Welcome to my blog. I hope you will return often for that second cup.

Writing has become more than a way to make lists or keep in touch with friends. It is a vital part of who I am. For the past few years I've been writing essays, devotionals, a memoir, and several novels. I invite you to join me on this site so we can explore ways together to improve our writings. Words can be beautiful or they can be hurtful - even devastating. The well-placed word or phrase, the choice metaphor, a fresh perspective - each can add to the reader's participation in sharing the thoughts of the writer. I invite anyone who wants to improve their work or even if you have never attempted writing beyond a grocery list to return often. Feel free to add your thoughts. There are no grades given - no critics to deter you. We do this as friends - chatting over their second cup of coffee. (or tea, if you prefer.)

Writing for fun

After eleven years of being innkeepers, my family asked me to write down our collected memoirs. The inn was in the Pocono Mountains of PA. It was named Pine Knob Inn. We had 38 rooms, a pool, tennis court, the Brodhead Creek running through, and 15 wooded acres. It was hard work, but we met many wonderful people and between the guests and the employees, there were many great stories to tell. I took on the job as historian and lo and behold, I found out it was fun to write. When I completed that, I began writing a novel, which ended up being a trilogy. I have not sent it out for publication yet as I know it needs heavy editing, but someday I hope to see it in print.

Nine books later, I'm still coming up with some neat plots. Two of my books will be published this year as e-books. Desert Breeze Publishing House will publish Moving On in mid-September and The Landlord in mid-December. They are quick, easy-read romance novels that you can feel safe allowing your grandkids to read.

Desert Breeze is a great publishing house with a varied sellection of books to choose from. I highly recommend their books and you can select the temperature of the romance - from light and sweet to something more exotic! Mine will be sweet to warm.

In the past I have had devotionals published. My faith is important to me and I hope to always honor God in my writings.
