Hats Off! to Shuly Xochitl Cawood who was featured in the "Author Profiles & Interviews" section of Southern Literary Review. "I write for me most if not all of the time—that is, for the fun of it rather than with an endgame in mind," Shuly says. "This allows me the freedom to experience the joy that got me started writing in the first place, and it is why, to this day, I continue to love writing." Her new memoir is The Going and Goodbye, "an examination of loss and leaving and the search for meaning in the memories that remain."
