Winner of the New Muse Award
“I picked Like Minds because of the writer’s confident way with story structure and her often humorous, but always accurate way of depicting character. The author deals with topical issues without being cloying or editorializing, and she offers an intriguing portrait of women’s lives.”
—Norm Ravvin, author, New Muse 1998 judge
