Other times, I like to wander around the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the IMA gardens, or a giant place called Midland Antiques. Sometimes, I read a book and am suddenly inspired by a plotting device that I hadn't considered for my story. By paying attention to the details around me, I can be inspired out of my blocks.(less)

Ayers has crafted a second collection of the quick and creepy. These stories are bloodier than the first collection, but just enough to make you squirm, not lose your lunch.

K.N. is on page 71 of 480 of How to Change Your Mind: “The mystical journey seems to offer a graduate education in the obvious. Yet people come out of the experience understanding these platitudes in a new way; what was merely known is now felt, takes on the authority of a deeply rooted conviction. And, more often than not, that conviction concerns the supreme importance of love.” (p71)

An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena
"I’m somewhere between a 3 1/2 and 4 stars review. It’s the first book I have read by this author. I loved the setting and characters and enjoyed the quick flow of the book. It definitely was a page turner. I am not the biggest fan of the Agatha Ch..." Read more of this review »

The Critic by Peter  May
"Not a bad little mystery and as a bonus, I learned a lot about wine. A Scotsman living in France who is a forensic expert was a really unique take on the genre. I love "traveling" when I read mysteries, so I'm sure I will check out his other books..."

Theodore Roosevelt
“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”
Theodore Roosevelt

William Golding
“There have been so many interpretations of the story that I'm not going to choose between them. Make your own choice. They contradict each other, the various choices. The only choice that really matters, the only interpretation of the story, if you want one, is your own. Not your teacher's, not your professor's, not mine, not a critic's, not some authority's. The only thing that matters is, first, the experience of being in the story, moving through it. Then any interpretation you like. If it's yours, then that's the right one, because what's in a book is not what an author thought he put into it, it's what the reader gets out of it.”
William Golding, Lord of the Flies
