Much to my consternation Bruce signed us up for a Dawn Walk one morning. Dawn starts at around 5.00, and it is the best time of day to see the animals. I loathe leaping out of bed early (or even getting slowly out of bed early) but found myself (with Bruce) climbing in to a Land Rover at 4.30 one morning. The others in the group were young people – in their late twenties or early thirties.
I had a moment of concern about this age gap, but Bruce and I are both very fit, though a…Continue

If you haven't noticed, I have been taking an hiatus from writing. But, that's not to say that my hiatus will be permanent. Not by a long shot. Instead, I have been immersed in reading autobiographies which always whet my appetite to write.
One of the books I had the pleasure of reading was about Frances Farmer. I had always heard the stories and even saw a clip from the show, "This is Your Life" that featured her very dark life. She was a hopeful, shining…

Excerpt from Discover What You Are Here To Do: Find The Clues, Follow Your Path by best selling author Nicola Grace.
"When I’m on the road speaking, I often joke about the story of my life as if I’ve stuffed up, done everything wrong and made wrong decisions that lead me up the garden path of nowhere. Part of my introductory speech often goes something like this – “I wanted to be a dancer so I studied history. I wanted to live in a tropical country so I moved to Wisconsin. I wanted to…Continue

You are not who you think you are. You are not that face you see in the mirror every morning. You are not someone’s child, or someone’s parent, or partner or friend. You are not the physical body you admire or criticize when you take a shower, or when you get dressed.
Neither are you the profile description on your social networking page, or your high school diploma, your driver’s license, or your title at work. You are not defined by your career, or the things you own, or the family…Continue

Whether an author loves or dreads them, whether you consider them the best part of the job or the worst part, the fact of the matter is that author interviews are part of the job. And it’s important to make the most of every opportunity.

I wrote two stories for the new Chicken Soup for the Soul book, entitled Messages From Heaven. You can read a third story on my author…Continue
