Undertow This Summer

    Sometimes I call UNDERTOW the Little Blue Book That Could because it keeps landing on lists years after it launched (not that I’m complaining). Of course, then my friends remind me that the sucker weighs close to a pound and is nearly 100,000 words long, so “little” ain’t so little. Pfft – details. […]

In Defense of Insta-Love

I do three things when I’m trolling the aisles of heaven (re: bookstore), searching for a few new books to burn my paycheck on: Seek out a kick-ass cover. Read the back jacket. Read the first page . . . and maybe the Goodreads reviews. Let me tell ya – I’ve learned one thing about Goodreads […]

High School Reunions – Go or No?

I’m elderly. Did you know that? Because I bloody well didn’t realize this horrible fact until I was faced with my 20 year high school reunion. It was like a face-plant to a sliding glass door. Twenty YEARS? Where the hell did TWENTY YEARS go? I mean, I could have sworn we were just being […]

The Write Space

The other day my daughter came into my office (okay – more like a walk-through, jammed between my kids’ bedrooms and our great room) and said, “Wow – your office looks worse than my locker.” Ummm . . . why yes. Yes, it does. Which got me thinking (no, not about cleaning it). I thought […]

Self-Published Marketing

Another writer once asked me why, OH WHY, did I bother with live models? They asked, “Isn’t that time-consuming? Expensive? What if the photos don’t come out right? What if the models don’t understand their characters’ emotions?” The questions went on and on . . . I simply responded, “Well, first of all, what would […]

Bus Driving . . . and why it requires insanity.

So I have come to the realization that I am stupid. No, no – seriously. I mean, my current M-F job (plus some weekends, when my mouth turns mutinous and blurts out, “Yeah – I’ll drive the team!”) is as a school bus driver. No, not the small suckers that had the butt bitten off […]

All Around the Town: Tales from Bus Driver Hell

It is possible that I have been asked to write a Bombeckesque memoir about being a bus driver at least fifty times. And yes – the tales from the road could fill an encyclopdeia. But I am a professional writer (and driver) and believe it or not, my time is somewhat squeezed. So yes – […]

Burning the Candle at both ends . . . with a blowtorch!

So, I have not fallen off the face of the earth (at least, I don’t think so. Sometimes I question my sanity and hence, my reality). Anywho, life has been BUSY. Driving the beast, shuffling kids, juggling boobs – I mean, breastfeeding questions –  and, as always, writing. Journalism assignments keep me busy as does […]
