What was she thinking?

I don’t know about you, but as I read I often wonder what the author was thinking. Why did she choose that detail? What did this segment mean to her? What did she expect us, the readers, to glean from that phrase?

The Guiltless Reader blog likes to answer those questions. They post excerpts from current books along with the author’s insights about what was in her mind as she wrote the scene.

Today on the blog, you can read an excerpt from Her Own Vietnam and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what I was thinking as I wrote it.
