Game of Thrones: Lessons for Writers

You know I couldn’t not comment on #GameOfThrones now that it’s ended. And, no matter what I think of the ending itself, I have to say that the writing on this show has been phenomenal.

Martin … Read More Game of Thrones: Lessons for Writers

Top 5 On My Bucket List

We all have one (or we should). A bucket list. That list of things we want to do/experience/accomplish before we kick the bucket. I love the idea of a bucket list because it means that, right up to the end, you never stop trying new things or looking for new experiences. I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who loved to travel, … Read More Top 5 On My Bucket List

When I was 9 years old, I won a writing contest in my school district for an essay about Abraham Lincoln. What? Someone thinks I’m a good writer? Well, then, I must be.
