Dealing With Grief
Four months ago my father died. Last weekend the hospice team held a memorial service for those who lost loved ones this year. I decided not to attend the service. The hospice team was wonderful and I truly appreciate all they did for my father. I wish I ha...

Street Fairs, Book Fairs, Author Talks, Advertising, Newsletters--What Works for You?
I haven't been out at a street fair trying to sell books for quite a while. I haven't given any library talks for a year or so. Whenever I tried one of those venues, sales were few or none. I had fun when there were other authors with me because I got to ch...

A Friendly Insect
As I pulled into a parking space, I saw this praying mantis on another car. I came up close to take a picture of him but the insect was clearly suspicious of my advance and inched away. I worried about the creature since it could be injured or worse if the ...

Give Your Characters Scars
Everyone has scars. The scar pictured above is on my knee. When I was young, the closest small grocery store to our house was within easy walking distance. Still, there was a shortcut through the woods which everyone used--a well-worn path with a few rocks ...

#tbt 1952. My cousin Debbie who later died at the age of 24 from a brain aneurysm a few weeks before she was to be married. Very sad.
In the photo she's running on the lawn at my grandparents' house in Pennsylvania.

Before my illness struck, I used to run around in a thousand different directions trying to do hundreds of things all at once. I was busy, happy, and focused. I felt like I had a handle on the worl…

Feasibility Study--Or How Much Yarn Does It Take To Spin a Good Plot
Sometimes, I waste hours doing feasibility studies--with crocheting and with writing. For instance, I had some lovely old yarn with subtle shades and sparkly highlights and I wanted to see how far I could go with it. Could I make a baby blanket? It didn't t...

#tbt 1952. My brother and I attempting to feed a very large horse on the farm in Pennsylvania. I have a healthy respect for all gigantic animals with big teeth and big feet. My brother was more daring. It looks like he's ready to shove that corn into the horse's mouth. :-)

Talking Love With Susan M. Baganz
You would think the author of countless romance stories would find it
easy to write one out of her own life. But it’s not. Growing up, I would walk home and look up to heaven, spin around, and
wonder if God was taking my picture. Did He care for my overly-s...

My Patriot's Saga Heads West
This is a portion of the Cuyahoga River. I saw it last year when hubby and I attended a reunion of my mother's cousins. Long before our trip, I considered extending my Patriot's saga by having some of the McGowan clan head west. The past few weeks, I've bee...
