Envy the Rich? Wait Until You See Their Wallpaper!
Growing up in the Litchfield Hills I was an avid audience to a great many humorous moments. I was part of a wonderful family, living in horrific winter weather that made me feel like I was constantly starring in Kramer vs. Kramer, in a small unheard-of New England town. This community was filled with…Continue

May December romances are usually between older men and younger women. Men want women who can breed, and young women want security (read: big...huge....wallet).
Maybe it's not such a bad idea, age difference in relationships. My daughters make me cry with their dating…Continue

It occurred to me the other day that my three major writings, a full-length play called “My Lady’s Hand”, a novel “Riversong”, and my current manuscript titled, “Duet For Three Hands” are all about the same thing. A devastating tragedy occurs, leaving my main characters hopeless, lost, terribly sad and with no choice but to start again, which they do.
One doesn’t have to spend too much time with a therapist to understand why.
It was the mid-nineties. My mother was fifty, at…Continue
The other day I walked past the house where we lived until I was five and was surprised all over again. No matter how many times I've visited it as an adult, I always forget that it is green now, not the white I remember. And the back yard that stretched an unimaginable distance now seems no more than a patch of grass with a few bushes around the edges. Even the tree that once held the bees that stung all of us during a memorable picnic lunch is gone. I remember my mother hanging sheets in…Continue

No, I’m not talking about Rodney Dangerfield’s movie Back to School, but I did love that flick. It was so funny. I am however heading back to school next month, but only for three days. The nice folks down in Carteret County have invited me to share with their middle and high school students a little about my novel, Guardian Spirit. I am so honored to be able to share my story with young people. I sometimes wonder if I would have been more determined to become a published…Continue

There sometimes is no way to truly accept something but by learning it the hard way. I have been there and know while I would have much preferred to have these brilliant facts of life simply slip into my being without experiencing the sometimes awkward and often painful acknowledgment of their truths, I am at least relieved to know I have learned these at last.
1. WE ARE CREATED TO FORGIVE
It is far easier to hold a grudge but far more painful…Continue

Not only did the latest installment of my favorite mystery series teach me what a phillumenist is (I'll wait while you look it up), it also spurred me to rearrange my destination wish list (for all those "someday" trips) by bumping an Alaskan cruise up to 4th place. (Israel's still number one.) Plus the story provided a grand adventure with an exciting climax!

When I first moved to Hawaii, I was quite impressed with the amount and quality of jewelry that many of the older Hawaiian women wore. It was not uncommon to see four or five solid gold bracelets and three or more golden necklaces adorning their arms and necks. I was curious as to why these pretty women had to wear so…Continue

We watch with horror events unfolding in libya. A woman who was beaten and carted away by plainclothes security officials after she told journalists she had been brutally gang-raped by Gaddafi 's militiamen remained missing Sunday even as she became a worldwide symbol of defiance against the regime.
A government official said Iman Obeidi was safe, free and with her family but provided no proof to back up his statement. The Libyan official, Musa Ibrahim, described the woman as a single…Continue

“When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision – then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” – Audre Lorde
Owning my voice and knowing my unique place in the world is something I’ve struggled with for many years. I know this is something that many of us deal with and I believe part of the problem has to do with living into pre-defined roles and expectations set by society, culture, our families, and even ourselves. …

Publishing news on the Web is mainly a copycat, me-too proposition, fertilized with very little original news-gathering. Thus, though newsletters and websites about publishing and the ebook phenomenon abound, the stories tend to merely repeat what another site or newsletter has already said (change a few words and publish it as your own story). That's why the names of self-published novelists Amanda Hocking and JA Konrath are currently popping up all over the Web as examples of…Continue
