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…

Is Your Dog An Accurate Reflection of You?

Like it or not your dog is likely to be a good reflection of your own personality. How they behave when out in public or when you drop them off at your local dog day care services will also influence peoples first impressions of you. Studies have been done and the results bear it out - when a stranger encounters you and your four legged friend they will see certain behaviour and link it up to you. Whether…

EDITH, out in the World

At some point, one must say, “It’s finished.” I have punched the Publish button at Amazon.  Edith going to have to go it on her own from now on.

 

I’ve edited, re-read line-for-line and had friends point out typos. I’ve done some new formatting, centered the little trees at the beginning of chapters, and consistently double-spaced when the scenes change.

 

 I’ve researched the large number of anachronisms that snuck into the first drafts.  AIDs in 1974? Bubble tea…

Welcome Michael Draper, Author of Three Strikes and You're Dead

Restaurants and food have an important part in Three Strikes and You're Dead. I believe that a good book should appeal to the various senses – to see, as in well prepared food; to smell, where the aroma of food gets the stomach juiced flowing; and to taste, which is the icing…

FoodFic Look at "Firelight"

Jacinda’s got a lot going on. New town, new school, new friends: one of the plain old girl variety, one of the not-so-plain (and not-so-strictly-friend-zoned) boy variety. Everything in her life is different now…except her mom’s five-cheese macaroni with unique blend of herbs.
Of course,…

Religious Christmas cards & the British Public

Following a commotion by the Daily Mail a few years back, regarding the growing absence of religious imagery on Christmas cards in supermarkets, readers began to point out that Supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s or ASDA maintain healthy profits because they usually know what consumers want well in advance. Their stores are compact cultural signifiers, with all the food,…

BLESSINGS FLOWING Elaine TaylorBrown

Blessings Flowing

I can see where I am going

No one has to lead me

I can hear what people are saying

No one hands need feed me

At the end of a cold cold day

I have shelter too

I have legs to walk inside

And doors to go through

On my table there is bread

In my room there is a bed

In other words

I am more than blessed

My friend what about you

I can't complain although my flesh

Could find a lot of things

Money is tight… Continue
