What I Learned from Writing a Series

 December 31, 2020

In November of 2013, I wrote the first book in what was to become my Dancing Through Life Series.  I had no idea at the time that this book would lead to eleven other books. Here I am, seven years later with nine books published and three more in various stages of the writing process. […]

Driving While Under the Influence of Writing

 December 4, 2020

Hemingway is reputed to have said, write drunk, edit sober. From my experience with NaNoWriMo the past eight years, I’ve got a different take on this. Writing provides its own type of high, with unexpected dangers – hence, driving under the influence of writing! Driving Under the Influence of Writing I thought of this while […]

Tunnel of Trees

 November 3, 2020

And now for something different. Amid all of the negative news, I thought it was time for something not related to the election or COVID – pictures from my trip to the Tunnel of Trees!

Our Inclusive God!

 October 21, 2020

In the beginning, God created humans in God’s image and likeness.

Peter Maurin, co-founder of the Catholic Worker with Dorothy Day, once said, “We need to create a world where it is easier to be good.” But is there a chance that that world is not a religious one, at least the way we are familiar with religion? Will that be a result of the changing […]

 August 5, 2020

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. While I wasn’t alive for this event, it had an impact that remains with me today. It was one of the reasons I was involved in the peace movement in my twenties, and a reason why I wrote my book, Buying Time. […]
