EARLY BIRD, RETURNING STUDENT & BRING-A-FRIEND

Dear Friends,

If you’ve been receiving my letters for a while, you’ve heard me talk—more than once, probably—about the workshop I host every February at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, helping writers and friends tell their story.  

As many pages as I’ve devoted to telling you about my Lake Atitlan gatherings—and though I like to think of myself as a person who knows a thing or two about good writing—I never feel I fully succeed in conveying what it is that makes the week so extraordinary.  A lot has to do with the place, of course—truly, one of the most beautiful spots on earth.  But there’s something about the spirit of the Mayan world and the people there that colors all of our days together.  Every time I host a group, I see it again:  the way being at the lake opens us all up creatively, emotionally, physically…and maybe I’ll dare to say this: spiritually.

 listen to Joyce read from the audio book -

Rachel and her younger sister, Patty, were always best friends; even more so following their parents’ bitter divorce. Together, they roam the backyards and nature trails of their suburban northern California neighborhood, seeking escape from their small, rundown house and their sad, lonely mother. They worship their father, the handsome and charming chief homicide detective for Marin County. But when someone begins to murder young women on the mountain behind their house, Detective Torricelli bans them from playing there and their innocent childhood life is changed forever.
