This is a group for writers who feel compelled to write and read about strong, female protagonists. Maybe you were inspired to write by a resilient woman you know or maybe that strong female character is you! What difficulties in your life have you overcome and what is the message you'd like to share through your memoir?This is a place to explore that spark of light within the human soul that propels us forward regardless of our circumstances. It's the power to break down walls.

"Shelah, I feel for you--how long have you been waiting for them to get back to you? I have only been waiting a week. This process is longer and sloggier than I'd hoped. My reading went quite well last night. "

"I wrote the first draft with the help of a professional editor. Maybe I should send what I think of as the new, improved manuscript out to an editor. "

So, What's up with the book?

What’s up with the book is that I had almost decided to self-publish, then changed my mind because I got the name of an agent through my author friend Rebecca Goldstein. Now I'm waiting for that agent, Barer Literary, to get back to me. I got a form letter that says they have my query. These are the steps I took to self-publish my book, which are the same steps one would take to send the book out to agents: I edited and re-edited the manuscript, gave it to a couple of friends to read, even read…See More

Weight Watchers? What Weight Watchers? repost

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 9:17pm 0 Comments

I try not to whine about being on a diet, which involves using the Weight Watchers iphone app to track my 'points,'  the WW term for unionized calories, for the day and trying to keep within the proposed guidelines. But (whine) it's very hard going to celebrations and not eating too much. Especially when the celebrations are with my Jewish family on the East Coast, where no celebration is complete unless it requires an  Alka-Seltzer afterwards.

I did well on the airplane for a…

The Swarm was a Hot Property

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 10:47pm 0 Comments

I was just thinking about laying down for a Sunday afternoon nap when my doorbell rang.

I retreated to the bathroom and let my husband deal with it. As usual, it didn't work. When I came out of the bathroom, he heard the door open and came upstairs. R, the adorable six year old son of one of our neighbors on the alley, was waiting on our walk, with his bicycle, and urgent news.

"There's billions of bees flying around and dead bees on the driveway."

I have a beehive, and…

Hey! Desalinate all you want, but get outta myway!

Bibi Netanyahu and Jerry Brown were talking about solving water problems, but I was lat for my workout!

It was 10:15, and I was driving to my workout, late, as usual, when my phone rang.

“There’s something going on at the Computer History Museum,” my personal trainer said over the Bluetooth connection in my car. “Some thing to do with Israel. They blocked off the street, so you have to park at the movie theater..”

I thanked her and took the route that led to the Century…

Preeva,
Yes. My book is out and is available on Amazon. It's also at Kepler's and at Books, Inc. in Palo Alto where I'm doing a signing on October 5 at 7:00 PM. Please come and bring friends. Let's start the back alley writing group soon.
