3 Out of 3 Reviewers Agree

  I read some of my reviews. I know I probably shouldn’t. That mature writers most likely ignore them. But I’m not sure that I’m all that mature. So, I read them. My Mother’s Chamomile has garnered a few so far. Just 3 between…

Slurping Coffee Like a Barista

  Yesterday, I took my regular, favorite seat at my local Starbucks. The one all the way in the back. It’s the best spot for people watching. Well, and it’s close to the bathroom…so there’s that. Now, I spend a good amount of time…

Getting Ready to Breathe

Tomorrow, at this time, I’ll be running around with bubbly bumpy nerves flitting about my tummy. Excitement and nervous energy and massive doses of caffeine will keep me going. Tomorrow is the first day of the 2013 Breathe Christian Writers Conference. I’m leading a…

It must have been Great Lakes Christian College week here at the blog. In fact, it’s been girl’s dorm, 3rd floor week! All three stories are inspired by my Nunnery Sisters from the old college days (why called the Nunnery? Cause boys weren’t allowed up…

Today’s story idea comes from Kristi West…the woman behind the inspiration for Scourge (the winner of last week). Here’s her idea… Frank: 40ish year old father of 3 Setting: His kitchen Conflict: With his wife out of town, Frank must make his 10 year old daughter’s…

Good-bye, George — Inspired by Kristi West

Kristi West and I go way back. We attended college together, sang in the choir, performed in Madrigals, etc. Kristi was my very first fan (on my Facebook “novelist” page) and she made sure to get a whole bunch of people to “like” me….
