However, what sometimes flummoxes me are plot points. Planned or unplanned, sometimes a brick wall goes up around them. That's when I play - what would happen if? - and get ridiculous with it.

Writing Goals For 2020

Picture Happy New Year! This is the view from my office window in Key Largo - where I'll be spending most of my time in 2020 - when I'm not visiting my adorable new baby granddaughters, of course.

Like many writers, I feel terribly guilty for not posting on my blog more often, for not posting to the social media sites enough, for not coming up with scintillating, original, and fun content on a daily basis Read more of this blog post »

Salem's Cipher by Jess Lourey
Rate this book
Clear rating
From the first few pages, Lourey had me hooked.

This is an exciting roller coaster ride with a ticking clock, a long-lost treasure, and so much fun to read. Lourey skillfully blends historical people and facts with fiction to keep the pages turning.

Buzz Killer
by Tom Straw (Goodreads Author)

Greed. Power. Money.

The cause of most human atrocities are rooted in those three words. The pursuit of more money, always more, relentlessly more, is a twisted sickness that infects people. Money buys power. Money buys respect.
Money buys - safety?

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

It seems a bit silly to write a review of a book that already has too many to read, but here's my two cents. I also know I'm bucking the popular trend by not raving about it.
