Truth is like a kidney infection.

I mean it hurts. I know because I’m recovering from one.

The publishing industry is biased against women. I think about publishing under a more masculine name like T.M. Sumner all the time. I hate to let this machismo business affect me, but unless I plan on publishing chick lit (and I don’t) I have a hard time imagining they’d permit “Tiffany” on the cover of a literary or genre novel.
