Fairies Don’t Write Novels…

One of the things I like about being a member of the NaNoWriMo site is the Pep Talk emails from published authors. One of my favorite authors, Diana Gabaldon (the Outlander series & Lord John Grey series), wrote one a few weeks ago. Today we received one from Stephanie Perkins, author of...

Inspiration Strikes When You Least Expect It

I’m working on a new project. I’m excited! I can’t wait to see how this goes. Or how far. Kind of curious to see if I can pull this off. Character names are going to change later so I don’t have to keep them straight. For now, enjoy a snippet of...

It’s My First Video Blog!!!!

Yep, that’s right. My first attempt at vlogging. Some notes about this video: 1. I was nervous-excuse the um’s and moments where I stumble over my tongue. 2. My brain works on warp speed sometimes and it takes awhile for my mouth to catch up-sometimes my brain stops mid-tracks and I...

The Adventures of the Blonde Princes

So, I thought I’d share a little something I wrote a very long time ago for a family newsletter. It was something light and fun and I still giggle when I read it because it brings back soooo many memories. I hope it makes you smile today. 🙂   The Adventures...
