The one you can’t get out of your head

I’ve been working on a novel for several years now.

Accolades!

I think I may have scared the boys a bit this morning. There might have been an excessive amount of manic whooping and hollering and small children swung up in the air around the living room in my arms before the hour of 7:30 am. Which, the boys would be certain to assure you, is […]

In thoughtful and complimentary words, he accurately pegged exactly what I’d felt were the highlights and failures of the story I’d submitted. AND he specifically said that he’d like to read any future work I might have. I’m a bit thrilled. […]

My first two reviews…and one of them is quite nice!

I’m flying high today, rediscovering motivation that helps me find the time to write amidst chaos and upheaval, thanks in part to discovering that Locus and SFRevu recently published reviews of Sunlight! Sam Tomaino from SFRevu posted a lovely review back at the end of October. “A very touching story…” Hooray! Lois Tilton from Locus […]

I am proud to say that I have not at any point been particularly hurt by a rejection (although I do coincidentally seem to have a […]
