I'd like to take a moment to call your attention to the blog post labels on the left hand side of this page. I try to categorize blog posts in ways that make sense so that readers can find the ones that interest them. You'll recognize some of these labels in the little dictionary I've written here.…Continue

You've finally found a reading "pal," a person you trust who answers all the burning questions you have about your manuscript, a person who has also published a little or a lot, who takes the kind of consideration with your manuscript that it needs to be "polished." You've given her your…Continue

Lucky me - last night I did a book signing event at Gatsby books in Long Beach, CA. On my way there, I began panicking thinking how no one would be there and the store owner would have gone to all this trouble for me to no avail. Happily about 10 people (and one cat) showed up, and politely allowed me to blabber on about my book. I sold several books (yay) but the money didn't give me the same satisfaction as the incredible validation of having people I'd never met before come out to support…Continue

You always hear people talk about the spark. Following the spark.
I suppose you could call it inspiration, as well. Either way, the results are similar. But where does this elusive spark come from? Some people believe it can come from the instruments we use, like having the best laptops or best pen and pad. Others believe it can't be found, that it can only find…Continue

Scribbled notes, bits of paper by the bed, all over the table, in handbags. Voice recordings taken in the rain when trying to soothe. Assorted computer files. Snatched moments never typed up, never crafted, edited, finished.
Deadlines draw near and then fly past. Another competition submission chance gone. I'll try again next year, I say before remembering I said that last year and back then my distractions were different ones.
Cabin fever, pacing, falling over playmats and…Continue

“To laughter that can awake the dead.”
Afternoons seem unbearably long these days. As I proceeded to fill today’s with cajoling the living room bookshelf out of its antique torpor buried in a cosy quilt of dust, I chanced upon an equally antique, long-forgotten copy of The Second Sex . Mites have devoured the ‘w’ and both the ‘d’s, nibbling on a few ‘t’s and the ‘n’. The 1988 you beyond that faded scrawl on the first blank page…Continue

Dear She Writers,
I can't believe that in about 3 weeks Oleander Girl will hit the bookstores!
Sometimes I'm elated when I think this; at other times I'm overwhelmed.
My brain is a constant flurry of trying to remember the million things that must be done before starting book tour--guest blog posts written, email interview questions answered, facebook entries made, friends in different cities informed of my events, flights and hotels booked, publicity questions handled,…Continue

He entered behind me shutting the door once he was in and I heard the locks engage.
My breathing stopped. What was I thinking? Locked in a car not only with a strange man in the backseat, but his rather large driver as well. He could take me anywhere. The two of them could easily overpower me.
My heart thumped in my chest and I tried not to look as frightened as I was feeling. I swallowed down the lump in my throat and took a deep breath. No one knew where I was, who I was…Continue
