S is for Sarah Potter

I've been following Sarah's blog for many years. Her blog, appropriately, is titled Sarah Potter Writes and write, she does. Sarah writes quirky novels, speculative flash fiction, haiku and tanka. One of her books is sitting in my TBR (to be read) pile right now. Sarah will tell you "Whatever I blog about, my aim... Continue Reading →

R is for J.D. Robb

I don't know when, exactly, I started reading J.D. Robb's "In Death" series but I do know I've read them all 4-5 times. She began writing them in 1995, back when no one knew, she was really Nora Roberts! These are - and there are 41 now, which doesn't include a few short stories - ... 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 →

N is for Henri J.M. Nouwen

I have read Mr Nouwen's words, on and off, hither and thither throughout the course of my life.  I have agreed and disagreed with his understanding, his experience of God. Really, how does one, how dare one, disagree with someone's experience? And yet, it is something we do, all the time, especially when it comes... Continue Reading →

J is for Judith Baxter

One of the first things I checked on, when moving down to Ecuador, was the distance between Cuenca and Wellington. New Zealand, that is.  Those of you who know where this is going, can stop laughing. Right now! My friend Judith lives there and, in my geographically challenged mind, I just knew that it would... Continue Reading →

H is for Beverley Hirst

One of the marvels of our time is, in my opinion, the world wide web.  Being of an imaginative nature, I picture it as the web of life. A place where we can find one another and where, my movement on the web, and yours, impacts life near and far. One of the delights, on... Continue Reading →

F is Friends in Foreign Places

April 16th is the anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Ecuador.  In Friends in Foreign Places: An Expat Anthology, thirty-five writers, most living as expatriates all over the world, share forty-five stories about expat friendships and being friends with expats in their own countries.  Read how we found friends in the most unlikely ways: buried...

D is for D. B. McNicol

I met Donna through her blog. She was not someone whose blog I had followed for years, like my friend Judith who you'll meet later this month.  Donna was a "random" find.  I was visiting Cuenca, Ecuador and looking around online, as I often do when seeking information.  I came across Donna's blog .  Donna,...
