Actually I've already written that book.
Crown Hill, A Novel of Love, Life and The Afterlife chronicles the history of a 150-year old farmhouse that I called home for 20 years. The house's story of love, life and the afterlife was revealed to me through anonymous letters, phone calls and resultant research that I undertook.
For anyone interested in hearing more about the story behind the Crown Hill story, contact me and let's set a date for an author presentation for your book group, neighborhood friends or book-loving family. I love to travel and share my Crown Hill journey.(less)

Now that I write stories for a living, I have become the personification of that axiom, if you love what you do, it never seems like work.
In a nutshell, for me the best thing about writing is telling the stories that make a difference---whether in an op-ed newspaper column, a company newsletter, a campaign speech, a magazine profile or a book. The ability to weave words in ways that make people think, feel, care, is a gift and I am always grateful when readers thank me for my words. It is at those moments that I am sure of my purpose.

Hometown Love

Four years ago this week I moved from my Crown Hill Farm, a house where I lived for 20 years—-longer than any place in my life. Part of the challenge in making that move was leaving behind a town where I had become an intergral part of the community, and wondering if I’d ever find the same level of acceptance in my new hometown of East Aurora.

That wonder was quickly answered as East Aurora residen

John Grisham shared a note and highlight from
A Time to Kill by John Grisham
AUTHOR’S NOTE
A TIME TO KILL was inspired by a dramatic event I witnessed in a courtroom 35 years ago. I was 30 years old and had never thought about writing anything other than legal briefs and threatening letters to insurance companies. My initial goal was to simply write the story. I had no deadline, no schedule, no idea when I would finish or what I would do if I ever finished. And that is not the original title. It’s too awful to even think about.
