I read this book probably 20 years ago, and around the same time, I read Sense and Sensibility. I much preferred Sense and Sensibility at the time, but now I couldn't tell you much about that novel or even who the main characters were whereas Pride and Prejudice has really stuck with me. This is one of the rare books I would be willing to read twice. The love story of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy is captivating.

This is not a love-at-first-sight romance but a dislike-at-first-sight romance. The ensuing interactions between the two are humorous, poignant, and always interesting. Other writers have tried to write dislike-at-first-sight romances, but they must be harder to write than love-at-first-sight romances, because the stories so often feel contrived. I don't find myself falling for the hero and rooting for the heroine as I did in Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen got it right when she created these characters and wrote their love story more than 100 years ago. People are still buying the book and reading about this fictional couple today, so I'm guessing they are a favorite of others also.(less)

Whenever I think of a new idea, I jot down notes as soon as I can, while the idea is still fresh in mind. If I have time to write and I absolutely don't feel like writing, I'll read instead. Reading enjoyable works by other authors often renews my desire to write and can serve as the spark that gets me going.(less)

Selling nonfiction now

In recent months, I sold two nonfiction stories to be published in books by Guideposts and Bethany House. This was in my spare time, and I also write for my full-time job with the National Science Foundation.


A children’s magazine that I sold a nonfiction story to about 10 years ago tracked me down and asked me if they could reprint that story, with payment. Beginning writers, note this: Nonfiction
