Dawn at She Is Too Fond of Books wrote a lovely review of Tomato Girl. Read the review here.

I just finished another round of 30:30 at Inside the Writer's Studio. It was great fun and something I've missed during the many months of writing fiction. I think I'll return tomorrow to do another 30 poems. It's addictive!
