It was a rude question, in my opinion. Not the words said, but the way she said them. "How many?" she squeaked. "Don't you have enough to do? Isn't one book at a time enough? What about the presentations you do?" "Did - the kid's taking that over now." "Still, three courses, and while you're … Continue reading How Many?
Here is a part-quote from a first reader about the new story (Not On The Cards): I enjoyed the book. It read like a short story -- very fast paced, very focused on plot. I got caught up in Chiri's desires. Isn't that what every writer wants to hear? Thank you, M. Ooh! And I … Continue reading A Storyteller’s Life
I'm about to make some noise, so be prepared. Trumpets blast the audio-waves into your mind, harps twinkle stardust into your eyes -- ta-dah! Here it is! The new story is ready, it's available, and this is where you find it. A simple mistake, to fall in love. Worse, to bear the child in … Continue reading Not On The Cards – Finally
It was supposed to be published today. Everything is ready. Truly. Even the pics for the covers. I got all the stuff together, spent (wasted) the equivalent of a whole work day doing the formatting for the paperback version, uploaded and went on to the cover. It loaded, stopped, error message. Suddenly, the day turned … Continue reading Not Today

Remember them? Well, this is the new version. I'm going to do a rant. Why? The Word of the Daily Post is Messy. It brings to mind all the incredibly senseless rhetoric out there about 'improving our lives' while doing nothing about keeping our world clean and sustainable. We are filthy creatures. We flush our … Continue reading The Soap Box
Today was the day. It was. It was on the calendar, marked as a definite ending. The new novel to be published this day. It didn't happen. Now, I could say I had a premonition it would be this way, but it wasn't anything to do with that. Nor with the injury that's slowed me … Continue reading The Wednesday Word
One of those days where I consider options. Choose this, go there, plan that, wing something else. Consult the charts, do a reading, remember a dream. That's a good one. Remember a dream. A dream I've had all my life, pops up about every six or eight weeks. I fly over the Murchison River. It's … Continue reading Sunday
