I live in Pennsylvania with my family. I attended Temple University. I consider my book, "True Season of Love," a labor of love. My unforgettable characters are smart, sexy, witty, cunning, sensitive and romantic. I admit to being a seat of your pants writer.

It’s alone time, but a good feeling when you write. It’s just you and your characters. I enjoy creating interesting characters, feeling and conveying their deepest emotions. I’m learning to make them four-dimensional, more believable and interesting with their aspirations, flaws, and secrets. It’s a pleasure to hear people discuss your characters and tell you how much they liked your book. (less)

If you haven’t already done so, add their goals, skills, traits, self-perception, etc. Read your story aloud, edit, and kill off the annoying adverbs and adjectives. I have read that too many can weaken your narrative. Do your research by purchasing books and via the library or on Google. (less)

The Moments That Take Our Breath Away

From June to October, brides say, "I do," more than any other time. It is a time when passion is still ripe and wonderful, and communication is effortless (I hope), and there is so much to look forward to.

I believe this is the enchanting and thrilling part of your life. It's when you meet each other's needs and learn with almost child-like wonder about this man you will spend your lifetime wit... Read more of this blog post »

Derek Walcott by Derek Walcott
“The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.”

Urenna Sander Majenta, thank you for your good wishes. I hope you're having a wonderful 2017 too.

Wishing you blessings, peace and joy.

Kindest regards,

Urenna

Majenta Hello, Urenna, thank you for contacting me! Yes, I loved your answers to the writer's-block and best-part-of-being-a-writer questions. I like you advice about writing out your chraracters' bios, resumes, goals...what I like to is to get all caught up in it...until, OK, here they are, now what to have them DO? But I really like describing them and seeing what comes together as a situation or a conflict. I hope you're having a good week and that 2017 has been good so far and keeps getting better. Happy reading, writing, creating, and everything else. Blessings!

Best wishes from Majenta

Urenna Sander Hi, Ali

I'm happy to read you are doing well. My family is doing fine.
I've been in a slump concerning my writing. At this time, I'm reading and reviewing books.
I'm planning to visit one of my nieces in the fall. She lives in California.
You will find a wonderful place to live. When you walk in, you'll know it's where you belong.

Sincerely,
Urenna

Ali Hi Urenna!

It is wonderful to hear from you! I didn't realize until just now that you sent me your e-mail address via your wall...I am so sorry I didn't respond, as I was expecting a message.
I am not too bad. Still enjoying writing and piano, and just working on finding a great place to live.
How have you and your family been? How has your book been doing?
I am looking forward to hearing back from you!
Sincerely,
Ali

Urenna Sander Hi, Jay

I enjoyed reading your Q. & A. profile on AA Books. How are you doing with Metra City?
At this time, I'm busy working out my characters in my forthcoming book. I must admit, I'm not good at networking. However, I know it's important for book sales. But when I wrote "True Season of Love," I was totally absorbed in writing a great love story. Perhaps too absorbed, because I did get complaints from family and friends. I might go into hibernation to complete this book.

All the best,

Urenna
