A Savannahnian born and raised, I have never lived more than thirty miles from my birthplace. After graduating from Savannah Christian Prep School in 1977, I immediately went to work. I met my future husband on a blind date and after five years of marriage I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. between work and family, I never really had time to pursue my passion, reading. Recent circumstances caused me to re-evaluate my life. I returned to reading and got a an idea for a story. One day I sat down and started typing. It felt so good to be able to put to paper (so to speak) my imaginings. I've always been a fan of romance, but I never thought that one day I would be a published author with my own romance novel. I have extended my favorite ge ...more

Okay, need everyone's help.
I'm at 896 people who've put my book on their TBR list. I am trying to increase that number to 1000. Good round number, don't you think?

You can purchase it in all kinds of formats and just about every online bookstore has it. Go to Amazon, Booksamillion, Barnes N Noble.

Description: I was just feeling sad and frustrated about a situation I had no control over. It was eating me up so I had to write it down. It wasn't well thought out, more like a "spilling my guts" kinda thing. I'm not a poet so don't judge to harshly.

“I'm not overweight, I'm undertall”
Charles Garfield

J.M. Barrie
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

J.K. Rowling
“I really feel that we're not giving children enough credit for distinguishing what's right and what's wrong. I, for one, devoured fairy tales as a little girl. I certainly didn't believe that kissing frogs would lead me to a prince, or that eating a mysterious apple would poison me, or that with the magical "Bibbity-Bobbity-Boo" I would get a beautiful dress and a pumpkin carriage. I also don't believe that looking in a mirror and saying "Candyman, Candyman, Candyman" will make some awful serial killer come after me. I believe that many children recognize Harry Potter for what it is, fantasy literature. I'm sure there will always be some that take it too far, but that's the case with everything. I believe it's much better to engage in dialog with children to explain the difference between fantasy and reality. Then they are better equipped to deal with people who might have taken it too far.”
J.K. Rowling

Stephen King
“There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
Stephen King

Justin Halpern
“The worst thing you can be is a liar. . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two.”

P.Q. Glisson I am soooo excited! I've been talking with my #1 fan and we are going to work together to get my book signings booked with my local library and bookstores. She is even willing to purchase the books for me for a percentage of the profits. Then one of my other friends got in touch with our local magazine and they want to interview me! How cool is that? Wow, I feel like I'm on a roller coaster ride. Anyone have any advice?

Laura Ahh, you're published!!! Lucky ducky!!! :D Gratz though! That's totally amazing!!!!


message 3: by P.Q.

P.Q. Glisson Hey friends! Had lunch yesterday to sign another book. I've been getting sterling reviews. People have been saying things like "Couldn't put it down!" "Better than Twilight!" "Once I finished I turned back to the front and started reading it again!" "Loved it! The characters are painted so vividly!"
Now they are asking when's the sequel coming out. I am so excited that something I wrote has given some many people pleasure. It's humbling...and mindboggling.


Laurel Lamperd Thank you for inviting me to be your Goodreads friend. Congratulations on your book. How exciting for you that your book is doing so well and getting good reviews. It will encourage you to write the next one. Laurel


message 5: by P.Q.

P.Q. Glisson Thanks Laurel,
I am actually writing two more novels and have ideas for two more. It should keep me busy for a few years at least.
I have to say the whole thing is kinda surreal, but I've got my seat belt on!
Please check it out. As you know, I did all the editing. There are a few errors that slipped through the cracks but it hasn't seemed to be a problem. No one who has read it or reviewed it has even mentioned the editing. They just loved the story. My dream come true would be if a major (heck, I'll take a minor) publishing company swooped in like my prince charming and offered me a contract. That would be sooooo KEWL!!!

I'm glad that you're feeling better. Sorry you're having nightmares though.
Wow, that's a lot of money for a book. How much are ebooks over there?
We complain when we have to pay fifteen dollars and a hard back book. There are so many stores that sell books as cheap as five dollars!
I've always wanted to go to New Zealand. I guess I'd have to pack one whole suitcase with nothing but books.

P.Q. Glisson Hey all my friends. I really need you to go to Best Ever Contemporary Romance Books and vote for Her Sanctuary. I only ask you to do this if you have read the book and liked it. Thanks!!
Oh yeah, it's located on page 3 at the bottom.

message 13: by Stacey

Stacey Allison Hi! Thanks for sending the friend invite yesterday. I saw on a friends page where she added your book so I went to check it out and it sounds really good. I've got a rather large list of books that Im going to the store with to find. Most women have shoe or purse addictions, but mine is with books LoL. Do you happen to know if your book is offered at local book stores or is it an online thing only?
Thanks again!


message 14: by P.Q.

P.Q. Glisson Hey Stacey!
Unfortunately it is only on the online websites but you can order from just about anywhere including amazon, BnN, Booksamillion. You can walk into the store and have them order it for you while you're there or order it straight from the internet. It's also available as an ebook. Go to my author's page on gr and there's a link on the right side, but no picture. Anyway, I hope you'll order it. I think you'll like it if you are a fan of romance/mysteries with a touch of supernatural. (mostly Indian folklore, spirit guides, that kind of stuff) There are many twists. Can't tell you anything else without giving away secrets so shhhh. Okay, I'm going to shut up now. Thanks again!!


message 15: by Baine

Baine Hey, no problem

Lady Rutledge Thanks for inviting me!
Happy to read your answer for my question. Ok, it sounds cliche, if the topic is about Twilight. But it makes more curious and can't wait to read it ASAP. :)
Glad to know you, I'm new with novel, so next time recommend me some great books, won't you? Of course beside Twilight. :)

Hey M.C. (any kin to M.C. Hammer? lol) Just kidding!
It is funny about my initials, isn't it? Actually, they P. stands for Phyllis and the Q. is the first letter in my maiden name. I've always hated the name Phyllis. I was growing up at the same time Phyllis Diller was popular and people would call me by her name, making fun of me. My Dad was a little more gracious. He usually called me Phyllis Dillis. Then I had a girl I worked with who called me Phyl Dill. So you see why I chose to use the initials instead? lol
Anyway, thanks for accepting my friend request.
"I'll be watching you too!" lol


message 35: by M.C.

M.C. It is amusing that I do get some references to Hammer or Beaton as they share my initials. I rather like MC as it as easily known as the word, "emcee' and my true initials. And after your reply, I have assume that your name is not a nom de plume, either.
