But I did have a bad episode some years ago - just couldn't think of anything creative to write about. Wrote some memoirs instead - and started painting again. It was some time before I found a story to get excited about - but haven't looked back since.(less)

Roy Stolworthy is clearly a born writer. His first novel, COMING HOME, is an excellent story told with great verve. I would have enjoyed it more, but poor editing in the Kindle edition was distracting. A shame, as the battle scenes were brilliantly d...more

“And I don't believe in such a thing as "happily ever after". There's only happily every now and then. I find the hardest trick is to recognize the now-and-thens, and to bask in them when they come. Happiness is a choice we make, like how to wear our hair, or having coffee with breakfast and tea at night.”
Cindy Bonner, The Passion of Dellie O'Barr
