Every story ever told participates in a universal pattern as words grow and expand into sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. What is left after the end of the story has the potential to transform not only the writer but all those who read the story as well.

Do you sometimes feel as if you're more sensitive than other people?

Requests for plot and transformational consultations are streaming in from around the world with people’s’ fervent expressions. This is the year I’m passionate to finish my novel. I promise to change. I’m hell-bent (determined to achieve something at all costs) to succeed. Before you begin any resolution, first plot a plan.

Last month’s NaNoWriMo book giveaway brought me chuckles and warm feelings — so much so… I’m inspired to keep the joy flowing. I have extra copies of all my books.
