a difficult job.”

—Jane Langton

“To be accepted allows you room to flower, to breathe. You have a great gratitude toward those who accept you.”

—Anne Perry

    Thank you so much for this. I’m at that drained place where my eyes have been tediously seeking errors in my latest ms, so this was the well-deserved refreshments at end of a parched spell.
