curiosity makes good stories
I have big curiosity about most things. I've kept notebooks since I was eight after reading what is still my favorite book, Harriet-the-Spy. Harriet prompted me to become a journalist and write a slew of books. A memoir, Other People's Dirt, was translated into several languages and is now an e-book. Recently I launched "Unhitched" - a column about divorce - at the New York Times where I often write Vows.
