Phoebe Wolkind Ephron cracked wise like Dorothy Parker and looked like Katharine Hepburn.
Outlining is like putting on training wheels. It gives me the courage to write, but we always go off the outline.
Everyone thinks when they start writing that they can't do it. I was lucky. My sister Delia was the most important person in terms of encouraging me.
My rule of writing is that no one can do what you can do, so jealousy or competitiveness are pointless. I am always happy when one of my sisters has a book published that I get to read.
The book that made a lasting impression was the one my mother gave each of us when she decided we were ready for our first 'adult novel,' Lucy Maud Montgomery's 'The Blue Castle.'
