. window steamed .

we have been to montgomery

again. it is a pretty place, bunting

across the square, so by the open

window, with fresh scones, we talked,

listened to the quiet. narrow walls,

bricked faces. there is a church

of course for leaving useless requests

and confirming friends. it may

be that i have no photograph.

yet will add a photograph.

Characters Welcome

That's the slogan of the USA Network on American TV. However, it also became something of my own personal catch-phrase, as both a writer and artist — and yes, even as a fan.

The Dutch royals spend a lot on a fence

We all know that the royals are extremely rich but they still get criticized every time they spend a lump sum of money for unnecessary luxuries. The reason behind that is that in most cases they just spend the taxpayer’s money rather than their own. This is the case with the brand new fence for the holiday home of Queen Maxima…

Ugh, I'm an idiot!

While Ella was editing Lucas Story, I began prewriting the third book in my Trihune Series. I was in the midst of detailing Sarid’s character with my handy, dandy character sheets (see post here) when inspiration hit.

For months, in the back of my mind, questions had prowled regarding a new character’s power. I had no idea what his power would be, just that it had to be strong and undetectable.

Suddenly it hit. I figured it…

Give It a Try

Give it a try…a new situation. Let me give you an example.

Many years ago, right after my divorce. I wanted to meet someone new, but I just wasn’t looking in the right places. And so, one day I picked up this little magazine called the “”Selling Post” Okay, it sold mostly farm equipment, but on the back page…

is it wrong?

I am extrememly upset right now.  I mean, come on.  I don't even know how I am friends with some of you.  (not you, my 3D friends) You don't read.  That is a deal breaker in my book.  Hell, I forced my husband to read.  

Literally made him read till he found a genre that he liked.  But it paid off in the long run cause we can talk to each other about our likes and dislikes.  I can't carry on a conversation with you when all you want to speak about is Kimye. Who the hell is kimye?  Oh…
