And they lived happily ever after...

    "......................and they lived happily ever after.”

                                This is my favorite part of every book. During my childhood, whenever I get a book, I just turn to the last page and search for this phrase... and what more to say... I wont even look at it again if this part were missing. Its not just me. ..each one of us want a happy ending to every story we hear. Our life too will turn out into a story one day and unlike fairy…

A Tale of Love

Clandestine mornings. Passionate nights

Teary conversations. Desperate times

Tales of love. Epics of Deceit

A walk by the lake reliving memories.

Together they dreamt of the future unseen

A chalet by the river, patter of…

How You (Yes, You) Can Find Time to Write

Maybe you’ve got a day job. Maybe you’ve got kids. Yet you have aspirations to write that novel. Your problem is that you’re not sure when you can make the time.

It’s a common dilemma, and one I’ve spent the past few years studying. From 2013-2014, for a book I wrote called I Know How She Does It, I…

Impact of High School on Adult Life? Research for Current Writing Project

“When you get to be our age, you all of a sudden realize that you are being ruled by people you went to high school with … You all of a sudden catch on that life is nothing but high school.” Or so Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., said, referring to the words of a fellow Indianapolis grad. (Taken from Times article,9171,2076739-1,00.html) Is this true? Are we determined by…

The 5 seasons of life: where do you see yourself?

How many seasons will we each go through?

No one ever really knows…we have seasons that seem to come as quickly as they came and others that seem to last forever.  Some seasons we never imagined that they would come and yet they end up changing us forever.  Even others come and we do not realize the impact they leave until something years later, triggers a memory.

Our lives are built on seasons — the coming and going of people, events, and places.  We are surrounded by the…

What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.

I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.

I spent my entire college career living in an all-female dorm as a Resident Assistant. Each year, I saw young women being victimized and victimizing other women. Sometimes, all it took was a single tweet and a resident would pack up… Continue

I is for Island Life

I’m not sure where exactly my affinity for islands came from. Perhaps it started while growing up in Hawaii, or perhaps my being a Pisces has something to do with it. Who knows? What I do know, is that islands have been a significant part of my life for a very long time and that the longer I am on an island the…

[SWP: Behind the Book] Serendipity? Luck? My money is on the message.

When I handed the medical transcriptionist the Ziploc bag containing eight micro-cassettes, she gave me the raised index finger, “Wait a sec, I’ll be right back,” sign.

“We’ll have to get the machine out of the back closet, but I think we can find someone to get these done for you.”

I’d been dictating hospice memories into a hand-held Dictaphone for the last fifteen years. Stop lights, waiting at drive thru's, sitting in the park; I burned to document these stories…

Death Before Dawn, Part Three

What you will read below is a short story in process. Like a film, I've shot all the scenes and written most of the sections deliberately out of sequence. They will be conjoined later, once I have the material I need. Last month I wrote Parts One and Two. To follow is Part Three, but this will probably end up being placed later in the text. Muses aren't always linear.

To remind you, should you wish to read, here is …
