Joseph Grammer Joseph Grammer's blog:
Oftentimes I straight-up want to die. Why is that? I have a good life, a woman who loves me, a family who pays for my cell phone and even my groceries, more times than I'd ordinarily like to admit.

I guess I've learned by this point it's just a mental thing (wow, good job Joe, you only majored in... Read more of this blog post »

When I told my husband I want to write this article his reaction was: “Whoa, baby, mine-field ahead!” But I’m a mother and a writer. Therefore, I am brave. So I ventured into the arena.

I come in peace.

I happened to befriend this outgoing, bubbly mom. Our children attend the same school. We always... Read more of this blog post »

If you ‘re always in a rush, maybe you should try reading short stories—literature for people on the go.

Short stories are difficult to define. In 1846, Poe defined a short story as prose fiction that could be read in “one sitting.” The problem is “one sitting” is probably shorter now than then. H... Read more of this blog post »

Readers often ask me where I get the ideas for my books. As many writers can attest, stories can come at us from many different angles. Sometimes it’s a snippet of a conversation we overhear that intrigues us. Every once in a while, we’re inspired in a general way by someone we’ve met. And freque... Read more of this blog post »
