About "Cleans Up Nicely"

One of my favorite plays is Michael Frayn's wildly antic Noises Off - the title an expression used about sounds coming from offstage that affect the play's performance.  While the play is being performed, the "real" action backstage threatens to topple what is happening onstage.  Real life: drama, melodrama, tears, belly-laughs, trumps the artificial.…

The Gift of a New Year

Luke 6:38

Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


Here we are at the close of another year. I always feel sort of giddy as Father Time transports me into another New Year. Looking back there have been hard times, and sad happenings, but the good things of life far outshine the bad. I am…

Toni Morrison and Me

I tend to talk about Toni Morrison with a cautious blitheness. I mention how we share the same hometown, Lorain, Ohio, but even that’s a scary thing to do. Why would I want to invite comparisons to a Nobel and Pulitzer prizewinning author? Such a thought would send most writers under their desks, possibly holding a thick reference book over their…

Finished Novel

Book Cover

I finished my novel today and I'm feeling excited, proud, sad and appreciative.  This novel is based on four diaries I was given by my mother-in-law.  They were her cousin's who lived in Washington, D.C. from 1942 to 1945.  I created the cover art and I want to self publish in order to get it out…

Back to Work

It feels so good to be sitting here in front of my computer this morning. For the past four months I’ve been playing grandma to my granddaughter and travel companion to my hubby. What an awesome, busy, whirlwind of a life I’ve experienced these past few months. Starting the summer off in late May my nephew, Luke marries his high school sweetheart, and another nephew, Wesley announces he and his lovely wife are going to be proud new parents in late October. Not to mention my niece, Andi tells…

Thumb Rules of Hiring a Right Criminal Defense Attorney in New York

Finding a right criminal defense attorney New York leaves us in cold feet. However, it is not as hard as we think. The New York criminal justice system is complex and complicated, which allows a wrongdoer to take an opportunity to serve the society, if he or she can show an improvement in his morality.  …

"A Memoir is Not a Status Update" - New Yorker article by Dani Shapiro

I was blown away by Dani Shapiro's exquisite article on memoir writing in this week's New Yorker.  She writes of the Facebook era, where so much is shared online - and makes the point that: "In order to write a memoir, I've sat still inside the swirling vortex of my own complicated history like a piece of old driftwood, battered by the sea." No instant gratification swirls over us writers as we create our stories; instead we "turn out small, personal sorrows and individual tragedies…

O is for Ottawa Ontario

 This will be the biggest stretch I’ve made, sorry.  Would you believe there is only one country that begins with the letter “O?” Can you guess it? I’ll give you a second…. Oman. I knew this because several of my awesome students are from there. I did not, however, know it was the only one. So I shall write to you about Canada, specifically, kind of, Ottawa Ontario, for which I feel I should receive bonus…

How I Learned to Type



In high school, I earned an A in Mr. Finn’s typing despite the fact that at the end of the year I was still using the hunt and peck method. My mother, who had worked as a secretary until my younger sister’s birth, typed all my papers starting in fourth grade through high school. When I…

The Dilemma of the Middle-Aged Woman Who Writes

Do you like to read and write about characters who resemble you now or look more like the person you were 20 years ago? 

This question is prompted by the following from a January NYT column by Fay Weldon. In it, she says:

“Yet older women make up the bulk of the fiction market,” my [middle-aged female] student will protest. “How odd that they don’t want to read about themselves!”

“They do,” I…

Camper Crazy

Philippians 4:11

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.


Do you ever get a notion in your head that you’ve just got to have something? Maybe a new car or sofa. What about a big screen TV? A new house, condo…

[Making the Leap] Fear Not!

I have had great fun this week reading multiple blog posts about making resolutions, avoiding resolutions, or setting themes for the coming year. I've also read a lot of articles about the benefits or harm of setting goals-- how they can lead the way, provide inspiration or, alternately, become a painful source of…
