I Can’t Write

It’s one of those moments in which I sit down to write, but every time I do, I’m overwhelmed by sorrow. You see, a father has just returned home from a tragic sea voyage only to discover he had been gone for seven years and his dearly beloved wife is dead. I’m trying to work through his reaction to the shock, but it’s bitterly unfair.

It’s moments like these where I hope the story moves my readers as much as it has me. It’s moments like these when I feel the strongest as a writer. You can make a reader laugh or scare their boots off with a wild adventure, but if you can break their hearts for a character, make them bleed with him, that is the highest achievement.

Please, excuse me. I have to go comfort a grieving husband and hope and pray he’ll be all right in the end.

Whew! <My Life

I finished knitting a scarf I started last year.
I’m working on an afghan I started two years ago.
I made pizza, got a stew in the slow-cooker, and started juicing.
I’ve been feeling pretty darn productive.
Oh yeah, and I published another book.
Leaving Facebook was the best decision of my life. I am much more relaxed not stressing about what everyone is doing, thinking, saying. I’m really enjoying this.

So, hey fantasy fans, my next book will tickle you pink. It’s got all the bells and whistles: sword fighting, gambles, chases, escapes, true love… wait. That’s The Princess Bride. Sir Ivan’s Train; Dragon King introduces two orphaned sisters who unwittingly board a magical train bound for a world of mystery, magic, and mayhem. They run around with a gang of thieves, dine with kings, and even meet a witch with a strange prophesy. “Go east. Defeat the dragon.” But what are two girls going to do against a dragon? Find out in Sir Ivan’s Train; Dragon King
