Just Sex Please, Part II, an erotic, interracial romance featuring a 40-something BBW (big, beautiful woman) has just been published. Of the new release, the author says:
I had no intention of writing a sequel when I first wrote this short, erotic romance. But the first one landed in the Top 100 in a couple of categories on Amazon (Divorce / Erotic), so I felt like it hit some kind of nerve. Also, I got emails specifically asking for a sequel. I think the novel hit some…Continue

Until a few days ago I was in a funk, missing B across the hall and also going through a rough patch with the chapter in my novel. Now B's family have cleared out her apartment, her memorial service has been held, and I am picking up my own life again. And I'm moving ahead with the chapter that was giving me trouble.
It's still the chapter about Mississippi Freedom Summer (1964) and most importantly how the pov character Sophie and her co-workers in the Adult Education Center…Continue

First, a short update: B is away this afternoon, seeing a doctor, so that means she's up and about. I'll try to catch her later this afternoon. And now another neighbor down the hall is in distress; she is moving to the third floor, assisted living. She is 98. Her daughter told me it is time, though M is "mad as a hornet" about the move and having her son and daughter clear out her apartment, which she doesn't want to leave. I empathize with her. In the process of writing these blog entries,…Continue

I used to be a Birthcenter nurse and work with the nurse-midwives in a major San Diego hospital. Now I write books and design houses. I miss delivering babies with the midwives more than I can say. It’s the most mystical, amazing, rewarding work I’ve ever done. Part of my heart still feels broken, but I’ve found an excellent…Continue
I am often asked, “How do you come up with your stories? Is it hard to think of something to write about?” What most people don’t understand is that we are living a story everyday. Each month and year adds more chapters.
As with most writers I crave moments alone so I can write down my thoughts, or the notions from the characters that are dancing around in my head. However, spending time around others, listening and watching is where the guts of my stories come from. I am…Continue

This entire self-publishing journey I’ve been on since 2012 has been frustrating, cathartic, satisfying. When I first started, I had no clue what I was doing–I just jumped in and hoped for the best. Now you can take classes and learn the ‘right’ way to do it. I kind of like learning by…Continue
