I just finished reading Mrs. Greenthumbs Plows Ahead: Five Steps to the Drop-Dead Gorgeous Garden of Your Dreams, by Cassandra Danz, and I have to say that as far as authors go, she’s my new hero. Not only was the book amazingly informative, but her writing style is funny, and irreverent, and completely accessible. I have a proposal in for a new book (which I will hopefully discuss here next week), and I’m looking forwarding to applying the lessons on writing I learned from Ms. Danz in this upcoming effort (assuming the publisher is willing to pay me to write the book).
