Memoir Schmemoir

One book on this list of NYT's 50 Best Memoirs in 50 years, "Barbarian Days," I couldn't finish due to the lack of story buried in far too much detail (We don't need to know every thing you did every freaking day--get to the point!). Then I came to a factual error and gave up.

Well, here's what I... Read more of this blog post »

Si puedo evitar que un corazón se rompa.

Si puedo evitar que un corazón se rompa,
entonces no viviré en vano;
Si puedo aliviar el pesar de un hermano,
consolar el dolor del vencido
ayudar al petirrojo a encontrar su nido,
entonces no viviré en vano.

Broken Play by Baylin Crow 














Broken Play (Sugar Land Saints #2)

We're friends, teammates—and we hook up. Often.

Shaw: He's intense and the heat of his stare is hot enough to set fires.

The first time we got together, it was a spontaneous earth-shattering moment. I wanted more. So, of course I popped the question.

New Book review

I just had the pleasure of doing a Beta read on a book by Chloe Szentpeteri "Vengeance Blooms" Book 1 of the Guardians of the Grove Trilogy. If you have never read any of her work, it is fantastic. My attention was captured in the first few pages and held tight the entire novel. I won't discuss w... Read more of this blog post »

Ultimately
all of this will come to an end
the joy, the pain, the sorrow

Writing the End of the Earth

My writers group is working on an anthology with several stories and poems about the end of the Earth. Each pictures a devastated Earth devoid of life. So many stories and movies are like this. Would the end of humanity bring a lifeless Earth? What a bunch of human-centered rubbish!

If You Break It, You Own It.

Many Americans have forgotten that the United States fought, not one, but two wars against Iraq. The first one, in 1991, may be forgotten because we chose limited aims and achieved them. As soon as the oil-rich country of Kuwait was liberated from Iraqi invaders, the United States left Kuwait and... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. 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
