On a Quest for Readers Part Two

The other day on WOW! Women On Writing‘s blog I wrote a post about my quest for readers. If you want to read that post, you can check it out here. Basically I am wondering, how does an author find readers? I have asked my publisher and writer of dystopian women’s fiction, Robin Tidwell, this very same question. She talked to me about how I don’t really have books in […]

The True Story of Maggie Mae: My New Picture Book

I’m thrilled with my debut picture book, Maggie Mae, Detective Extraordinaire: The Case of the Missing Cookies, out at the end of August; and it’s just, well, as cute as a bug in a rug! Really!  (Although a bug in  a rug is not that cute, is it?) Jack Foster did an amazing job with the illustrations, and the cover design by my publisher Guardian Angel Publishing just pops out […]

Help Me With Time Travel Books

Okay, so I recently read two great “time travel” books–Landline by Rainbow Rowell, which has a magic phone line to the past, and Time and Forever by Susan B. James, which has an actual ticket you buy to travel back in time and experience life in an earlier time. Neither book is like Marty McFly, where he starts to disappear if his parents don’t actually get together in the Back […]

Top Ten Things I Worried About as The Mother of An Infant

Mothers worry. I guess fathers do, too, but it’s a different kind of worry. I think my husband would not have worried about anything to do with our daughter during her first year of life, unless I told him to. I would say things like, “We need to worry about this. We need to discuss this. We need to figure this out.” His usual response was: “I don’t remember any […]

The Abstract Idea of Cats

  My relationship with cats has not always been a merry one. In fact, a recent conversation with a friend in the back of class summed up my entire relationships with the species. We were discussing the approaching Valentine’s day and she was commenting that: “I’m always going to be alone. It’ll just be me and my eighty-seven cats.” “Wow, you really like cats that much?” I asked. “Well, I […]
