I wrote about the idea a little bit in my book because the idea stuck with me. Now, two years later, I’m still quoting her, and I’m still struck by how often I find myself to spreading this idea to writers.
The idea itself is simple: Be generous. It’s worth something. But just like…Continue
For several years, I’d been telling myself not to participate in any more submission calls or literary contests unless they helped move my memoir on Nepal forward. I’m too easily distracted and had to keep my focus on my book. So I refused to prepare any more submissions unless they inspired me to polish a scene or a chapter.
Evaluating benefits has not always been straightforward though. One winter, I couldn’t resist a seemingly unrelated contest and worked on a lyrical essay that seemed frivolous at the time. But what emerged helped me discover a key theme I’d been missing in my book. I became a finalist in that contest but didn’t win or have my essay published. I soon realized that was all for the best. I didn’t want that piece in print. I found it most useful as a guide to help me rethink…
When I was writing my first novel, I was so excited to see my own words on the page that I ended up with several scenes that didn't have much at all to do with the main plot. After I signed with an agent, she pointed out this tendency to wander and had me cut a lot. I mean, a LOT. It was painful to hit the delete key, but I realized she was right. (Click here to read my post on what to do with scenes you cut.)
When you're writing a novel, it's important to always keep the story moving forward. If you go off on tangents that have nothing to do with the plot or aren't going to somehow tie back into it later, your readers are going to get confused or bored, and they may stop reading entirely.…Continue
A fire spreads across a California hillside above the town of Point Richmond and claims the lives of two children. When signs point to possible Ku Klux Klan involvement, homicide detective Oliver Wright throws himself into solving the crime—but in the midst of his investigation, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. As the entire West Coast mobilizes for war, Oliver reenlists in the Marine Corps and is forced to abandon the investigation when he’s sent to work on K-9 patrol on the island of Guam.
After the war, Oliver returns to Richmond haunted by the memory of friends who died fighting, only to find himself entangled in another difficult inquiry: the hanging of an Italian prisoner of war, the chief suspects for which are black soldiers who rioted after the Port Chicago Mutiny trial. With the help of a black MP…Continue

According to AARP Bulletin, too many boomers & seniors find themselves living with their children all over again – in the boomer & seniors’ home. And, if that wasn’t enough they’re driving your car and eating your food. The article asks, “Do they know what that’s costing you?” And, unfortunately too many of these young adults don’t even know or care about the effect they’re having on their parents’ lives. When surveyed, most of them felt they were causing…
Since Matty the manger mouse was dropped off at my door via a FedEx truck almost three months ago I feel like my life has been caught up in a whirlwind. I’ve been blown all across North Carolina and even into parts of Tennessee and Virginia. Four of Matty’s stories were even air mailed to Colorado this week. I feel like Jennifer Grey in the movie Dirty Dancing. One minute you’re on a nice leisure vacation, spending time with your family at a fancy resort on Lake Lure, then all of a…

“I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Serena's. I loved this book even more than the first one in the series. I am always intrigued by stories of arranged marriages and how they turn to marriages filled with love. These two characters had so much to overcome, coming from different cultures. Yet, they…
A big debate I've had with my husband and friends: Do you give someone a gift that you'd want to receive? Or do you give someone a gift you believe they truly want (and you might not)?
I lean to the latter. For example, a 70-something relative of mine is super into gift cards and since he's' renovating his kitchen, I might get him a Home Depot gift card. I…
