On Loving Unloveable Characters...
I had an editor remark that "He's not a likeable character." Yeah, and? That's the point. Fact of life: not everyone is likeable- not in your family (don't we know that all too well!), not amongst your peers, (yep, know that too), especially not at the work...

Designing Devices
Since there have been writers, there have been literary devices. I'm talking about visual devices;. like when poets create a poem in the shape of a tree because that's the theme. You probably did this in sixth grade (maybe it's still hidden in a drawer some...

Let's talk about it over coffee...
You want to write/illustrate for children. Maybe picture book, maybe middle grade, maybe young adult (who technically aren't children, but we authors have no say in this classification so don't yell at the messenger). You've drafted/typed some things down o...

Well, duh! Didn't I just tell you I'm a writer? And consumer of food that's not good for me? And mother/wife? Who has time for anything else?

Story
Introduction
I imagine squirrels taking over the world, love guacamole, struggle to outwit my sons, and try to avoid nano-bots who are conspiring to ruin every piece of technology I touch and make me feel stupid. Yes, I'm a writer and in my world, improbabilities are very likely.
Bragging rights
Have three sons who will support me in my old age, a husband who has to tolerate my whacko-ness, and 3 (so far) books pubbed: Blonde OPS (6/2014, Thos Dunne/St Martin) and the Sirenz series: Sirenz and Sirenz Back In Fashion (Flux). I'm hoping some of my solo books will be snatched up by brilliant publishers also. Keep watching...
