Who says you have to be a girl to write chick-lit?

Washington Post profiles Patrick Sanchez who started writing chick-lit to take a break from his job in health care admin. (Full disclosure: I also work in health care admin, so you go, Patrick!)

From the article: "He worked up a humorous book about the amorous adventures of several characters, male and female, and sent out queries. An editor at Kensington Publishing in New York thought he saw a niche for the book in the developing chick-lit field and asked Patrick to "get rid of the men," Patrick recalls. "When you are a first-time writer trying to get published, it's like, 'Tell me what you want, and I'll do it.'""
