Iris Chacon is like a trip to sunny Florida, from the horse country of Ocala to the playgrounds and beaches of Pensacola, Orlando, Miami, Key West and all points in between.

Good, clean, fun is the Chacon mantra, whether on white sandy beaches, on theme park thrill rides, or on the pages of a novel. A good book is a vacation for the mind and spirit, and Iris loves vacationing with quirky characters in quaint locations.

Travel through laughter and tears with surprising people, and see the world in its happiest colors. That's what reading can do for us. That's what Iris Chacon writes for us.

You don't have to be in the mood or particularly mystically inspired. You do your workouts to keep the machinery operating efficiently, you inhale what's in the air around you, process it near your heart, and exhale it onto the page. If you think you're "blocked," you're merely afraid. Michael Hauge gives a great piece of advice: "Don't get it right, get it written." Don't be afraid you won't get it exactly perfect, just write it. If it needs fixing, you'll do it in the next draft.(less)
