The hardest thing for me to do, changes, and finally getting to finish!

description
I think the hardest thing to do as an author – and, if I’m being completely honest, as a person – is to focus on just one thing and see it through to completion. I always seem to get distracted by different projects, different stories, even when I’m neck-deep in working on one that I have a deadl... Read more of this blog post »

No meetings today. Everything is cancelled because of the snow storm. So, I slept in. Now I'm eating ice cream and mixing my own top secret very very special one of a kind turquoise paint, that no other artist knows how to make. Yeah...

Beauty in the Rain

The misty veil was momentarily lifted to let in a few golden rays. But dark and foreboding clouds quickly moved in to shield off what little sunlight there was. The northern gust picked up and churned the lake’s surface into tiny billows. At a distance, a lone bass boat hurriedly skimmed the turb... Read more of this blog post »

The pitfalls of getting the word out

Becoming a full-time author is difficult and takes a lot of time and patience. Over the many years I have invested time and money in trying to make a dream I have had since school become a reality.

Behind The Scenes: Creating Poetry, The Otherworld + Celtic Goddess Brigid

It begins with a feeling; as something or someone that weaves through the ground, beneath my feet, moves in the soil until it decides to surface, tempted by water, tempted by air; to reach its hands for merging. And I try to shape it into words; to give it a home on a page while not losing its mo...

In Defense of the Serial Comma

Often when I am doing copyediting work, I encounter use of the serial comma, or non-use of it, as the case may be. You may know this punctuation mark as the Oxford Comma, as its use has been heralded by Oxford University for many decades. It may also be referred to as the Harvard Comma, which nom...

Siblings in Fiction (and in Life)

Do you like reading fiction that has a protagonist with siblings? Well, I do probably because I have three sisters who are now my best friends. I'm sure some people who do not have siblings have friends or cousins who are as close as sisters or brothers. Anyway, I love reading and writing about t... Read more of this blog post »

I see you everyday sleeping your life away
Losing time again, can’t convince you to stay
Your legs are so weak you can’t stand up

I’ll miss your chubby belly, so much mass

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
