BlurbIn a most improbable friendship, she found love. In a world where women were silenced, she found her voice.

From New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan comes an exquisite novel of Joy Davidman, the woman C. S. Lewis called “my whole world.” When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her Continue reading

One last update: the poll ends tomorrow, so if you haven’t voted but want to–please do! 🙂

So, “paranormal” was voted as the genre. I think Halloween is on everyone’s mind! 👻🎃🍬🧛 Continue reading

Baby Squirrel!

I haven’t posted about my neighborhood critters in a while.

baby squirrel 2

Since I’ve moved my laptop from the office to the dinette, I’ve seen a lot of squirrels. This, however, is the first time that a baby has visited. I cannot tell you how many different squirrels visit me in one day’s time, so why aren’t there more babies? So cute! Sorry the pic isn’t better. It’s taken through the window so I wouldn’t scare her away.

Baby squirrels!

OctPoWriMo Day 11, She Fell Through the Cracks

I am behind (hahaha, so what else is new?), but I will catch up!!!!

She Fell Through the Cracks

I lost myself in happiness until it died. Upon awakening, perspective altered. My soul ached. Where am I? What happened to the young woman I was?

Time transported me into a dire desert of aged pain.

My choice wavers between fighting and submerging.

My claws extend.

Repost: NaNo Planning Poll

Geez Louise, this has been updated so that I am speaking grammatically correct English.

Hey, folks. I’d I’m doing a repost. Now that it’s at a 3-way tie–who’d a thunk it?–I am wondering if those of you who commented also voted in the poll or if the comment was your vote? I have no way of knowing, unfortunately, unless I pay to upgrade my poll daddy account (cue hysterical laughter). Thanks!


Half the fun (okay, more than half) of doing NaNoWriMo on my blog in 2016 was making the planning polls.  (Yes, I’m a geek. No news there.)

This first one is just to get a genre. While I’d love to put every genre on the list, if I am going to be writing 50,000 words in it, I have to be somewhat comfortable writing in that genre. So, the list is comprised of ones I feel I can work with. If you’ve been following me long enough and think I’ve missed one (wouldn’t surprise me), let me know in the comments. I am open to reasonable suggestions.

Also, consider what you like reading and what you think we could have misery fun with.

The poll will close in a couple of days. Thanks for playing! 🙂
