Freedom Isn't Free

There are all types of freedom. It starts as simple as when you are a young child and granted the freedom to stay up later in the summertime when school is out. As the year’s progress and you get older you gain more and more independence, especially when you turn sixteen and get your drivers license. Now that’s really freedom. Then there comes the freedom to make choices. What will be my major in college? How will I make a living? Will I live in the old hometown or move away? Who will I…

Launch of New UK Romance Novel 1st July

When I began to write Goodbye, Henrietta Street I had no confidence in myself as a writer; I only did it as a challenge to see if anything was possible! 

With much hard work and an understanding husband, I finally completed writing it in 2012. After eight years I had learned how to be a writer.  Within six months I had a publisher, not just one publisher but three! It all happened very quickly after submitting my manuscript; a situation I had least expected. This provided me…

Open-Air Worship

As Independence Day approaches I can’t help but think about how much freedom I have. I come and go as I please. I have a hearty garden full of vegetables to cook or I can choose to dine out. Sometimes I listen to the radio, other times I flip through a couple of hundred different channels on the television. I can travel in a car, by plane, and train, ride a bike, or walk. I have the freedom to bear arms if I so choose and speak my mind. Or, I can pen about anything I want to in this blog. We…

May The Fourth Be With You!

After watching the 4th of July debauchery in California's South Bay, we decided to make a mocumentary. The budget was small -- just a green screen, two lattes, and a sweet and low.

A Servants Heart

The 4th of July is drawing near, Independence Day. Not just a time for fun and fireworks, but also a day to remember those who serve so we may remain free. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. As I sit typing I am in a nice cool home. I have clean water to drink and plenty of food to eat. I’m not afraid to walk out my door in shorts or speak up in church. I can carry a weapon if I have the correct permit and no…

Unconvential Ways to Combat Writer's Block

So every now and then I get stuck.  There I am, pen and paper in hand or maybe I'm sitting before my laptop and the words just won't come. Ugh! If you're a writer or artist of any kind then you know exactly what I'm talking about.



There are lots of ways to overcome the creative block, but one of the most fun and unusual methods comes from the quirky duo… Continue

Writing under the gun

I am completing day 9 of a NaNoWriMo for July. I can definitely see the advantage of doing this in November when EVERYONE is doing it. As a first-time fiction writer, here is one thing I've learned so far doing this novel in 30 days project: don't write a plot that contains history that must be verified! I have part of my story happening in Russia during the Moscow Theatre hostage crisis. So that means I have to get certain dates and facts right because it is a fairly recent event (2002). Why… Continue

Found Writers: How My Great Aunt Celebrated July 4th

Harriet One of my current projects that is giving me greater joy and satisfaction than I ever could have imagined is transcribing my great aunt’s diaries, which she kept daily from January 1, 1920 through the middle of 1957, the year before she died. For this holiday weekend, I thought you might enjoy these posts from July 4 from various years. All of them were written from her farm and ranch in Hidden Timber, South Dakota, on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

Day One of the July NaNoWriMo

I was very pleased to find out that there is a hashtag on twitter for #JulNoWriMo which means I'm not the ONLY person in the world trying to write a novel in 30 days during the month of July. Yay! Yesterday I bought a wrist support (am I a big baby or what?) and some of those warming pads in case my wrist hurts---usually just the right one. I also ate fairly healthy today, ate some carrots, ordered out dinner from a middle eastern restaurant and, of course had a candy bar and finished off a… Continue

"The writing is going very well amidst crazed preparation for Halloween, which is a big deal when you have little kids. A friend who once told me she only reads the parts of novels that have dialogue, and skips over those that have none (like…"

"Hi Sakki! Have to say I love the nickname! I bet there's an interesting story behind it. I agree with your assessment of Sedona; much as I enjoy the arts, they are quite clannish. But I suppose the same could be said for writers - ha! My…"
