Something About Me and My Book:
After years of writing for newspapers and magazines, I became a technical writer. Thirty manuals later I turned to freelance writing and editing.

My books include:

Hooking the Reader: Opening Lines that Sell
WHAT hooks the reader?
This book contains original material from more than 100 bestselling authors writing about their openers in fiction (mystery, romance, science fiction, western, mainstream).

Living with Big Cats: The Story of Jungle Larry, Safari Jane, and David Tetzlaff

I may actually be touring with my books in Florida this fall, one of which is about writing -- The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. Would love to speak at your group, if that's a possibility.

Thanks for you invite Shara. I am in New Mexico so it would be a bit far for me to come to meetings. I may come that way in the near future with book signings though.

Thanks Shara. I will certainly look in to this. Thank you for the invitation to do so.

I'm working on a humorous book about garbage collectors and recyclers: Let's Talk Dirty about Garbage. My co-author and I have interviewed many garbage men and women across the nation. Lots of stories!

If you know anyone who'd want to be interviewed about their stories (with their name or anonymous) let me know.

Take care,

Hello again, Shara. As you can see, I am still doodling around here. My day is going great, busy but great. I have a writing project that I am working on for a client. Actually, I am rewriting and editing it. This client hopes to self-publish his master piece. When all is finish, it should be a pretty good nonfiction read.
I love staying busy, what about you? When I am not working for someone else, I am working on my projects. I have a new children's book coming out in the near future. I am really excited about it and I love the cover art. I am sure it will grab the attention of our young readers.
Now, what have you been doing, since you are catching up?

Chat with you real soon,

Hello Shara,
Thanks for your message. I will look into the information that you provided with me. It would be nice being connected to Florida since I have a deep desire to move there. With this activity, perhaps it will bring me closer to my dream.
Have a great and blessed day.

Hi Shara

My email let me know you'd stopped by. I'm afraid not much is going on for me here. I'm so short on time to take part in these sites and we I do put a post up on my blog, no one ever responds so I figured I wasn't getting many visits to my page anyway. I do try to answer folks when they contact me though. I'm busy editing myself. Copy editing a long manuscript - 640 pages! It's an incredible story, though, so I'm enjoying it tremendously.

I would love to join Shara, I like having my site linked to one in Florida. My editing skills have no boundaries. I work for people as far away as Europe. Thanks for the heads up...

Hi Shara

Thanks and it's good to 'see' you! You are one busy lady. Sorry I missed Orlando this year.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
