It’s easy to write about boy meets girl or girl meets boy. Insert a villain,
some scenery, conflict, the use of senses, a bit of backstory and foreshadowing,
and you’re done, right? Wrong. It’s much more interesting when you throw in big
(or even small, intimate) events. Whether they are a fact of life (like a birth
or death), a crazy family reunion or a tragic occurrence, your writing will be Read More...
Suspended . . . Coney Island painting project. The beach, Washington Baths,
swimming, blackball, cool sand under the boardwalk, with friends, watching
Tuesday night fireworks, Nathan’s hotdogs, French fries and steamed corn.

I’m a huge believer in fate. When we don’t know what’s ahead, or can’t see how
things work, we can trust that Fate is there, stepping in, even if we don’t know
she’s there! I’ve seen evidence of this so many times in my life. So much so
that I’ve learned to trust. To be comforted, rather than frightened, when Fate
takes a hand.
Take, for instance Read More...
When you pick up a book at your local bookstore or library, or download it to
your electronic device, do you ever read the acknowledgment page? These are the
people who helped the author create the story. They answered questions or
provided background detail so that the fiction would be based in reality. Here
are four of my acknowledgements for Magnolia
Moonlight. They tell a story in themselves….
Special thanks Read More...

One of the best days of my life was when I got to visit Nashville, and for the
first time to meet my narrator, Mr. J.D. Hart. He showed me places he used to

down Broadway. I felt like Cinderella.

author. Of her six completed novels, PRIDE Read More...
Comic book visuals that captured the hearts of America, mystified me. My pencil
crossed the blank page pulling lines to create yesteryear's super heroine,
Wonder Woman. I don't remember coloring the pictures. It would have had to be
crayon, so I just used my pencil.
I sketch on location. Like my long time architect friend, Stephanie Bower. She
takes groups all over Seattle, Italy, Hong Kong, Asia, and more. She Read More...
