A Writer’s Life

Over the moon and under the porch—it’s B Day

Holy Moly, me-oh-my-oh! I am doing my little happy dance all by myself. My long-awaited B Day is here. (No, I don’t mean my birthday, though it feels like it and then some.) This B is for my bare-naked book. Bare Naked at the Reality Dance, the book I’ve dreamed of and labored over for Read more...

You’d have thought I was going on Oprah

The second I finished the first draft of this post, the fearsome pictures arrived. Thank God—and Goddess (a photographer who, like my book/web designer, is improbably named Shannon)—they are great! But if you’d watched the lead-up to our shoot, you’d have thought I was going to be shot—or on Oprah, a prospect now relegated permanently Read more...

These words I write can strengthen that beautiful blood-red muscle Read more...

A page a day and presto—a book!

I woke up the other morning words rushing my head like gulls to bread on the beach. Seems I can no longer bear not to do the one thing I do best to inspire others—writing. After years of hearing that every successful author HAS to have a blog and resisting it like hell, I finally Read more...
