Interview with Diane Jeffrey. The woman is way too energetic but I'll let her off because she writes good books. I really enjoyed The Guilty Wife. #amreading #thriller

I created and co-wrote a TV show in Ireland. It was commissioned by a woman & produced by a woman. All the lead characters: women. Just read an article written by a man that only referenced my male co-writer.
Just saying.
