2014 was a pretty darn good year after 2013 was soooo sucky.
2013 was truly a sucky year. An "annus horribilis" as Queen Liz would say. While my writing career was flying high with the publication and accolades for Render, my personal life was a mess. I lost my father and grandmother i...

A different kind of Christmas this year, plus the first draft of "Leaving Paris" is printed and ready for editing.
For the first time ever (yes, ever) I am spending Christmas elsewhere. I'll be with my mother at Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, North Carolina watching her gamble away my inheritance at the slot machines. Yep, mom is a slot que...

The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces does a good job of recapturing the spirit of the original arts festival that used to be a staple of the park back in the 80s and 90s. A good mix of art, food and entertainment to be had along the winding pathways of gorgeous Piedmont Park.
