In my next book, Best Laid Plans, Miranda, a poetry professor, engages in a torrid love affair with a student, finds fame as an internet celebrity for posting word sculptures as the Blocked Poet, and weighs a marriage proposal from her childhood crush, Scott, that would include becoming a step-mother to his adopted six-year old daughter, Lynn, who faces the loss of her biological mother to HIV and drug addiction.  Best Laid Plans explores how life often takes us to places we never knew we wanted to visit.
