I’ve Been Texting With A Dead Woman

I’ve been texting with a dead woman. But let me explain… Someone from my group of writer friends recommended a book to me. She said it was as quirky and out there as some of the work that I’ve written.  So I got the book, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read before. The author,[…]

I feel so sad when they ask, “Do you have a scholarship fund? Is there any way I could apply for assistance to attend?” and I[…]

I’m very pleased to announce that VoyageLA Magazine has published a feature article on me, and of course it’s mostly about Women At Woodstock.

What I Experienced At the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference – And Something About Cows

I just returned from the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference, and I confess I attended for two distinct purposes: #1: to get feedback on my writing, meet other writers, and learn about the world of publishing, and #2: to run something of a reconnaissance mission: How does this conference compare to the Women At Woodstock Writers[…]
