I get lost in sunsets, find peace in gardens, need friends but balanced by solitude, believe in the power of words and hugs, and refuse to use pesticides (even with scorpions around) because I enjoy my backyard lizards and all the birds who feed on the crickets and bug critters.
Besides my writing, I do some ballroom dancing and hope to learn to paint with watercolors.

I'm a prior technical editor. My focus shifted to creative writing in 2007 when I tried my hand at NaNoWriMo. Some of my flash fiction, short fiction, and poetry can be found in a few print publications and online. My work is usually inspired by everyday life as it unfolds around me.

It was about a suicide and a smart-ass advice columnist, who retreats emotionally when she learns about the suicide, and believes her words might been what pushed this young man to take his own life. Would have to use only the bare bones because I've honed my craft quite a bit since then (12 years ago). Not sure. Might continue on with characters in my current novel and work a murder into the mix.(less)

MULTI-FACETED OR FLAKY?

Picture ​You walk into my house and find me in the kitchen, energy flying in all directions. The contents of a cutlery drawer are dumped on the counter; the dishwasher is partly emptied; and a stack of mail is halfway sorted. Do you just shake your head, make yourself a cup of tea, and wait it out, or do you back away slowly, glancing around for trace amounts of cocaine on your way to the door?

I opened this book anticipating a great read. I'd heard so many good comments, and lately I've been reading a lot of book set in WWII, featuring women. But... I just wasn't impressed.

The book opens with too much back story, too much narrative, and I

Lynn Thanks for the recommendations. Appreciate it. Both Secret Daughter and The Golden Sun sound like my kind of books.

Madeleine Hague Hello Lynn: That's nice that we're connected. I'm afraid I haven't been very active on Goodreads. The 2 book covers that appeared re: my profile are both rock and roll bios, and I think you already know, that this is a bit of an obsession with me. Other books however, that I have recently enjoyed are Peter Robinson mysteries (Bookcrosser Over-the-moon kindly sent me one earlier this year from Switzerland, and I really liked it) and if you haven't read "Secret Daughter" or "The Golden Sun" by Indo-Canadian Shilpi Somaya Gowda - they are excellent. Shelley also gave me "The Colour of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother," by James McBride - FANTASTIC! xo
