  • Writing 1000 Words per Day

    I wrote 1000 words today. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a huge deal or much of an accomplishment to some, but for me, this is the first time I’ve gotten 1000 words out of me in months. I mean, months. Even though dredging those 1000 words from deep within was like pulling out my tonsils […]

  • Excerpt from Hannah’s Rainbow: Every Color Beautiful (Chapter 29)

    On Christmas morning, Brenda was busy playing with her new toys in the living room, remarking that she needed a cradle and a buggy for the baby doll. Hannah worked in the kitchen at preparing a sweet potato casserole for later that day.  The whole family would be gathering at her parents’ house that afternoon […]

  • Excerpt from Hannah’s Rainbow: Every Color Beautiful

    Standing around the perimeter of the ballroom rented for the occasion, Hannah shifted uncomfortably in a deep red taffeta evening gown and in heels that were too high for her taste.  She lifted her right hand to her hair and smoothed it down.

  • Excerpt from Rocks and Flowers in a Box (WIP)

    When Macy showed up at my side door with a large pot and an equally big smile, a subdued John standing behind her, I let them in graciously. “What did you bring?” I asked. “It smells wonderful.” Macy set the pot on my stove and turned on the burner. “Just some of my infamous vegetable […]

  • Excerpt from Rocks and Flowers in a Box (WIP)

    I filled two glasses and placed them on the table. We drew up mismatched chairs and drank. Tristan finished first and sighed with pleasure. I eyed him over the top of my glass. He gazed out the back window toward his house, the line between his eyebrows deepening. I put my glass down and asked, […]

  • Excerpt from Hannah’s Rainbow

    “I would like it very much if you were all here with me,” Hannah said, wheezing.  She coughed several times. “Mom!” Abbi exclaimed, rushing to her side. The coughing spell subsided, and Hannah shook her head, holding up a placating hand.  “No, no, it’s nothing.  Please don’t make a fuss.  There’s nothing to be done.  […]

  • Excerpt from Hannah’s Rainbow

    “It’s strange to be in such a quiet house,” said Hannah that evening.  “I can’t tell you how many times I wished for silence when the kids were driving me up a wall.  Now, it’s just us.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love that we can finally enjoy the peace and quiet as empty nesters, […]
