On the tabs above the sky image you will find my writing blog, books or books-in-progress, and a link to my presence blog, “The Heart of the Matter” which directs you to its own site. Under the “Blog” tab, I post brief writing tips, my own (arduous) process with writing, and occasional guest posts. Check back, or even better, click “Follow” to receive a notice when a new post is published.
My new novel, Unleashed, will come out in October, 2017. Click the Unleashed tab to see the cover and read the back-cover blurb.
My memoir Blood Bond, was published in October, 2015. It’s the story of raising my son, Thom, who was born in 1974 with Tetralogy of Fallot, a life-threatening congenital heart defect. He had further medical problems that complicated our lives in ways we could not have imagined. All of this is set against the backdrop of single parenting and multiple marriages; it took me a while to develop into a mature adult. My son certainly helped me do that. The memoir can be purchased here: http://amzn.to/1Q6JTZY in either paperback or Kindle formats.
The writing process has taken me deep within, unearthed strengths and weaknesses I didn’t know I possessed, and pushed me to find courage that had not been there before. I have found writing a healing process, and want to encourage others to write themselves both awake and alive. I teach fiction and memoir to older adults through Santa Rosa Junior College. The classes are free for the students.
If you ask questions or comment, I will respond.
