Vintage storytelling in a modern world.

My newest series is the Second Chance at Love series. Book 1 - COMING HOME TO LOVE - is currently available. It is a British romance with an unlikely hero and heroine. Hint: this type of story is called a silver-haired romance. Early reviews are gratifying. The second book - KNIGHT TO LOVE - is still a work in progress.

My blog - Moonlight Musings - is where my book reviews are posted along with interviews, guest bloggers, an author's look at life in general. Join the fun!

With red pen in hand, I begin to read the story - slowly. I'll made edits, changes, etc. Usually that gets me back to where I have an idea of where the story should go next.(less)

Note the way others writers write - their tone, their pacing, etc. What are they doing that you don't like? Second, write every chance you get. Descriptions, dialogue, anything that will help to sharpen your skills. When I first started writing I was working as a temp in the office of a bank branch manager. When things got slow, I would watch the customers as they went about their business and make up stories about each one. It was a fun and easy way create backstories.(less)

Redemption Ranch by Cloe Rowe (Book Review)

When I first read this story (pre-publication), I liked the core story. Author Cloe Rowe has taken two broken characters and given them hope for a bright new future. Summer Benson, daughter of a vindictive father, has borne one-too-many beatings and escapes from his home. Finding a place to hide in what she assumes is an abandoned barn and finds solace in her music. Her angelic voice carries over
