In fact, I have an over-abundance of ideas floating around in my head at any given time. Sometimes I need to dwell on an idea or a character before I get my fingers moving on the keyboard, but that's just part of the overall process of writing I think. I can get lazy or distracted, but never blocked.(less)

But the best thing about being a writer is when someone tells you how the words you have written have moved them emotionally or changed their perspective; that, to me, is priceless, and it is the author's true legacy.

Finding Tranquility Base by Janet Rebhan
"A friend recommended this story to me and I read it in one day. It is captivating. The plot is complex and keeps moving out ahead of you. East Texas becomes even more inviting. You'll be glad you spent the time with this treasure."
Finding Tranquility Base by Janet Rebhan
"I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! The small town, coming of age story reminded me a bit of "To Kill A Mockingbird." Being a veteran, I really appreciated the plot line about the veterans in the VA hospital. The smooth flow of the writing and the sh..." Read more of this review »
On Writing by Eudora Welty
“Art, though, is never the voice of a country; it is an even more precious thing, the voice of the individual, doing its best to speak, not comfort of any sort, but truth. And the art that speaks it most unmistakably, most directly, most variously, most fully, is fiction; in particular, the novel.”

“In this new year, may you have a deep understanding of your true value and worth, an absolute faith in your unlimited potential, peace of mind in the midst of uncertainty, the confidence to let go when you need to, acceptance to replace your resistance, gratitude to open your heart, the strength to meet your challenges, great love to replace your fear, forgiveness and compassion for those who offend you, clear sight to see your best and true path, hope to dispel obscurity, the conviction to make your dreams come true, meaningful and rewarding synchronicities, dear friends who truly know and love you, a childlike trust in the benevolence of the universe, the humility to remain teachable, the wisdom to fully embrace your life exactly as it is, the understanding that every soul has its own course to follow, the discernment to recognize your own unique inner voice of truth, and the courage to learn to be still.”
Janet Rebhan

“I’m a survivor. And like the moon, I have a feeling it would take a truly spectacular event to keep me from taking my place in the scheme of things, waxing, waning, and eclipsing notwithstanding.”
Janet Rebhan, Finding Tranquility Base: A Novel

“There's a fine line between forgiveness and denial.”
