It’s been a long time…

I've taken some time away from blogging. The reason? I was never sure it was reaching that many people and I didn't think that it had any import on my book sales. I've been rethinking a lot over the last month or so. It started when my father passed away. I was numb,...

Processing….

I just finished the book Fifty Words for Rain and it still resonates...and I'm trying to figure out why. The story speaks to the Japanese culture back in the early 1900's. Nori, the main character, was born out of wedlock in a time when death should have been her...

How well do I know my characters, you ask…

Better than I know myself at times. They become friends over time, and as with anyone you befriend in life, it takes time and attention to grow kinship. It takes interest, intent and curiosity. The relationship with my characters begins with the conception of an idea....

Tuesday Tales

I've been listening to audio books for years now and I recently picked up Brian Wilson's autobiography. I listened to the Beach Boys back in the day, and he'd been maligned over the years and I wanted to hear his story. I didn't realize how much I'd like it. So much...
