As a kid, my world revolved around two things: stories and make believe. I have built a real life around those two things as well: I am a teacher of stories and a writer of make believe.

While I went to high school in a small town in Oregon and college in a smaller town in Oregon - both gifted me with treasures to fill my creative reservoir and most importantly, my husband. We got married, I followed him from Oregon to Hawaii (it was that or forgo the marriage).

We have two children, and several furry kids.

I read and write everyday.

Before we get started on this post, I think it’s important to note that I’m really new at this. Though I’ve read the expert advice (like we all have) and am working to follow that expert advice, I’m just starting out and getting a feel for what having a group of supportive readers is like (and I know you’re out there because you give me confidence on the daily! Thank you). This is why I

Enjoyed the banter

I enjoyed the banter in this book and the intimate scenes were... eyebrow raising (fanning myself). I would have liked more character development that dove a bit deeper because it was a bit repetitive.

Technically, You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson

Technically, I don’t like books told in text and email. I don’t find them as satisfying, but this was highly readable and cute. I think Johnson did a good job developing character given the limited narrative provided by text messaging.

A debut YA thriller novel from an indie author, the story was an interesting mash up of Romeo and Juliet meets Spy Kids. A cool premise.

Not great.

While I think there was a lot of promise in this story, it came across as superficial and contrived. Additionally, there were mistakes in the text that an editor should have caught.

Really enjoyed it, as usually. Talented writer. Enjoy the characters. Fast-paced action and drives the plot. I love how everything is important down to the smallest detail.

Ernest Hemingway
“But sometimes when I was starting a new story and I could not get it going, I would sit in front of the fire and squeeze the peel of the little oranges into the edge of the flame and watch the sputter of blue that they made. I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think, 'Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.' So finally I would write one true sentence, and then go on from there.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
