Growing up as an only child until I was nine had a lot to do with making me a storyteller. I wasn’t really alone because I had my imagination and spent loads of time there.

I also had Grandma and she did two amazing things for me. She told me stories of her own and she listened to mine.

I fall down into it like Alice falling down the rabbit hole and experience one adventure after another right along with my characters. Then I write those adventures down and invite my readers to jump into my story and experience it with me. This is the best of Wonderland every time.(less)

Exit Your Publishing Frenzy in 2021

Exit Your Publishing Frenzy in 2021. That is my new year’s wish for all of us in Writer Wonderland. To slow our roll and our pulses. To find a different way to navigate this very different time. Such an adjustment has everything to do with Attitude.
