I may go for a run, take my dog out for a walk, channel surf on TV, peruse news sites on the Web. Sometimes I clean my house. While I'm doing any of those things, I think about what I want to write – in very general terms. What usually happens is one sentence or a snippet of dialogue will pop into my head and that will knock the block out of the way. I think the worst thing to do when the words aren't flowing is to panic.

I'm not really a disciplined writer — I don't have a set amount of time per day or a set number of pages. I may write nothing one day, and 50 pages the next. But I'm always ready.(less)

I found "Heart on a Fence" utterly captivating. It is an artful blend of soulful poetry and stunning images. Meier's words carry the reader through a range of emotions, and the reader can't help but go along. The photographs, in their grace and simpl ...more

"This was a roller coaster of a story of romance and family, life and death. It was a real page-turner. I give it 4.5 stars out of 5."
