Author has written 1 story for Romance.

You'd think, being a writer, I'd have something clever or meaningful to put here, something of substance. Apparently, you were dead wrong. I'm writing because when I don't, I get a rash.

I have recently deleted everything I've written for fictionpress from my account. Nothing like a good purge after almost ten years on this site. I felt like it was time to start fresh.

Check out Faith O'Brien's AMAZING new historical fiction: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2829828/1/ I highly, highly recommend it! Stop by, leave her a review and as always, keep reading and writing!

Clever or meaningful things other people have said:

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little."
-Anne Lamott

"If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud."
-Emile Zola

"Every stink that fights the ventilator thinks it is Don Quixote."
-Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

"Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards."
-Robert A. Heinlein

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein."
-Red Smith

"I get up in the morning, torture a typewriter until it screams, then stop."
-Clarence Budington Kelland

"There's no such thing as writer's block. That was invented by people in California who couldn't write."
-Terry Pratchett

Oliver and Margaret, Sitting In a Tree reviews
“Omigod, Oliver, just leave me alone!” In her peripheral vision, she saw him ask Jenna Samuels to do the couple skate with him. To “I Want It That Way.” Of course. Margie felt unexpected and frustrated tears prick her eyes and she blinked furiously...R&R
