The River and Whale Song: Hot Movie Ideas

Okay, I can smell fresh popped popcorn with extra melted butter...and a large ice tea to wash it down. There is nothing better than popcorn at the movies. Oh, wait! Yes there is! Eating popcorn at a movie...that is based on YOUR novel! At least, that is what I am imagining and have been for the past few years.

With three novels published and all three capturing the attention of the film industry, I think I may be on to something. Maybe all these years of visualizing my novels as…

The Restless Natives Win

The natives are restless. Readers of the free serialized novel, Horizons Past ( ) are getting anxious as the novel approaches the midpoint of Act II. They want to keep the action going, rather than reading a chapter each week. The question, "How can we get a copy of the whole book" keeps cropping up.

For those unfamiliar with Horizons Past, here is a brief synopsis:

Polygamy and Politics

I just read an article that spoke about republican presidential candidate Mit Romney. The article focused on the fact that he is a Mormon and his supporters are very concerned about the Mormons church views on polygamy. Romney expressed his opposition to the practice and that it was forbidden in the 1800’s. When I finished the article my spirit confirmed what I had known for quite some time. Our country is a very…

The 10 Common Traits of An Entrepreneur

1. Driven by an internal value or meaning - Example: my # 1 value that I want and need most in my life is freedom. Freedom of choice, freedom of expression, freedom to explore, for others it may be creativity they must express their creativity and can only do so in their own unique way. Others have a real value around making a contribution or to make a difference in the world.

I never see money as the #1 priority or driving force.

2. Natural Leaders - They are people who… Continue

I don’t know about all of you but the forest fires that are going on in this nation are making my spirit ponder a couple of things.

Finding Your Spiritual Muse

One of my personal missions as a published author, is to help other writers and authors in any way I can, when I can. So when a friend asked me to help her promote a course that she is teaching, I was very happy to. Catherine Kuehne is a member of the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC). I have seen her at a number of events lately, always supporting authors, including my own book launch for Whale Song. Now it's my turn to support her.…

Patience Really Is A Virtue

Anyone who has ever worked with me can attest that there is usually a method to my madness. As in painting, I study the composition and take in everything. Starting from the outside in, I get to know the author and their work so I can add the ‘heartbeat’ to their work. Sound strange? It isn’t but it creates an awful problem for me… authors are not patient clients.

I have heard it all and it always ends with: ‘… but I am so impatient’.

Well, think of this: it is very… Continue

The N Word

My aunt who is at least twenty years my senior recently asked me a question that took me by surprise. It was a question that immediately touched and ignited my spirit. Her question to me was what is the difference between a white person using the N word and black person using the N word ? My answer to them was that there is a very big difference and I took the time out to explain to them…
