Greetings from France!

I’m currently attending a writing retreat/workshop at La Poterie in Château-du-Loir. I’ve only been here one full day, but already I’m learning so much. Also feeling nourished by the fresh air and beautiful environment. I don’t know that I’ll be updating much because the goal is to focus on writing, but I promise lots of…

Author Events in Planning

My trip to France for the writing workshop and retreat is slowly coming together. I have my plane tickets, my train tickets, and my hotel reservation for the one night I’ll be in Paris. A friend has likewise advised me on how to get from the airport to the train station, so I will need…

2015 Summary

We’re staring down the barrel of the end of the year, and while there’s still plenty of time for things to happen, I’m feeling a tad retrospective. So here’s a summary of my year (so far). After more than a year of sending out queries, I found a publisher for The Fall and Rise of…

Returned!

I’m back from London, and it was a lovely trip. We had remarkably good weather, but then that always happens to me—I’ve been told London loves me so much, the sun shines when I’m there and then the city cries when I leave. Don’t know if that’s true, but I like to think it is.…

London Bound

Don’t panic if you hear even less from me than usual in the next week. I’m off to London in a couple days, and there’s much to do before I go, never mind the whole writing thing besides. (I want to try and get a good amount done before I leave.) Be sure to keep…

Spectacular Settings

The above is one of my favorite photos. It’s pretty mundane, I suppose, but it’s the wallpaper on my iPhone. I love London, and I was just walking down this street one day with the idea of going on the Eye, and couldn’t stop myself snapping this shot. Today I’m participating in the WEP Challenge…

Yes! I am still alive!

I was just away on vacation and had little to no online access. Alaska, folks. That’s where you go to really get away. And I saw bears! A momma black bear and her two cubs, in fact. And bald eagles, and salmon (hence the bears), and orca and humpback whales (also with calfs). Quite lovely.…

Halfway Point

So 2015 is half over, which makes it a fine time to check in with those goals I’d set at the start of the year. 1. Get an agent for The Fall and Rise of Peter Stoller. Okay, so I didn’t land an agent (though there was lots of great feedback, yet somehow I kept…

A lot of things happening, and I’m feeling buzzy, which makes it difficult to sit and write. Press releases are being drawn up (and I’m being asked for quotes!), and tickets to see Hamlet in London in September (and we all know how I do love Hamlet) . . . And then the little things…
