When I was 40, we moved to Japan and started traveling around, and the more I traveled, the more I felt inspired to write. Most of my ideas come from places I've visited: some indelible in my memory, like the stormwater culvert in Hong Kong that inspired FOUR FIENDS; others are more subtle--places I work into a story because they inspired me when I visited.(less)

Echo by Lorena Glass

I actually enjoyed the story. For me it was a page-turner, and has a lot of potential, but there were some editing issues in my copy that made me rate this lower than it could have been. I think it needs a bit of work, especially to wrap up some loos ...more

OK, so here's apparently how not to tour Africa--although it is a very funny "how not to". I guess the moral to this story might be: if a travel agency messes up your reservation and offers you a dirt-cheap 5-month tour through Africa, think twice be ...more

Nikki Bennett Something funny is going on with i-page mail. I'm having trouble with it from my end too, although I can get on and see things. Here's my personal: roccapiafarm@yahoo.com Sorry about the trouble!


Renee Hi Nikki, I'm trying to get a hold of you but your email address and website are not working. Do you have an alternate email address you could send me please?

Thanks! Renee
