• Do One Thing and Do it Well

    Like most creatives, I have this “thing” (I prefer not to call it a problem…) where I want to do everything. You know those days I’m talking about, right? You want to paint. But you also want to practice calligraphy. And then you want to build a sculpture. And after that you want to cut apart your(…)

  • The City Deer and the Country Deer

    I grew up in the country, so it’s important to me that my city-girl daughter grows up with a healthy respect for animals. That may have taken root too well: she wants to adopt one of every animal she comes across. When Sorrell was little, she wanted a deer. She spun a whole scenario that(…)

    A Pause From Reality

    I just got back from a week vacation in Mexico. My days consisted of sand, beach, pool, and so much sun. I joked a few days in that it was so funny to me that the only thing on my to do list, was to continue working on my tan. It felt so silly, but(…)

    Marketing for Introverts

    I’m an introvert, which means I prefer lots of quiet contemplation time. That works for me as a writer until it comes time to promote and market my work.
