How A Scaredy Cat Wrote A Romantic Thriller

on May 27, 2020

I have a confession to make. I’m a big chicken. I’m the girl who checks the doors three times before bed to make sure they’re locked and made my husband get an alarm system because the golf club by my bed when he was away for work just wasn’t enough. I’ve never liked scary movies,… Read More

Write What You Know and Then Some

on May 13, 2020

As a writer, I’ve always been intrigued by topics above my pay grade. The more complicated, the more I seem drawn to a subject.

I ask my characters, “Who are you?”… Read More
