Tooth Be Told . . .

Tooth Be Told . . .

I am aware that it is Christmas, and perhaps it just fits with the type of year we have had, but our household is running a bit behind. For one thing, I am in the process of transitioning my living room into a library (more on that in a future blog), but most recently, my… Read the full blog post …

Not Formed for Ill-Humour

Not Formed for Ill-Humour

The most important characteristic of a good heroine for me has always been a positive outlook. Sure, they might have moments of distress, but overall, they will not allow it to take them down. I have mentioned before that I grew up on classics. Laura Ingalls Wilder, Jo March of Little Women, Jane Eyre, and… Read the full blog post …

Just a Little Peek

Just a Little Peek

A few months ago, I posted a scene of some of our favorite characters as children. This led to a book idea which I have been working on since then. Unfortunately, life has interfered and caused a delay, but I thought I would share an excerpt today. Like most JAFF authors, I enjoy taking some… Read the full blog post …

But I Really Want to Read!

But I Really Want to Read!

I’m feeling a bit scattered lately, so I thought I’d give you a quirky look at one writer’s dilemma. The worst advice anyone ever gave me regarding being a writer was to read. You might remember from my bio or previous posts that I am a voracious reader. With ten years between me and my… Read the full blog post …

So, What Now?

So, What Now?

As I mentioned last month, I am between projects at the moment. It seems like I have a tendency to fall into a short slump after releasing a book. To fill that time, I read, and the number of new releases this summer has been outstanding. So many gifted writers and creative ideas of what… Read the full blog post …

A Soldier’s Life

A Soldier’s Life

I am currently between projects, but that does not mean I am not writing. Little ideas pop into my head from time to time and I thought I would share one here. In truth, this is one that I have no intention of writing. There are many other authors out there who have a much… Read the full blog post …

Coming Soon . . .

Coming Soon . . .

My newest work, Missing Jane, will be coming out in July. This last month has been a whirlwind of writing, finding an editor, and planning the cover. We finally had the photo shoot on Saturday, and I can’t wait to see what the photographer does with what we got. The day was beautiful! So this… Read the full blog post …

What Day Is It?

What Day Is It?

Last month I talked about “rabbit holes” that, no matter how interesting, can be a big distraction to writers. This month it is timeline continuity. With everyone staying home, and all the memes on social media, I thought this might be appropriate. Have you ever been reading a story or watching a movie and thought,… Read the full blog post …

Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

The joy and curse of writing is research. I will be the first one to admit that, though I had great potential, I was not the best student. I believe my love/hate relationship with research was part of the problem. It was mentioned on previous blogs that I am a bit of a history geek.… Read the full blog post …
