The crosser of the Rubicon in this case is Leslie Light, a professional non-fiction editor and amateur fiction writer. She’s the newly excited and overwhelmed mother of one daughter and the lifetime wife of a librarian/historian. That means her life is full of the past and the future, books ranging from On the Day You Were Born to Mein Kampf, pens and swords, and a healthy dose of the opinions of others. That’s what the comments field is for: the opinions of others. Take the hint.
