school parties, crocodile rows.


she said there was an accident

waiting to happen on the stairs,


while others marched shouting,

little roman soldiers.


i hid in the auditorium and

checked the spelling.


seems that romans could

operate on people’s heads.


boring holes.

it belongs to three people i think,

or is that imagination.


anyway she says sometimes they have

birds of prey at the cathedral which

escape and kill the pigeons on their

roof. that is why although it is all

now exposed due to damp, it will be



blood drips.






. overheard too.

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?

[SWP: Behind the Book] My Journey to Publishing An Address in Amsterdam: How the story of Amsterdam’s Jews became mine

Debut novelists are warned not to treat our books as if they were prized, long-awaited babies.  I’m guilty as charged – but, after all, I spent 13 years researching and writing and rewriting An Address in Amsterdam.  It’s the story of a young Jewish…See More
