Who’s Pointing at Whom?

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead to a deeper understanding of ourselves.”

– Carl Jung

What does this mean? It means that everything that irritates you about other people, including loved ones, your partner, family…

Good Evening!

Adjust a little- of things are not going as planned. Don’t bang your head against the wall and say something like “why me?” That’s really not going to do anything for you.

Instead, take a look at the situation. What could you do a little differently? How can you adjust to make…

Welcome Guido Henkel, Author of HUNTED

Food plays such an elemental part of our lives that I am often surprised how little of it is shown in fiction, and even in movies or TV shows. I mean, after all, didn’t we just have breakfast, and then lunch, and now we’re eating again? There are days when it feels that our…

Writing: The Enemy of Mindfulness?

I meditate, but only for 10-minute stints, and I don't do it every day.  I’m a very sporadic and inconsistent yogi. I've never been to an ashram and probably never will.


Yet, I claim to live a (sorta) mindful life.   I can sit in traffic or get horribly lost and…

Asked for an Introductory Post

I was asked to start a blog about my writing experience. To be honest, I probably will not be writing a detailed and consistent blog. I'm really busy with writing, though I might post some of my thoughts or experiences.

I began writing in German at age six. I would sit down next to my mom and tell her a story. I would just make it up on the spot. I once thought up a three-minute rhyme and couldn't remember it when I started to write it down. That was my one foray into poetry. While I…

Welcome Back Luke Murphy, Author of Kiss & Tell

I remember when I first started writing—the moment I decided to get serious about writing, to write with a purpose. When I first decided that I wanted to write with the intention of seeking publication, I bought a couple of books on the craft of writing to help improve my style.

How to Write a Book Review

As most of you know, I’ve recently launched my second novel, MISTS OF BAYOU RHYNE. Yes, thank you, thank you. :) And as most of you know, one of the hardest – but oh so important – things to get is a review. I’ve been told over and over again how much a reader has enjoyed my book, how they can’t wait for the next, and how they wish they could share it with everyone they know. Well, you my dear reader,…

Feng Shui + Charlotte nightingale Cover Reveal

Carter Oosterhouse and Pam

An HGTV show called Red, Hot and Green remodeled my bathroom when I lived in L.A. The big “reveal” was exciting and horrifying all at the same time. What if it was ugly? What if I didn’t like it? How would I mask my disappointment in front of the cameras, and more importantly, in front of the smokin’ hot host of the show, Carter Oosterhouse? (See photo to the…

On Intimacy with Experience

Would love to have you like my page on Huff Po. This is how they retitled my piece On Intimacy with Experience. I learn from this that they like titles which are unambiguous and promise a lesson for the reader.…

As a woman you need to prioritize

As someone running a small, successful and well-known business in the town where I live, I often have young and older women alike coming up to me and asking me the secret of my successful work-life balance. I feel good that these women consider me as someone who can dispense them with good advice but many times it becomes a bit overwhelming too. I feel like telling them, “It’s heart-warming that you are sharing your troubles with me, but I can assure you that I still haven’t figured out life…

Welcome John Dolan, Author of A Poison Tree

OK, this is going to be tricky. Unlike my wife Fiona – who is a complete foodie – I tend to view food the same way a car looks at petrol: fuel to get me through the day. Fiona tells me I’m an utter Philistine on matters nutritional, and I’m sure she’s right (she usually is). If I could simply…

[SWP: Behind the Book] A Chinese Artist Steps Out

The two biggest surprises that came from writing my memoir, Red Eggs and Good Luck, was announcing I was a visual artist to the world and sharing my Chinese heritage with others.

Prior to writing Red Eggs and Good Luck, I was a closet artist. My need to capture the world in images remained a secret until I met my husband, who was an artist. In his presence, I felt safe. At night, I would work alongside him as he finished his assignments. Sometimes my work turned out…

Life in the Woods

It's so dramatic living in an old house the woods, what with fighting off all the vermin. You have squirrels, mice, rats in the house, and/or garage, and/or attic, and you try everything possible to evict them--and too keep them from tearing down all your insulation, gnawing all the value out of your property before they leave. I always think that if my cat were the size of a mountain lion, she would be terrifying and I'd put her out. Thank God rats and mice are just pea-brained…

When Your Truth Hurts.... Others

It's been an interesting week to say the least. My book, Tales From the Family Crypt is out and is selling pretty briskly. So that's exciting. But it is a memoir of my very dysfunctional extended family, some of whom are still alive. Those are the same people who caused all of the dysfunction so you can imagine seeing their true story in print (or, as the case may be, in a Kindle) didn't make them wildly happy. Some have posted…
