   After touring England, Scotland and Ireland, I attended the  Historical Novel Society Writer's Conference in London September 5-7, 2014. "Lovely," as they say to be the only American in the top 6 finalists to receive an award for my historical short story "The Holdup".   



Of course, I'm the one in the new baseball hat -- from Scotland. Verra cool! 
  Returned home to find a book contract offer from The Wild Rose Press. Kissing the Blarney Stone paid off! Begorra!

The Booger Chair Comes Clean!




  It rocks, it swivels, it began life as an orange tweed baby-rocking perch and grew into a re-covered family legend--after I learned about its nickname from my oldest daughter. Nestled in a bright corner of our living room, it has become the creative writing throne for the family author who today finished her newest novel, "Mitawin."  No Fooling!  This blog is for the legion of fans who asked to see where a masterpiece is born.

(Yes, it is hard to comprehend that so much that is so good can come from such a small place.  Of course, the rest of my home is somewhat neater than this. You know what they say about creative minds!)

WATCH THIS SITE FOR EXCERPTS FROM "The Accidental Wife".  A Chicago WC is on the agenda this month.

Deer Feeding Time at Mount Pegasus


When the Deer run out of corn
they go for the bird feeder.
