Merry Christmas!

I would like to take the time to Share the Gift of Christmas with you. This is a season of love and kindness, a time to show others that we care about them more than they realize. Why do we want to do better at Christmas time? I believe it stems from the Birth of the Savior. "He is the Gift" given to us from a loving Heavenly Father.

Russell M. Nelson said, "Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God’s sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the…

Just Try It

Just try it…being nice first. Just try a smile or listen and say “I understand” instead  of just  talking over somebody else.

Do a favor for someone without being asked to do it. And don’t expect anything in return.

See and feel how different it feels from being indifferent or even cold to another.…

A Grateful Writing Life

I am waiting. It’s a common activity for writers. You work on a piece of writing. You finish it. You send it somewhere. You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait. Ideally you work on more writing while you wait.…

My story PERSONALS in The Stockholm Review of Literature

I am always amazed to receive a reminder of how small our world really is: via overseas travel, conversation with a foreign visitor, a special event featuring a foreign of immigrant creative, a translated book on the shelf. And, foreign journals…

Loving What You Write

I was walking around my yard in a bit of a daze. The day before I had finished the novel revision I’d been working on for months. Like the crazy woman I am, instead of resting I was trying to organize my thoughts for the next novel. But I felt like I didn’t know how to steady myself in the real world after being in my previous novel’s world…

Planning a Book Launch: Launch Day!

It happened! That day that loomed up ahead for almost a full year, that long-awaited, exhilarating day took place. In the days leading up to it, people asked me if I was nervous, and I looked at them funny, wondering why they were asking such a thing. Little by little, their…

Writing Markets to Avoid -- And 5 Ways To Spot Them

I still remember that summer afternoon when my mother came upstairs to find me weeping into my pillow.  I was 20 years old, and I had just discovered that my boyfriend had been two-timing me. Of course, I told my mother the edited, sanitized version of the story, leaving out that part about me walking into his apartment to find him in bed with his ex-girlfriend.   

I also remember my mother’s advice: “You should be choosier about the company you keep,” she said. “Pick…

Do-Over at the Smooching Pond

Do you ever look back at your life and think, “If I could only do that over?” There are lots of things in life that you can do over. A bad haircut will grow out and you can start all over again with a new style. A golf shot can be done over, and over again, likewise with a tennis volley, or basketball shot. You get to try again and again.


Unfortunately, there are some things that can’t be fixed with a do-over. What about spiteful words spoken about someone? You can’t take…

She Writes/She Reads: Women and the New World of Publishing

The question of who gets to be a storyteller and of whose stories are read and acknowledged is crucial—not just for women, but for men and for the way civil society as a whole is constructed.

The “She Writes” in my title alludes to two things—my publisher, She Writes Press, and…
