Lea Carter (1982-??) was born in Neosho, MO, the youngest of eleven children. Between working on the family farm, attending Church and school, and playing with her siblings, she somehow found time to write. Her work progressed from childish attempts to recreate the magic she found in the books that she read to competition-winning short stories, published annually in the Crowder Quill.

If I can get enough of a scene written down before my mind has jumped to something else, then I can usually remember it (vividly) if I happen to come back to it. Most of my scene ideas just sit and gather dust, though. If I had bona fide story ideas, I suppose I would dedicate a binder or a spiral notebook--or a digital folder--to them. (less)

Language in YA

I recently took a chance on a book with a 14 yo protagonist. I don't swear or appreciate swearing in my entertainment, but I rationalized his swearing for the first couple of chapters because the boy had just lost his mother, been dumped into a bad foster home, etc.
But I eventually decided to stop reading it.
I don't understand why swearing and/or promiscuity (this book was thankfully free of th... Read more of this blog post »

Rita Mae Brown

“Where do storytellers find the wisdom to discover their own stories? From no place more mysterious than their own hearts.”

Walter Benjamin, Illuminations: Essays and Reflections

Oscar Wilde

“Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.”
Alexander Pope
