Instructor Francesca Lia Block’s newest novel is coming soon. She says, “House of Hearts is the book I’ve been wanting to write since the beginning of my career. It’s a fertility myth, a thriller, a murder mystery, a love story and a very personal search for self, and I’m so excited to share it with my readers!”

Of her experience teaching in the Writers’ Program Francesca says, “I’ve been publishing since 1989 and working at UCLA Extension since 2010. It’s where I really started to examine my process in order to teach my students, and I’ve learned so much from each and every one of them. It’s a pleasure and honor to teach craft techniques to a writer with a story crying to be told. That cry though? That can’t be taught and it’s a precious thing.”

Congratulations, Francesca! If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Click here.
