  1. My First Blog Post

    Hello world! Here goes my first blog post. Buckle up, more coming soon.

    I've been blogging for 5 years. I've written 8 textbooks, and I wrote a dog training book. I'm excited to be in this forum. I've been meeting a lot of fiction writers which is REALLY exciting because I'm used to writing about relatively dry material (insurance textbooks). This forum is adding some spice to my relatively boring non-fiction life!

    I love reading all of the various writing styles here and ...
  2. FINALLY GETTING SOMEWHERE - HURRICANE HELL

    So, I seem to be getting somewhere with my hurricane poems. I have been writing drafts and trying to hit the topic from different angles, cutting (let me try some of the cute little icons here) drilling away at the words immersing myself in the subject..... Think I have made some headway. Along this sojourn I have had a few sideline poems pop up in surprise always a welcome!

  4. Books of Ember: Another Late-night Review

    I really need to stop posting during the late hours of the night, but it's alright if you don't mind a little bit of crazy mingled in with the review.

    Tonight I finished the second book in the Books of Ember series, People of Sparks. Again, it's listed as a children's book, but much can be learned from the story and the characters.

    It looks like the author, Jeanne DuPrau, meant this book to be a dissection of war; a cause and effect book. Mission accomplished! It did ...
  5. Books of Ember: a Review.

    The Books of Ember series has been fantastic, sucking the reader into the world of Lina Mayfleet in an instant. As it's technically a series for children, it's not a complicated story to follow, and is easy to finish, but that does not make it bad.

    I've only read The City of Ember and have started People of Sparks, and I have no intention to stop.

    In the first book--City of Ember--a young girl and a young boy with big dreams bond once more over a common interest, and the ...
