Book Quotes I Love

My weekend was not what I hoped. I missed the deadline to join the 52 Week Chalkenge Blog Hop, but I thought I’d share my thoughts anyway. I still prefer paper books to ebooks. One reasis the ability to underline and write in a physical book. For awhile I kept a 3×5 file box of…


These Words #MFRWAuthor

When I hear the phrase “words to live by” I think of Facebook memes and quotes at the end of writing exercises. But they are more than that. Often they’re a shorthand for someone’s philosophy toward a particular thing or life in general (Don’t sweat the small stuff), or an emotion. Speaking of which, I…


‘Tis Always the Season

I have friends who say they would like nothing better than to have static seasons, preferably in a warm climate. I can’t imagine being happy with that. There are things I don’t like about each season but why deprive myself of the good parts? It will be difficult to limit myself to the best part…


The Way to My Heart is–Hold on, I’m Not That Easy #MFRWAuthor

I admit it. In some regards I’m a tough nut to crack. I don’t impress easily and I surely do not trust easily. However, there are a few traits that I find appealing, characteristics that will touch my heart immediately and lower my guard. Probably the easiest way to my heart is showing gentleness and…


The Only Love There Is

As a writer of Urban Fantasy,  I live to tell stories that transport you to a super- natural world, one that intrigues you, touches your heart, and entices you to return over and over again. I also hope to give you something to think about.  The characters you meet are a motley bunch of beings:…


From Novel to the Big Screen: *Meh*

The blog hop topic this week is my “favorite movie made from a book”. It would have been so much easier to write about favorite books that had been ruined by being made into a movie. I’m not generally a fan. One of my earliest favorite movies is The Haunting (1963) based on The Haunting…

My Life: Laughing Out Loud

I’ve been known to embarrass myself by breaking into laughter at inappropriate moments. Who doesn’t enjoy laughing? I have laughed so hard at movies that my sides hurt. In fact, I have laughed through movies that apparently the rest of the audience did not find funny, like Tremors. Anything by Kevin Hart is sure to…


Little Glimpses, Big Inspiration

I have far more ideas for stories written in my notebook than I will ever have time to write. Some are favorites for me to think about as I fall asleep or as I’m driving. I’ve tried to bring them into being a few times but so far it’s not worked. They’re fun but dont…


Writing for Perfection #MFRWAuthor

I have been called a perfectionist. I don’t think that is a bad thing and has served me well in my academic life as well as in my career. I like to think it makes me a better writer, too, but it has its downside–Perfection as a writer is impossible to attain. While everyone around…
