Parenting post up!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest parenting adventure for you. Here’s a quick excerpt:

More than anything, I tried to soothe away my hurt with a good shampoo and rinse. Because it did hurt. Yes, I’m Thirteen and Eleven’s mother, but I’m also a person. I have likes and dislikes as much as anyone else. I have thoughts and opinions, hobbies and interests.

I have feelings.

Book review now up!

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! For a change I get to chat with you first thing in the day. I miss it! :>

I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on the thriller I Will Make You Pay by Teresa Driscoll. Here’s the opening to my post:

A journalist experiences extreme anxiety when a stalker sends her threatening messages. As the messages escalate in scope and type, she battles her fear as well as the looming questions of who would do this to her and why. Author Teresa Driscoll keeps readers guessing all the way to the last pages of her excellent novel, I Will Make You Pay.

On the road again…

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’m writing this blog post from the car. Still a little incredible that I can reach all of you from inside a moving vehicle (don’t worry, I’m not driving. I’m talented, but even my talents have their limits. :>) Our family traveled for this long weekend to Chicago and are on the way back.

Visiting the city always makes me think about my time there as a graduate student, and sometimes I can’t help wonder what my life would have been like if it had taken a different turn at one point or another. The possibilities; the challenges. The hopes and dreams that might have come from those alternate lives.

It’s one reason why I love my career in this creative field. Through my characters and their life choices, I have the opportunity to experience modes of life that I would never encounter otherwise. Those of you who also follow artistic paths know what I’m talking about.

To that end, here’s this week’s motivational quote:

“I write because I want to have more than one life.”—Anne Tyler

I’ve also posted this week’s short fiction. Because I went with micro fiction this week, I’m not going to give you an excerpt. I would, however, encourage you to check it out on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

On Wednesday I’ll share a brand new book review with you. Last week saw the release of the thriller I Will Make You Pay by Teresa Driscoll. Find out what I thought of the book in a couple of days on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Finally, at the end of the week, I’ll post a new segment in my parenting adventures. Find out more on Friday on Growth Chart!

Have a lovely week, readers!
