Home Again, Home Again. . .

Despite a brief stop at home I’ve been traveling since June 4th. I love to travel, and I had a terrific time at both events that I attended. However, two weeks (or thereabouts) seems to be my limit—at least for travel by automobile. I don’t remember being quite so glad to get home to peace…

The Reader Author Get Together (RAGT) 2014

I have to hand it to Lori Foster and her army of volunteers. They know how to run a readers conference. The conference, held every early June for the past ten years in West Chester OH, is small—deliberately so. Attendance is held to roughly 500 readers and 100 authors (I’m guestimating the numbers) and is…

Frolic and Fun, Fun, Fun

‘Tis the season for ‘fun and frolic.’ I’ll be frolicking, so to speak, at the RAGT in Cincinnati from June 5 – 8, 2014 (signing books on Saturday afternoon 6/7). I hope all of you can join me. I’ll be taking a select few to breakfast on Sunday 6/8. Click the large button to the left for more…

Writing Process Tag

Tag, I’m it–for today. I got tagged by Author Nancy Gideon to answer four questions about my writing process. Here’s a bit about Nancy whom I’ve known for many years.

The Stuff in My Office–4

Sometimes life gets in the way and not just of writing blog posts and novels. Take a look at the table (above) that sits next to my easy/reading chair (the chair’s picture is below). What a mess. Wish I could tell you that wasn’t normal. The truth is that much of my life is very…

The Stuff in My Office–3

No, we’re not done. Remember, I said I had 60+ years worth of stuff to tell you about (and you get to know me pretty well in the process). Today we move past the chotchskies (I’m not going to bother showing you the books; you can’t possibly see all of them at once, and there…

The Stuff in My Office–2

Remember that chotchskie shelf in my office? I still have eight items to tell you about. Four of them are butterfly art two shiny propped up against the back of the shelf and two flat yellow and black lying on the horizontal surface. The black one is really hard to see and looks more like…
