I am a California valley girl rocker chick turned Texas super mom uber geek. I've been a musician and a singer in rock bands, the manager of an auto parts store, a systems engineer, a mom, a wife and the whole time I've been writing. Poems, songs, short stories, long stories, notes to teachers, shopping lists...

I thought about trying to bribe my son to write this profile for me because good God! How hard is it to write about yourself?

Anyway, the point is that I write. A lot. About anything and everything. I can't help myself. I carry around note books with me everywhere and have been known to pull off the highway during rush hour because if I don't get my thoughts down on paper my OCD will kick in and I'll nag myself until I do.

I don't co

So, after forty some odd years of writing half finished stories, songs for my bands and books for my kids I decided to sit down and actually try to put some stuff out there. Mostly to save my family from having to endure another revision but also because well...I just had to do it.

And now I'm sitting on my bed with seven little folders open and seven different sets of characters all screaming "... Read more of this blog post »

I can't even...no, really! I can't! Even!
Boots for the Gentleman by Augusta Li
"TL;DR: as full of promise as disappointment.

I feel betrayed by whoever edited this book. Even the author bios have subject-verb issues.

But then, when your authors appear to have been making shit up as they went along, there can't possibly be that..." Read more of this review »

“Oh God", Nate dropped his head down on the arm of the couch next to Si. "Has my love life really been reduced to talking to my cat about this?" Si just licked his whiskers and waited for Nate to start talking. So he did...”

“Caidi to Jacin: "Do you know why I love you?"

Jacin: "No."

Caidi: "Because you love so big, even when you don't want to. Because you can't help it. And because you need it back, but you don't know how to take it.”
Carole Cummings

“Malick to Jacin: "There is no trade anymore, you're not nothing, you didn't kill Caidi, you're going to be the most beautiful-dangerous Incendiary the gods have ever seen, and I fucking love you. Deal with it.”
Carole Cummings

“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

“O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales.”
Leo Rosten

“I wouldn't want to fuck you if you had a ten inch knob made of gold and your arsehole was the gate to Nirvana. I can't be friends with you because you're a gibbering twatwaffle, not because I would ever, in a million years, want to shag you. Get over yourself!”
FayJay, The Student Prince
