Another list! Rumi and the Red Handbag is on The Pickle Me This 2015 Best Books of the Year list, and with a great description: 

Rumi and the Red Handbag is a slim, heartbreaking and perfect read, rich with gorgeous prose, and depth and texture. Infused with allusions, explicit and otherwise, it’s a hushed and quiet celebration of women and their lives and their words and the secrets they carry. There is the Woolf, of course, and references to Clarice Lispector, who I’ve never read, but now I have to, and Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath. Plus vintage Harlequins—this is a book that permits great reverence to women’s stories and women’s spaces.” 

Meanwhile, there's a short interview with me on Stephanie Medford's blog, Everyday Artistry, about creative living. Very lovely to be asked to do this.
