Angels around us

It's Thanksgiving day and before you know it will be Christmas. There are many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for life, health, family and friends. Of course, along with my sister Rose, I am cooking again this Thanksgiving. My family is not very large: my two sisters, son, daughter and their  Read More

Who am I? What is my profession

Someone asked me this question the other day.
What is your profession?
without having to think I replied, I'm a writer.
What do you write?
I write romance, fiction, poetry and fantasy.
You are multi-talented?
Like 99% of writers, I replied.
As writers, as soon as you pick up our work we are with you  Read More

I'm back! Has it been that long???

I can't believe it has been that long since I wrote on my blog. OMG! I'm not going to say I had nothing to say because I have a lot to say. But right nowI would like to talk about something that infuriates me. The kidnapping of young women up and down this country  Read More

Good times

You know, I wish I could write a blog every day, but I can't. Don't ask. Maybe it's because I am always busy even when I'm not writing or because I don't have anything insiteful to say. Not sure. But anyway, I'm here today. I'm trying hard to get more well written books out  Read More

A pot of gold

At the end of a rainbow you find a pot of gold: really?
I have a small six month old poodle, Tippa. She loves to go no no on any rug or carpet in the house. I also have a chihuahua, Dot. She's a year old. She seems to sit and watch the poodle go  Read More

I'm in a good place now

I'm in a new place now. A good place. The way I figure it, instead of waiting for someone to do things for me, I do it myself. You know that old saying; if you want something done right, do it yourself. Even though people think they know you, no one knows you better  Read More

Things are looking up

Things are looking up for me again. Sometimes all you have to do is hang in there and believe in yourself. No mater what others say, you have to trust yourself. I'm not going to say I never listen to anyone, but I very rarely do what others tell me to do especially if  Read More

Disalusioned

Have to keep my chin up. This illustration is from my children's book Ducky Grows Up which is sold on the Nook.
I learned a few months ago that things are not always as they seem. It's one thing after the other. My new book The Other Side Of the Mountain was released in June. I have a signed contract with the publisher and I have not heard from them in five months. Does anyone know if this company has dropped off the face of the earth? Is any other author having problems with them?
I am certainly not going to stress over this because there are ways of dealing with this sort of thing.
But it's hard to write when I have all this on my mind. Hard to concentrate, but I'm hanging in there. Working on another romance The Upside of Down... how ironic, but it's a love story. waiting on my editor with the Paranormal that I'm still working on. Actually, it's in the mail, she was fast. unlike the mail. So, i'm not being idle.
I've adopted not a wait and see attitude but rather patience and understanding for my work. I'm not sure I can understand what is going on with these publishers. How can they take your own material as if it's theirs and violate their own contract. Would you believe this is the second time this has happened to me in less than three years. I trusted this company. You may smile and say never trust a publisher, but i'm stupid that way. I have to trust that the company and people I deal with have scruples. The advance is not much, really, but at least it could have bought more materials, pens, pencils, paper. In the meantime I'm getting residuals from Kindle.  Read More

Perfection

The text you type here will appear directly below the image
I strive for perfection sometimes to the point of sleeplessness. I wanted my covers to be perfect on Kindle and I knew I couldn't do it all by myself so I kept looking until my very dear friend told me about this amazing man in Jamaica who actually does not realize how talented he  Read More
