There are times when writing that a character will wrest the story from my grasp, but ultimately, it is all up to me.

In a life and in a world where so much is out of our control, from traffic to bosses to children to the weather, having one thing where your power is absolute can be very grounding. (less)

Gratitude - The Sequel

Nine days ago, I published my third book via my wee publisher.  Book birthdays are a wonderful and terrifying time.

There is the excitement of putting something new into the world that you created out of the mists of your own imagination, that you slaved over for uncounted hours, that you accosted friends and family to read or reread or edit or just listen to you rant on and on about your characters or th...

“Each of us is a book waiting to be written, and that book, if written, results in a person explained.”
Thomas M. Cirignano, The Constant Outsider

“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”
Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

Karen Marie Moning
“I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style,park your own car out front. My imagination has always topped anything a movie could come up with. Case in point, those darned Harry Potter movies. That was so not what that part-Veela-chick, Fleur Delacour, looked like.”
