  • The writing life... March 4, 2014
    Starts, stops, lulls, creative sparks, flashes of brilliance, rewrites, doubts, re-dedication and determination, and ultimately writing is happening! Book two is in the works, though painfully slower than I'd hoped...but still faster than book one! Loving the continued support of friends, family, readers, and peers!I have decided to finish writing the complete series and then […]
  • Google me this, Batman? January 3, 2014
    Why are there more than a couple of words in the English language to describe a quantity of "2 or more?"  Aside from the obvious word "two" which can only ever be a quantity of 2, you would think there existed  one more word that could be substituted to specify a quantity of two, and […]
  • I LOVE Barnes & Noble Bookstores December 5, 2013
    I was fortunate enough to be a part of the booksellers "Discovery Friday" event on November 22nd, 2013. I spent the day at the Barnes & Noble in Morrow, GA, where I grew up, and was able to promote and sign books most of the day.  Amy Allen, the CRM at that location, was extremely […]

  • IWSG & Embracing My Turtle Side
    Hello and Happy March, all! I sat out the February IWSG because I was finally making some progress on my writing and wanted to devote my time and energy to that, but unfortunately that sense of progress didn't even last through the whole month. Instead, I was hitting my head against more walls and once […]

  • Dance & Text November 25, 2015
    In preparing students in the K-12 Dance Education program here at UTM (University of Tennessee Martin) I love exploring with them other ways of reaching students in the class. One way is the use of poetry or some form of writing. By applying their knowledge of either dance techniques or use of choreography with the […]
  • Tea & Writing 2 July 10, 2015
    Well this morning I am drinking my Indian Spice tea. And again my tastes begin to translate the story in my head. So from the last blog entry I gave you all a snippet from my new story it continues like this: “Clara! Are you home? It’s Akiko” Akiko was now my guardian. My mother […]
  • Stream of consciousness July 9, 2015
    Stream of Consciousness created after my father’s passing— when creating this I also thought of my time as a choreographer and what happens to the brain during the creative process– for me so much goes on and I wanted to do something that brought a sense of mystery and whimsy. when writing this new story […]

  • “Reviews” / Memorable Fancies #2141 March 22, 2018
    [“I am conscious of becoming alien.” Georges Bataille] Things, events I took for granted, now seem strange, perhaps unreal, like a play where I exist only as a minor character, there to comment on the leads but unable to deflect, once again, their repeated fates. And all this drama will happen again the next night […]
  • “The Disappointment” / Memorable Fancies #2140 March 21, 2018
    [“…the disappointing character of the real…” – Clément Rosset] Look, father said, that’s a balloon! I looked, but so what? Look, mother said, that’s an airplane. It’s taking off! I looked. Can’t we have something else, I asked when I learned to speak, besides the real? Mother and father seemed to be worried by that […]
  • “And” / Memorable Fancies #2139 March 20, 2018
    [“It is beautiful to be an ‘and.’” – Maxine Chernoff] It’s beautiful to be an “and,” even though you’re an afterthought to who or what came before you, as thoughts rush on past you toward some other who or what. Being an “and,” is a lot better than being an “or,” all alone, or a […]
