My Dears, for the new year, I thought I’d try something a little different for the calendar in my News & Events tab…

I’ll be sharing a quotation from a celebrated author, one per week or so, along with the listings of readings, signings, and other author events of my own…and of course a few other significant events in my life…such as my husband’s birthday and my birthday and our dogs’ birthdays – as best as we can imagine, given that they’re all rescues, of course…

 You get the idea…

 Enjoy! And may we all savor liberal amounts of joy and justice in 2019!

    “I focus on the writing and let the rest of the process take care of itself. I’ve learned to trust my own instincts and I’ve also learned to take risks.”
