My granddaughter Tina may be the only one who missed the school bus that cold morning because she and her grandma were engaged in populating a pink roomed bug hotel. There were only two guests, and we two storytellers wrestled with the author's universal dilemma—having given our heroes a worthy obstacle, what do we (and they) do next?

As a child without knowledge of sensors or security, I used to imagine myself hiding at the library until it was closed, then sneaking out into the stacks and reading all night . . .

because I love stories!

When our children were little I was the story lady during the morning church service, and now I’m a volunteer story reader at various venues. As well, I taught English as a Second Language to adults for year

Will your book be “better than the movie”?

T. Davis Bunn’s characters come to life for me–so much so that I continue to wonder about them after he’s finished his part of the story.  I hope to meet Attorney Marcus Glenwood again! Why does the book so often trump the movie? Here are a few reasons: As the movie director, you watch the […]

Broken Ground by Val McDermid
"I love the UK background and culture, and that makes this book quite good. The character development and environment is very good.

The book really isn't about the mystery so much as the characters and motivations. And that makes this book quite unique" Read more of this review »

“Harriet smiled. "My name is Harriet."
"Do your friends call you Harry?"
"Not if they want to remain my friends."
"Harriet it is, then, and since we have to convince everyone we're... attached, you must call me Oliver."
She tilted her head. "Do your friends call you Ollie?"
"Not if they want to remain my friends.”

“The elderly gentleman somehow managed to look down his nose at her,even though they were of a similar height.
"From what I just witnessed, you were about to assault Mr. Addleshaw."
"Just because I was thinking about it, doesn't mean I was planning on seeing it through to fruition."
"A lady should never contemplate slapping a gentleman, especially not one of Mr. Addleshaw's social standing."
"I wasn't thinking about slapping him," Harriet muttered. "He deserved much more than a simple slap for being under the misguided belief that, simply because he has deep pockets, everyone should cater to his ridiculous whims.”

Steve King Hi Margaret--

Didn't mean to request a review from you so soon----you are the first children's author I have come across on Goodreads. Wanted to explain.

Steve :)

Margaret Welwood Yes, and perhaps you'd like to read mine (a 32-page picture book).Scissortown with Life Application

Steve King Margaret---I have one children's story. Would you be interested in reviewing it one day?----it is 30 pages---or at least reading it?

thx, Steve :)

Margaret Welwood Thank you. One of those strange people, eh? :)

message 5: by Bryan

Bryan Pentelow I have just put up another FREE READ which you may find interesting. Title 'My mother was a skiver'. I am one of thoes strange people who have public speaking as a hobby and have a stock of past speaking assignments which I have been looking for an out let to use them. This is the first, If you like it there are more where that came from. FREE READS are open to anyone who requests them so please spread the word.

Margaret Welwood I'm so glad you'll recommend my books to your grandchildren! Thank you! E-mailing you now.

message 3: by Bryan

Bryan Pentelow Thanks for replying to my post. I will recommend your books to my grand children who soak up reading like sand in a desert. If you would like a free read drop me an email at and I will send my current free reads by return. Once again thanks for the contact and more power to your pen.

Margaret Welwood That makes sense, especially the point about not liking a book doesn't mean it isn't good (by someone else's standards).

message 1: by Diana (last edited May 15, 2015 08:03AM)

Diana Rising Thanks for friending with me! I don't see how to answer your comment in the friend request, so I'll put it here. I guess I lack confidence in my judgement on a book too much to give low ratings, so I have only given two or three 3's and a few 4's. Me not liking a book doesn't mean it isn't good, it depends on my preferences and mood at the time I'm reading. Anyway, if I finish a book, I usually loved something about it, and I mention a few of those points in my reviews.
Maybe as I see more reviews from others and improve my reviewing I'll feel more confident to put a 2 or 3 review. But, until then, I mostly just don't review books that I didn't like.
