What I Know Could Fill...

There's a rumor that writers have to pay to have their books placed at the front of a brick-and-mortar bookstore. Maybe this is true in some cases, at some places, and certainly I assumed…

It’s all part of the modern condition, more and more of us want to live on our own driving property prices up and the amount of square footage you can get for your money down. It might take a pinch more imagination and a dash of careful design, but living in a small house or flat doesn’t mean that you can’t live in style!

Optical Illusions

We all know that the eye and with it people’s perceptions can be fooled. There are a couple of surprisingly simple techniques…

[SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK] A penance. A blessing. A deadline.

In anticipation of writing this blog post for BEHIND THE BOOK, I immediately sat down and wrote a whole craft essay instead. More of a memoir, actually. About waitressing. It really did apply, at least to much of this process. I wrote about being “in the weeds,” an old restaurant workers’ term for being too busy to…

This means that…

FoodFic Look at "Shards and Ashes"

Asking me as a writer to choose one short story from an anthology to blog about it almost as difficult as asking me as a parent to name my favorite child! So let me begin by saying that since this collection brings together the work of pretty much every big writer in YA today, every piece…

5 Reasons I’m Unqualified To Teach My Preschooler About Her Private Parts

I recently read a blog post about how important it is to teach toddlers about their body parts. Apparently, simply knowing the correct words for male and female genitals deters predators who know that these children will be more able to report being touched inappropriately.

Cut to me sweating profusely.  My daughter is almost four, and unless ‘front hiney’ and ‘back hiney’ are the…

Signing Books at Barnes and Noble

Signing books at Barnes and Noble in Bakersfield on Saturday was not a champagne affair, it was business. The friendly staff prepared a book table for me and told me I could sit behind the table, stand and do a meet and greet (my style) or…

Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Should I send my estranged mother a card for Mother’s Day?


“Hearing him talk about his mother, about his intact family, makes my chest hurt for a second, like someone pierced it with a needle.” 

― Veronica Roth

The thing about Mother’s Day is everyone’s relationship with their mother is in our face. Our nose is rubbed in “intact relationships” and it can hurt to know that we don’t have that. When we…

Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Aunties of the heart, our “other” mothers

“Women without children are also the best of mothers, often, with the patience, interest, and saving grace that the constant relationship with children cannot always sustain. Women who are not mothering their own children have the clarity and focus to see deeply into the character of children webbed by family. A child is fortunate who feels witnessed as a person, outside relationships with parents by another adult.” ― Louise Erdrich

Theme of the Week: Motherhood – Estranged From My Children, Alienated From Myself

regret I was a child who hadn’t been loved, and who had had no family relations of love and intimacy. So I probably thought to myself that, finally, I was going to have a child and would have this wonderful unconditional loving relationship.

But this child was his mother’s victim, I was a totally incompetent mother, because I, myself, was an abused child from a problematic…

FoodFic Look at "The Here and Now"

April 23rd just came and went. Now, for me that didn’t mean a whole lot – soccer practice for one kid, baseball for the other, baked haddock for dinner in-between.
For Prenna James, however, April 23rd is a very special anniversary. It marks the date she and…

Iconic: The camera was used to take this picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in New York's Times Square

(Iconic: Photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt's image of an impulsive sailor kissing a woman he did not know in New York's Times Square to celebrate Japan's surrender in 1945, became one of the most iconic of the 20th century. The Leica IIIa rangefinder he used sold for…
