My birthday is almost here.

This year, there is only one thing I want. My husband and my kids can’t give it to me, but my awesome readers can. The best part of all is that it would cost less than three dollars and it’s the one gift that would make me happiest to receive. Any guesses?

Katherine Flannery Dering Katherine Flannery Dering's blog:

K.S. Villoso K.S. Villoso's blog:

I absolutely love reading novels when the writer has an idea of flow and rhythm in their work. I’m not big on flowery words or descriptions myself, but flow–ah, if a writer can make his or her prose sound like poetry, I’m sold.



Unfortunately, it’s one of those things about writing that is just so...

I’ve kissed a lot of boys.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I was pretty darn cute in high school. What? I was! I think most boys liked me, though, because I was down-to-earth, approachable, and I liked to crack jokes and be myself. In turn, I also didn’t just like certain boys over others because t...

Press Release----

While Jennifer Lang’s ‘The Whistle-Blower’s Confession’ may read like a wildly-imaginative movie, its narrative is shockingly true.

Bucket, Beach


The term “bucket list” was popularized by the 2007 movie of that name. It’s an inventory of things people want to do before they “kick the bucket.” The idea is, since our time on earth is limited, if something is important for us to do, we have to do it now, because this is our only chance to do...
