Coming Sunday — Creative Living 6

February 3rd, 2009

One of my favorite writers, Laura Joh Rowland, brings 17th-century Japan to vivid life in her mystery series about Sano Ichiro and his wife, Lady Reiko. Over the course of twelve novels (thus far) she tells a detailed and complex story, while from volume to volume her major characters deepen and mature.  She also brings a sharp eye and meticulous plotting to Victorian England in her 2008 novel The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte.  On Sunday, she’ll present an insight into the physical side of creativity that’s not like anything anyone has shared with us yet.  I know you’re going to enjoy it — and I know you’ll like her books, too.

    Oh wow! This is very exciting. Great move, Tim. I recently stumbled across Ms. Rowland’s Japanese 17th century books and thought to myself, “Now, that looks interesting.” And here she is about to guest blog. Count me in!

    I would love to get started on the Sano Ichiro series, but here’s my problem: Where does one find time to read all the books out there that are interesting? My list of books-to-read-before-I-die is starting to resemble the local yellow pages. Any creative ideas anyone? I still have 400 pages left of Crime and Punishment but right now I just wish it was all over.

    Ms. Rowland, you have a great website that has truly whetted my appetite for your books and I look forward to reading what you have to say about creativity. No pressure!
