I don’t know if every author requires a pivotal moment, event, or set of events to get them on the road to writing, but I did.

I’d never, not even once, entertained the idea of penning a piece of literature until my father began showing the inevitable signs that his life on this earth would be coming to an end. Until that time, I was convinced that my father was invincible – bulletproof – that... Read more of this blog post »

Robin (Bridge Four)
Robin (Bridge Four) is 6% done with Unwind: There are three people there. A tribunal, thinks Risa. Three adults sitting in judgment, like the three monkeys: hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, speak-no-evil

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16”
Lisa C. Temple, Illuminating Gracie

“Exercise - ugh - never one of my favorite things. It wasn't that I was endearingly clumsy like the girl in one of my favorite romance novels, nor was I particularly athletic, either. I suppose, if the truth be told, I was just plain lazy. I had never been attracted to the idea of purposely sweating.

Lisa C. Temple, Illuminating Gracie

“If the only tool in Willem's arsenal was a silent supplication to an absent almighty, then I might as well be sitting next to a raving radical ready to die for the promise of seventy-two virgins and a couple of camels.”
Lisa C. Temple

“There are no ugly women, only lazy ones”
Helena Rubinstein

“If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary - the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder
