For the past six months, I’ve struggled to get enough time and energy to write. I’ve made promises to myself, set aside special times to write (which always got eaten up by other pressing matters), and then just decided it wasn’t going to happen for a while. A business emergency sucked the life out of my head and required me to learn a whole new business – and run it – while keeping a roof over my head with my consulting. It’s been a bit of an emotional ride as well, as I learned some things about a family member that disappointed me beyond belief. But there seems to be…

I may not have decided to go this year except that I saw the word SuperTramp on one of the pages. Of course, it wasn’t SuperTramp, it was Roger Hodgson, the lead singer and composer of so many SuperTramp songs. I had to go…had to! So I talked to my…

Do you write with music in the background? Or do you need it to be completely quiet? Or, like me, do you select music according to what you are writing? I can rarely write with music in the background that has lyrics – I sing the words in my head and can’t write.So I listen to instrumentals (doesn’t that sound like something your parents would listen to, or elevator music?) When I wrote You Belong To Me, I was in a smooth jazz mood. One of my favorite smooth jazz musicians is Rick Braun. And this song has become associated in my mind with Colin, the hero in the book….
