I have been tagged in the "Writerly Blog Chain" that's been hopping around the "blogosphere". Thank you to McGuffy Ann for including me. Please visit her blog, It is filled with wonderful book reviews and animal adoption tips. Also, she is an awesome author who has two books that have been published:
Weeds, which is a book of poetry written from the heart.
This book will draw you in and when you close the back cover you will understand the wonderful woman who wrote it much better. How she thinks, how she feels, what she sees. - I recommend you pick up a copy.
Bedtime Tail is a wonderful children's book. It reminded me so much of the Mercer Meyer books I used to read to my children that I just could not wait to read it to my grandson. This is a must have for anyone with toddlers in their house and I do so hope this awesome author will put out more like this.
Now for the Chain:
I have been asked to answer four questions about my writing.
Here are the questions and my answers:
1) What are you working on? I am not currently working on anything. I have a novel that is more than half done and I realized it wasn't really what I wanted to do. I did start another one and came to the same conclusion.
2) How does your work differ from others of its genre? I would like to believe that my work cannot be captured in any one genre (which is perhaps why it never became profitable). I write stories that are real, about real people, yet the book is fiction. It is based upon a compilation of experiences, visions and beliefs. I try to capture the reader and when they finish the book they know more about the human condition.
3) Why do you write what you do? It started out that I was writing to help other people realize that they were not alone in their 'potholes' of life and that no matter how bad it gets there is always hope. I guess that by the time I got to Skewered Halo I had lost all hope and that can be seen when the story ends. From that point forward I did not see much point in writing depressing novels!
4) How does your writing process work? Strangely enough I select a subject matter that I want to discuss and then I come up with a title. For example, I wanted to write a book about a mother losing a child and that child's experience as an adoptee. I felt that event would have disrupted all the lives involved and I called it Disrupted Lives. From there the characters take on a life of their own as I try to envision the world through their eyes. All the while I am trying to engulf my readers and open their eyes.
I would like to thank McGuffy Ann for this opportunity and I hope you do go check out her blog!
