Queries, Qualms, & Quirks asks published authors to share their successful query letter and discuss their journey from first spark to day of publication.
Thriller Author Ashley Winstead joins Queries, Qualms, & Quirks this week to discuss dreams deferred, not getting into an MFA, feeling like a Pitch Wars Showcase failure, how much easier writing the second book was, the importance of writing friends, making up new things to worry about, and having the courage to be the writer you want to be.
Ashley Winstead is the author of In My Dreams I Hold a Knife, which has received positive reviews from the New York Times and Publishers Weekly, among others, and has been named one of the best debuts of the year by CrimeReads and Library Journal. She has a PhD in English and lives in Houston.
