V is for V.I.P.

Who is the most important person to a writer? A reader!  We write for you. Oh yes, we write because we have stories to tell, poems to share with the world, memoirs that need to be recorded for posterity and books on advice and suggestions.   But we write for YOU, the reader.  And once...

U is for unabashed…

...as in the unabashed promotion of authors which I love to do. We are a great bunch of people. Smart, creative, imaginative, and we love words. Today I am, once again promoting friends.

T is for Bill Travis

Have you heard of Bill Travis? He is the creation of George Wier. That's a picture of George, not Bill. How do I know that? Well, not only was George the keynote speaker at the 2017 Cuenca International Writers Conference, but I had a chance to sit down with him and my friend Scarlett for... Continue Reading →

I covered pages and pages. I have always surrounded myself with the words of others. Words that inspire, words that make me think,... Continue Reading →

P is for Patricia Sands

I don't remember how I connected with Patricia. Did I read her first book and then go looking for her? Who is this woman, I wondered, who writes so delightfully? I soon discovered that not only does she write interesting stories about characters that sound like someone I might meet and whose company I would... Continue Reading →

O is for Einstein

Whenever I'm asked, "If you had a chance to spend a day with a famous person, who would you choose?", my answer is immediate: "Albert Einstein."  What an amazing mind he had, people say. And they are right.  Only a genius could have conceived of and explained this: I always think, what an amazing human... Continue Reading →
