I try to write at least three hours a day, really write. Not research, not online writing as in keeping up with my presence on the internet. I'm a mother, wife, sister, and daughter, have waited tables, been a dental assistant, teacher, journalist, gardener and architectural administrative assistant. I’ve traveled in Europe, New Zealand, and the US. I speak French and English fluently with a little Spanish on the side. I grew up in Florida, lived four years in Georgia before moving to Texas for eighteen years. The last year I've lived in Asheville North Carolina. Now I'm in Ohio, where the winters are colder... I have two published novels "The Seventh Man" a police procedural, and the award winning "Evangeline's Miracle," a mystery lost in ...more

Depends on what I'm working on. Starting a new work is never a problem, it's the finishing!(less)

November 6th Question: What's the strangest thing you've ever googled in researching a story?

While researching Celts/Gaelic peoples, I found that the Celts had soap before Romans did, that they built many of the roads (in England/Wales) that... Read more of this blog post »

Ingathering by Zenna Henderson
"I read most or all of these stories many years ago, and I really enjoyed re-reading them. They are "theistic" sci-fi, without being too much in-your-face about it (at least not by my standards). They are written with a lot of imagination, and real..." Read more of this review »

"It's been quite some time since I read an un-put-down-able book, and this one certainly fits the bill as one I will read again! I purchased it for $1.50 at an op shop in the mall. As engrossing as Sheri Tepper and "The Time Traveller's Wife", this..." Read more of this review »

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier

“I will continue to write what I love to read, and the fact that it doesn't sell as well as romance or sci-fi or fantasy isn't the point.”
