Wow. That is the word I exclaimed aloud over and over as I read Sage Cohen’s shining new book. I have published several books with a major publisher, so I feel like I should be able to face blank page with equanimity by now. But of course I can’t—every project is a wild adventure. Like nothing I’ve ever read, Fierce on the Page brings honest inspiration to the multi-faceted, never-ceasing challenge of the writing process. With story, humor, grace, heart, and vast experience, Cohen teaches us to forge our own path through the intertwined tasks of creating an authentic human life and an authentic writing life.
