The short version: I write novels, and I help others improve their novels.

Still with me? Here’s a slightly longer version.

    I love your site. I find your bio interesting as I am in the same boat you once paddled. I am a journalist who would love to make the jump to novel writing. Was it hard to make the transition?

      hello, Caretaker! Interesting you should ask – I still do some journalism, but am aware I have had to unlearn some journalistic habits to write fiction. I am preparing a post on this very subject, in fact – so stay tuned. And thank you for your compliments.

    I also love your website. The post about beginning & the difficulty of finishing a book is great. It is difficult.

    Good Luck!
    P.s. Years ago, I would have thought: good grief! I don’t need to wish her luck! She has so much work under her belt; I’m the one who needs good luck.

    But experience has shown me that every time you begin a new work it is a struggle as if you have never done it before. So I leave you my hopes that you do wonderful rewarding work.

      Thank you, Linda! You’re right – every book feels like a raw beginner. Same to you!

    Hi, Roz! You’ve got a great blog–as many others have discovered. Which is why I, too, nominated you for the VBA. Have a great day. 🙂

    I randomly stumbled over your blog, and I realized, I have your book on my Kindle! I’m trying to write a story, but it’s not going anywhere right now. I’m just thirteen, though. I’m planning out some of the characters and plot, though.
