Former student Lindy DeKoven, who we’ve written about before here, recently published her second novel, The Secret Life of Wishful Thinking (Lake Union Publishing). Lindy calls Secret Life

“a fascinating spin on the Horatio Alger story — with female characters this time, finding their power through the workplace even as the nature of what it means to succeed evolves around them.”

Lindy credits her Writers’ Program classes with helping her hone her writing skills. “My instructors, Megan Crane and Francesca Lia Block, offered a comfortable setting which encouraged a free exchange of ideas and constructive criticism. The program is a wonderful springboard for new writers.”

Congratulations, Lindy!

If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Write to writers@uclaextension.edu.
