Motivation is always a challenge. My advice is to join a writers group. It will help hold you accountable. When I joined my first one, all three of us were unpublished. Within two years, we published. Romance Writers of America is a good place to start. Good luck!(less)

Life in the Crazy Lane – New Book Release!

 I have not been blogging.  HIS LESSONS ON LOVE released the end of January.  But it was not a “normal” release.

 All eformats of the book hit the virtual shelves but the paper copies were delayed about a week and a half.  However, all is good.  My readers are with me, and new readers will find me.  I’ve been in this business a long time and I’ve learned that readers will wait.  Certainly, I’ve wai

I love the behind the scenes fashion industry glimpses and I enjoyed the romance. My favorite books are where the heroine realizes she is her own worst enemy and steps forward. Great read and I say that knowing the ending and being happy with it.

“Because in the end, the measure of a well-lived life is not titles or riches. It’s not even measured by the people we please, especially at the cost of our own souls. No, the true measure of a well-lived life is how well we love…and how well we are loved in return.”
Cathy Maxwell, Four Dukes and a Devil

“She'd known many men in her life but this bear of a man with a lawyer's mind, an accountant's habits, and a knight's spirit outshone them all.”
Cathy Maxwell, The Marriage Ring

“Oh, yes, he’d spent a good portion of his day in self-pity. And now? Now he felt shame.”
Cathy Maxwell, If Ever I Should Love You

“Be bold. Be brave. Let go of what is safe and familiar and search out what is new … find the best teachers here and take the most interesting courses, even if they are tough.

Advice from Susan Schmidt MBC Class of 1975 when she delivered the college’s Founders Day address”
Susan Schmidt

“Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
Dale Wasserman, Man of La Mancha

“It is dangerous to condemn stories as junk which satisfy the deep hunger of millions of people. These books are not literary art, but a great deal of what is acclaimed as literary art in our time offers no comfort or fulfillment to anybody.”
Judith Skelton-Grant, For Your Eye Alone

“God has placed clear limits on Man’s intelligence, but none on his stupidity.”
John Corapi
