Am writing!

It’s a lonely world up on the dog house and when an article about one’s book gets out in the webisphere (I think I just made that word up?!), it’s a wonderful feeling. As such, today’s post will direct you to such an article which I am so pleased to share.

So without ado just click at will and hope you find it to your liking! Thank you booksbywomen.org!

Thoughts from a word-catcher

Old fashion words never go out of style, they just seem to be brushed aside. However, from Old-English to around your grandmother’s kitchen table, a person comes across these once familiar words like old friends. Although language is evolving, and word mutations have entered modern day language, it is not uncommon, especially for writers who wish to authenticate their jargon, to add flair and accuracy to their works.

And so, today’s blog plays tribute to the retired words, and like good soldiers they should not be forgotten. Whether you express yourself with brevity or tend to be long-winded, there is always room to rediscover.

Shameful perhaps, however, I hope it is more thought of as a helpful guide, I have slipped into my blog conversation my title, Once Upon a Time Words: Definitions of Often Read but Seldom Spoken Words. As you might imagine, I am a word lover.

 

It’s in the wild

It’s summer, the season for vacation, hanging out on the beach, sunning with friends, or just plain reading.

It’s also time for this author to bask in the satisfaction of  having completed another book and more so, to see it in the wild! Here’s to summer!

Orphan in America

A signature is a common word we often use to mean personally signed name or mark. However, a signature can also represent something more; such as a musician’s “signature piece” or a chef’s “signature dish”. An artist signs a signature on their painting or photograph… but for the author, the work is sometimes the signature. For today’s blog I bring you my signature.

“Bringing back to the twenty-first century an epic novel of substance and style, Orphan in America is a compelling fiction that follows three generations across vast distances and the impact of a dark and unfamiliar episode of America’s past; the Orphan Train.”
