If things start looking wacky or the site crashes, you’ll know why. Hopefully all will be fine by Monday.
What is this fascination by readers of how an author lives? Or how the author writes? Or how the author rises in the morning and goes to sleep at night? I thought I’d be quick and say I don’t really care about those writers, but that got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be cool to know …Read More

Registration is open now. Northern Colorado Writers Conference is scheduled for April 22-23 in Fort Collins (north of Denver) but information on …Read More
I started posting these resolutions on my Facebook page and now hope to lure a few more visitors over here to read the whole list.
