Beryl Singleton Bissell is an author whose memoir The Scent of God (Perseus Books Group/Counterpoint Press)is doing very well in the United States. In the near future I plan to post a review of her book and Beryl has very kindly agreed to answer a few questions which will accompany it.
Beryl was born in Saddle River New Jersey, grew up in Puerto Rico, and entered a cloistered monastery the day after she graduated from high school. She left religious life fifteen years later. She now lives on the North Shore of Lake Superior and has a son and three grandchildren. Her 24-year-old daughter died in 2001.
She has a website (www.berylsingletonbissell.com) and runs a blog, which you can check out as I am posting the link on my Author Blogs sidebar.
