"Writer's block" is created by the writer trying to formulate the words in their head until they are perfect. It's easy to get lost in your head doing that. So I just write whatever I'm thinking, knowing that I can go back and re-edit when and if necessary.(less)

[SPOILER ALERT]


I’ve always thought of the Tucker series in these terms: Tucker’s Way is a challenging story; An Unexpected Frost is a sad story; April’s Rain is a forgiving story; March On is a dark story; and Who Will Hear Me When I Cry is a sweet story.


Tucker’s Way was about whether or not a character like Tucker could change and bond with a person who was the opposite of her; of course, she...

"Such an engaging story. Fully developed characters thrown into unbearably awful circumstances survive multiple traumas and come to a place of peace and redemption.

“Nobody can do life on their own. There ain’t nothing wrong with asking for help. As a matter of fact, a man told me one time that the best gift you can give someone is the opportunity to help you.”
David Johnson, April's Rain

“Signs are my food, drink are my tears; Clinking of fetters such music would crave; Stink and close air, away my life wears Innocency is all the hope I have. —Sir Thomas Wyatt”
David Johnson, April's Rain

“So, here’s how it’s going to be,” she continues. “The doctor says I’ve only got a few months to live.” Tucker’s mouth flies open and panic distorts her features. She rises slowly from the couch and stumbles toward the front door. Opening it, she goes into Ella’s front yard. Ella makes a move to go after her when suddenly she hears a cry from outside that makes her blood turn cold. It sounds as if someone has taken the scream of a screech owl and the howl of a coyote and mixed them in hell. Ella has a memory of reading The Hound of the Baskervilles as a child and trying to imagine what the eerie howl of the hound must have sounded like. Now she is certain she knows what it sounded like and why even the intrepid Sherlock Holmes was unnerved upon hearing it.”
David Johnson, An Unexpected Frost
