This Writer’s Journey . . .

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers. I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time! KM Wilsher. I wasn’t really sure how to start[…]

Cinema Sound Off

~~~ My good friend, KM Wilsher, and I are heading out to Harkins Theatres each month to watch a choice movie. We’ll let you know if it’s worth you spending your hard-earned money or not. CLICK HERE for our rating system Now…onto the movie. ~~~~ Funny little story to start this off. We’d originally chosen Machete to watch and review.

It was that disturbing. So, the fantastic staff at Harkins Theatres[…]

But, it counts as one, right? And how have I been learning it? Oh, the waiting game. Several publishers have requested several full manuscripts from  my agent, and now the[…]

Musical Monday

I was introduced to this group on KM  Wilsher’s blog. She’s got rockin’ taste in music. A little bit on the hard rock side for me, but this group, she’s got me hooked! She played Crow and Butterfly on her blog last week. I’m so glad she did. I went out and downloaded four of their songs. This one, I Dare You, has got me (along with Crow and Butterfly) ~~~~ I Dare You, by Shinedown [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iazu5htQT4I] ~~~~ They have such a great sound. I had them playing when I did a thirty mile bike ride the other day, and[…]
