What I've written lately

I thought I was promoting myself to the point of embarassment, but when my own mother was surprised when I casually mentioned something I'd written, I thought it was time to give a consolidated update.


An interview with Pankaj Ghemawat, the author of World 3.0
An interview with Randal Christensen, the author of Ask Me Why I Hurt
A review of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot
A review of Unnatural Selection by Mara Hvistendahl
Shakespeare and Scarlet Letters- My Heroes
Getting Noticed Online Is Harder If We DON'T Have An Online Presence
The Blackberry vs. The Library- A Writer's Toolkit

(Special thanks to Erin Cawood and Literary Boston for allowing me to pontificate on their sites.)

Some of my selected blog posts:

Ms. Nam-Krane Goes to Washington
Why Is Infrastructure a Bad Idea?
Thank God for the Public Library System

What I'm reading right now: Fresh, by Susanne Freidberg

What I'm doing tomorrow: interviewing the author of two books that have changed the paradigm of how we think about world history.

As always, please send me book recommendations.  I prefer my non-fiction to back up any analysis with data, and I like my fiction to feature believable characters.
