Neither Heroine Nor Villainess

After today’s struggle with dressing myself (and you’d think after 42 years, I’d pretty much have that one on autopilot) I have but ONE thought — Never shall I have either heroine or villianess wear one of those laughable, horrendous contraptions I fought with this morning….. a bra where the straps hook into the back.  I’d say I looked like

The Rumors of My Death Are Greatly Exaggerated….

Not only can I say that, but over the holidays, one of my characters found out SHE can say it too! Up until now, everybody (including myself) thought it was over for her. Not so! The House on Evermore Lane is building up to a grand finale and this news really put a kink in things for some of our

How do I write thee? Let me count the ways……

It occurred to me yesterday, in a conversation with another writer, that (despite what they told us in english class) we all have different ways to write, to create the story, and to get everything put on paper.  My new friend, a sci-fi writer, was explaining how she carefully worked out her entire story plot, all the characters, all the

Don’t be hating on self publishing

Do you frown, wrinkle your nose or sneer at the concept of authors who self publish?  Why?  Is it because you think that this is a path for anyone to become an author — not just those of us who have the talent? Traditional publishing takes a long time.  You have to fight and beg for even the opportunity to

With All The People In My Head, How Do I Know Who My Muse Is?

A friend of mine made a comment the other day about how much she talks to me in her head (and assumably, my head).  I laughed and said something about ‘background chatter’.  Later, she wanted to make sure that she was not the reason for all the ‘boxes piled up in my head.’ And I had to tell her that

Great Excitement in Who-ville Tonight!

I have had a problem with the storyline I’m currently mangling into a book.  One of my favorite characters, Mina’s aunt Rowan, who is by reputation a strong, spirited, feisty, independent woman… err, witch… dies before we get a chance to meet her.  And even as I have written the story and been amazed and entertained watching the characters of

Interview With A Werewolf: Toby Talks About Mina

Lola Lyons, ace reporter for the Savannah Supernatural Times here, with Toby McGillis — werewolf, private eye, and general befriender of witches in distress. Lola:  Good evening, Toby.  How’s life been treating you lately? Toby:  It’s been interesting, I gotta say, watching the hole that Rowan’s death left in the supernatural community slowly being filled back in. Lola:  Had some

Dishing With A Dragon: Bing Speaks Out

Bing is the latest entry in Mina Grave’s life.  He’s a dragon made entirely of stone, changed from a human knight centuries ago by a curse.  In another life, Bing had a different name.  He was a knight and rumor, along with his vaguely constructed memories, someone much more. He saved Mina’s life when she was attacked by a hell

The House On Evermore Lane

This books is a rollicking adventure about a young witch whose been dropped (face-first, in her words) into a world she’s only ever dreamed about. You’ll laugh, be scared and have courage every step of the way with her. She’ll remind you that while not every heroine is a legendary fighter, invincible or immortal, it’s the ones who become real
