Profile Information

Who I am:
When I was a little girl my mother would let me sit in my father's leather chair and tell her my stories. We lived in Seattle at the time and I remember watching the rain fall as I told her all about my fictitious friends. She would sit at the desk nearby and type each word until I would dramatically call out "The End," in which case mother would pull the paper from the typewriter and add it to a notebook of all my tales. I continued to write until I found myself in a creative writing class in high school. The teacher took it upon herself to squash any literary ambition I might have had. That was years ago and I have heard that she is dead...which only means that her red marking pen can no longer highlight my pages. Free at last!
Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
I have helped write a memoir called Searching Through My Prayer List. Currently I am working on my first fiction novel. It has been a long road but I feel like I'm closing in on the finish line.
Media outlets that I currently write for:
My writing is:
Fiction, Blog Posts, Screenwriting
Outlets where I review books, TV, or film:
Services I offer to other writers:
My professional associations:
I found out about She Writes from:
Laurie Boris and Anjanette Porter Morton

A few days back an incredibly interesting scholar spoke on BBC about the misconception that the escalating madness in the world today signifies the onset of the end times. In fact, contrary to popular belief, this ‘bringer of good news’ believes we are living in the most peaceful era in many, many…

I just tweeted your Halloween post to my 375 followers, but I couldn't find your twitter handle in order to add it to the tweet. What is it?

Anne I'm guest-editing an anthology on the widowhood experience.  I was so touched by the story about your grandmother's long lost love.  I would love for you to submit it, perhaps with a couple of paragraphs about his being a kind of widower.  I'm not sure exactly what you'd need to say, but something that would link it to the subject matter.  Check out information on the anthology at and click on Call for Submissions.  Let me know what you think.  TZ

Aw, darn it, Annie.  Blogger ate my comment to you.  I had the forethought to copy it, though.  It's in response to your latest post:

I love this.  I can see Maddy perfectly, her poise, her confidence.  I'm envisioning some kind of terminal disease.  I don't feel like she'd off herself.  Something she hadn't planned for.  She's coping by treating it as just another extraordinary event in a series of extraordinary events of her life...the Chanel gown, the Champagne casket.  Probably dead wrong about her, huh?  Ah, well.  Very enjoyable.  Must have more Maddy.
