Journey to Imagination

Bird of Paradise bushes in California remind me of creatures on the alert for predators.

California oranges are delightful!

Author Helen Henderson features To Catch a Fox on her blog titled Journey to the Stars and Worlds of Imagination. While my novel isn’t as fantastical as Helen’s writing, my primary setting for To Catch a Fox is a locale I imagined somewhere in southern California. I had a lot of fun creating my cult-like retreat.

Thanks Janet

Do I prefer to write heroes or villains?

Today, author Janet Lane Walters interviews me on her blog Eclectic Writer. She asked me some intriguing questions, such as which do I enjoy writing more: heroes, heroines or villains?

Panel on Working with an Editor - I'm third from the left

Conference room – Panel on Publishing Options

I enjoyed my weekend trip to Wordbridge, Lethbridge’s inaugural writers’ conference. Eighty-five people attended, a good turnout for a new event held in a small city.  I met a few new people, spent time with others I’d met before, and found I liked the intimate atmosphere of the conference. Congratulations to all the organizers. Cheer’s to a second conference next year – in warmer weather!

Launch Date

The launch for To Catch a Fox is set for Tuesday, March 26th, 7:00 p.m. at Owl’s Nest Bookstore.

Hope you can make it!
