My wife reads my books and we often discuss them. She edited my last novel, Artful and was a great source of ideas and improvement.

RE: Authors - Does your partner read your work?

My wife did do some proof reading for me and was always there to discuss clarity issues, structure etc. She hasn't read the book yet, but she says she will some day.

I'm not sure how I feel about that.
