NEW BEGINNINGS

By |2016-10-19T09:46:46-04:00May 25th, 2016|Categories: Book Releases, Uncategorized, Writing|Tags: |

Some say change is good, some say a new beginning or a fresh new start is great...but all at the same time! I love a challenge, especially weaving my characters in and out of various fictional plots. But weaving my time in and out of various projects has been a challenging task unto itself.  After publishing my forth and final novel of The Simon Tetralogy, I immediately began a new series, starring Maxine Ford as the female protagonist. Some of  you may remember that Max was introduced in the second novel, Noble's Quest, and has become a beloved character by many. It [...]

DO IT…DONE…LIFE SIMPLIFIED

  You may have noticed that during the summer months I’ve been spending most of my time in the “Time Out” Room in cyberspace. But it has not been for the lack of activity or a much-needed vacation. My time has been spent organizing a move from one house to another in Sarasota including: orchestrating modifications to the new home, working off the pesky list of things to do like switching over utilities, change of address, and dealing with the myriad of documents conjured up by lawyers to be signed…all the while living in Florence. Then I returned to Sarasota [...]

  ARE YOU MILDLY CURIOUS AS TO MY RELATIVE SILENCE? If so, I can provide the reason in one word...   D E S tarting last May, Joe, my loving husband and editor, was hit with a series of medical issues. And for a man who is extremely healthy, it was quiet daunting. Then there was my foot saga that continues to present shoe challenges daily. The unexpected and unplanned health issues continued to plague us, capping off the year at the Mayo Clinic during the Christmas holiday season. Then, after the harsh welcoming of the New Year, our good health [...]

THE HOMESTRETCH

By |2020-02-26T18:00:03-05:00September 2nd, 2013|Categories: The Simon Tetralogy, Writing|Tags: |

I know I've been relatively silent on the airwaves over the past several weeks, and unfortunately, it wasn't for an extended vacation. I have been totally immersed in The Ultimate Revenge. Due to the timely subject matter, my publisher David Dunham is eager to have the book ready for distribution in February. Now there are those dreaded deadlines looming. I'm proud to say that I met the first one on Saturday and turned over the first 27 chapters and the last two chapters. I admit at times there were moments as Charles Dickens described, “Prowling about the rooms, sitting [...]

AUTHOR WITH TWO HATS

By |2014-09-17T06:11:57-04:00July 15th, 2013|Categories: Writing|Tags: |

  Fiction is definitely my genre, although I find myself having to wear two hats. One obviously is fiction, but the other is fact. I relish creating my characters, attempting to make them bigger than life. And it's such a thrill when my readers discuss my characters as though they were real. I also enjoy the twists and turns I create and the subtle clues I bury. But to make my plots plausible I need to weave in facts. Fortunately, I equally enjoy the research required, delving into the various topics to support my storyline. When researching, I always triple [...]

SLOGGING NOT BLOGGING

  Yesterday I didn't post my Monday Morning Muse. Instead, I was slogging away promoting "The Simon Trilogy." I spent the morning tweeting a hundred plus politicos, talking heads, and news reporters with a catchy byline. To get around the 140 character limitation, I created a photo containing the rest of the information I wanted to convey. Fortunately, I had Joe, my editor, standing by to help write the content...I find it difficult to write when it has to do with promoting myself...which of course, is exactly what I'm doing now. Hmmm. Anyway, I came up with this promotional idea, [...]
