I schedule time to write and I write. I have trained my muse to show up at regular times. Years of working on deadlines as a journalist taught me to use time as if it is running out. After a dear friend died before her book was published, I don't allow myself to put off writing. Time is precious. We only get so much of it.(less)

Great fiction evokes emotional responses.…moreEvery experience, wonderful or hideous, is material for writing because life evokes emotional responses. Great fiction evokes emotional responses. Writers can write anywhere--low tech pen and paper, high-tech dictation to text, wherever we are we can work. We aren't trapped in cubicles or stuck producing work at times dictated by others. In the research stage, we meet fascinating experts and learn new things. Writing is capturing life, recording the human condition, and trying to glean meaning from it. What's not to love?(less)

Suspenseful, engrossing, and agonizing to see a manipulator in action, using assumptions and company policy to destroy her boss. Brilliantly written. This would generate discussion at a book club.
