Perched right on the Mason-Dixon line, tiny Runnymede, Maryland, is ripe with a history almost as colorful as the women who live there—from Celeste Chalfonte, headstrong and aristocratic, who murders for principle and steals her brother’s wife, to Fannie Jump Creighton, who runs a speakeasy right in her own home when hard times come knocking. Then of course, there’re Louise and Julia, the boldly eccentric Hunsenmeir sisters. Wheezie and Juts spend their whole lives in Runnymede, cheerfully quibbling about everything from men to child-rearing to how to drive a car. But they never let small-town life keep them from chasing their biggest dreams—or from being true to who they really are. Sparkling with a perfect combination of sisterhood and sass, Six of One is a richly textured Southern canvas—Rita Mae Brown “at her winning, fondest best”(Kirkus Reviews).

Evan's apprehension of what he will find in Scotland keeps him away for seventeen years. It's not lake monsters and fairies that concern him; it's the two people he loves most.He has never known Kathryn and Kellan without the magical manipulation of their witch grandmother. When they are in Mount Iolite, Ginny conceals their supernatural gifts so the vessel and outcaster can rest. That cloak prevents Evan from understanding their true powers, leaving him to his own dark and fearsome imaginings.His engagement to Kathryn emboldens him enough to finally experience the wild land his Brochs adore, and to accept however he finds them in it. But someone else finds him first, prompting an unforeseen path of self-discovery.The anxious excitement of his trip is overshadowed by the impending death of a deeply influential friend. The three are called to return to Mount Iolite, but a hard winter complicates their journey. Kellan's integral role in the passing of this great man amplifies his spiritual gifts ten-fold as he and his sister embark on a new life chapter. With their destinies continuing to emerge, the paths of the six further intertwine, drawing them ever closer to their collective purpose.

This is a memoir of my childhood, growing up in Fresno California in a family of twelve children. It is also the beginning of my relationship with the man I would marry. It is a story of hardship, hilarity and hope. It begins and ends with the transforming love of a man toward a young woman (me) who did not understand the truth of love. It navigates through the devastating and often confusing turns in circumstance. The story weaves through the troubling times of youth, peer pressure, sibling rivalry, family history and opens the door to the question of the future.

From the best-selling author of Rubyfruit Jungle and Bingo, here is a writers' manual as provocative, frank, and funny as her fiction. Unlike most writers' guides, this one had as much to do with how writers live as with mastering the tools of their trade. Rita Mae Brown begins with a very personal account of her own career, from her days as a young poet who had written a novel no publisher wanted to take a chance on, right up to her recent adventures as a Hollywood screenwriter. In a sassy style that makes her outspoken advice as entertaining as it is useful, she provides straight talk about paying the rent while maintaining the energy to write; and dealing with agents, publishers, critics, and the publicity circus; about pursuingj ournalisim, academia, or screen-writing; and about rejecting the Hemingway myth of the hard-living, hard-drinking genius. In addition Brown, a former teacher or writing, offers a serious examination of the writer's tool--language, plotting, characters, symbolism--plus exercises to sharpen the ear for dialogue, and a fascinating, annoted reading list of important works from the seventh century to the late twentieth.
