David vs. Julia, continued

I stared across the counter at him with steely resolve. He was sitting at his usual table, one hand gripping the edge of the Daily Oklahoman that hid his face from view, the other idly playing with the handle of his cracked coffee mug. He had been a regular at the diner for almost five […]

Tinkering with Stories

For the past three months I’ve been working on To See Clearly, the third installment in my Grover Cleveland Academy series. Unfortunately, I haven’t made as much progress as I’d hoped I would by now, and I’m getting discouraged. It almost makes me not want to write at all. But not writing makes me feel […]

If you’re reading this post and you haven’t bought a copy of Diving In yet, then shame on you! How can you like me as a person but not love what I have written?!?! Just kidding. I know that every book isn’t for every person. Maybe you don’t like my writing style. Or you think […]

Remember me…Jessie?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Which you probably didn’t need me to point out. You had probably forgotten all about me and now here I’ve gone reminding you that I was absent. Oops. But life keeps moving on even while I keep thinking about writing posts, and then the time that I had […]
