  1. Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of information. It’s nice to have recommendations from those you trust to get the help one needs. I love your blogs. P.S. Your books are in a number of my Christmas stockings this year 🙂

    • You are so welcome! I read/study as much as I can about writing; when I come across something that really helps me, I share the info. (Love to ‘pay it forward.’) Thanks for the positive feedback… and the novel sharing! 🙂
      Best always,

    • You’re welcome! I’ve read a lot of books about the art of writing; figured it was time to share my favourites. By the way, the first book on the list, “Wired for Story,” was recommended by Lois J.Peterson at the BC Federation of Writers weekend retreat. I downloaded it to my Kindle as soon as I got home; love it!
      Best always,
