It Was So Much Fun Researching the 1950s Lifestyle

I was born in 1957 and don’t remember what the fifties were like, so I loved going back to that time when researching The Golden Doves, and happily gave Josie’s boss’s wife a plastic-slipcovered sofa.

Growing up in suburban Massachusetts our across the street neighbors The Aleos had an ultra modern h

Evolution of Punctuation

Do even a short Google search about changing grammar and punctuation and the articles will hit the big points: use of singular “they”, split infinitives, double versus single spaces, and starting sentences with conjunctions.  But there are a number of other changes that slipped past the grammar guru

Striking While the Muse is Hot

One bit of advice I've gotten, applied, internalized and have no problem repeating is 'don't wait for the muse.' Just write. The key to finishing a book is consistency, not fits and starts of inspired prose or whatever. Even when it's not working, you have to try; maybe it'll unclog something or get Read more of this blog post »

Drugs vs Sugar

I used to use drugs. When I was a music critic in Vancouver and later, here in Toronto. Nothing was off limits except needles (ick).

The last drug I used regularly was marijuana, which is way worse for you than we're told. Its danger is in now innocent it feels as it reworks your critical imagination Read more of this blog post »

What would happen to a person if they didn’t get the sleep they needed? Hedya, age 11, Australia

This is a really good question Heyda, because it makes us think about how important sleep is. Actually, sleep is one of the most important things we do.

Behind The Scenes: GAME ON

I’m so excited to see readers loving my second book, Game On. This was a completely different experience from writing my first book, for a variety of reasons. First, the intense learning curve of self-publishing was a little bit easier the second time around. I had all the accounts set up and had fi

My Spring Home Cleaning Routine

Happy Spring!

Spring is a very special time of the year. Our body and soul want to follow the opening and movement of energy in nature and crave rejuvenation. While we can give our body some green detox smoothies and more nature walks, our home needs some boost and rejuvenation too. I wanted to share

March's Writing Progress

A day early for once, just because... I added about 8,500 words to Command Authority this month, so it now stands at 155,000 words. I'm closing in on the end (I know I've been saying that for the last six months...)

Secrets of Secrets of the Moon #1

So you might ask, why thirteen chapters and why the four seasons.

To be honest, that came late in the books life cycle but felt like a very natural thing to do.

When I originally mapped out the book, I came up with 13 chapters. Although some ideas where later added and others merged, the number stuck Read more of this blog post »
