Libraries are one of those wonderful places that I have amazing memories of, both from my childhood and as an adult. Summer reading programs and finding a new book you’ve never read before. Getting a new library card to put in your tiny purse at the age of ten. I hope we all have memories like that. There’s a lot … Read More

Why I’m an Expert at Getting Bad Smells Out of Carpet
Sorry for the slight break in posts. It’s been one of those weeks. *** Warning Mommy Graphicness in this Post *** So I had thought my son was beginning to outgrow his acid reflux.

When good writing gets in the way of your writing…

I think for me personally I’m going to have to go one step farther and … Read More
The Strange Workings and Writings of a Mind that Skips Too Far Ahead of Itself
“Wow. I tell you what— wow!” I just read over a document I’d labelled as ‘Science Project Novel’. Looking at the info on my computer I typed it up almost two years ago. Apparently my brain jumped faster than my fingers could type because it makes no sense at all. If you’re a writer of any sort you’ll understand that sometimes … Read More
How on Earth did I keep my head in the sand that long?
So three days ago I ‘discovered’ goodreads. I know I know. Right? How does an author not know about goodreads. Well suffice it to say that I’d heard it mentioned many times in reference to other authors or agents (or the like).
