Authors struggle daily and on-going to live a full life and to find the time to write. I have sat in on several workshops covering ways to solve this puzzle.

I admire and support these people, not just because a few admire and support me, but because they are funny, creative, emotional, and never stop learning.

While I was buying the rest of the serieses (what’s the plural of series? Two series?) that I discovered through an on-line workshop, I found that the title Winter’s Heat had been used a few times.

I’m very lucky to attend a weekly weight-loss support group where we talk about nutrition, road blocks to health, and one per month we have our own personal trainer come in and work with us. I feel that luck so deeply that I give back to the group by writing up the weekly notes. I’m a writer, it’s the best thing I can do for the group. Read the rest of this entry »

All the meetings of my local chapter of Romance Writers of America have been super valuable. I hope I can encourage you to find a chapter and join. Even an on-line chapter is valuable to a writer.
