Of course, that's only a single grain of sand required in the "sandbox" of writing an entire novel. For Jadeite's Journey, that was a friend's remark that when she was a child, she couldn't tell her father from his twin brother until she was close enough to catch his scent. That led me to the idea of clones. (less)

Phyllis Goodwin I'm hoping to read your book of short stories. My book Dog tales & Other Gems includes a couple of stories about my visit to Denver before the year 2000. It is hard to believe but I went all that way to attend a DOG SHOW! If you have any spare time you may like to take a look? Best Wishes
