Sue Lange is your typical multi-tasking author. She tweets, facebooks, and blogs so much she has no time to write. The minute she sits down to do so, somebody somewhere posts another cute cat photo, or an update on the fertility rites of the Royal Family. You know, something that simply must be investigated. Somehow in the distant past before humanity discovered the Internet, she did write. Now she just provides content. Some of it is here at Book View Café.
