The Satellite Sisters Word Write Author Interviews continue with a conversation with Elisabeth Egan, debut novelist of A Window Opens. Author Egan tells us about her leap from the business side of the books business to the author side. She penned her first novel at her daughter’s swim team practice and on her commuter train. The result is A Window Opens, a warm, funny tale of woman caught between work, life and books. Lian Dolan talks to Elisabeth Egan about her writing process, the discipline she used to get the book written day-by-day, what working in the book business taught her about writing her first novel.
