I wrote SAVAGE IMPACT in 2009 and it was published in 2010.

Hospitalization robbed me of hope, but rehab taught me that I did have a future and as strange as it may seem, my life is better today than it was five years ago.

The Character As Storyteller by My Guest William Tooker

  The Character as Storyteller


Some people work best from an outline and I can certainly understand the role of structure in writing. When I sit down to write a story I have a loose outline generally including the character arc for the major players and what needs to have happened by the end. On more than one occasion I have been traveling down a road where I believed I knew what was around the corner only to be utterly surprised by the character having none of it. It's a…

Millions upon millions

Just about everybody has lottery fever right now with Mega Millions jackpot over $500,000,000 dollars. And just like everybody else, I’ve been daydreaming all morning about what I’d do if I win. (I’ve got $20 in quick picks). I could fulfill every dream I ever had. Buy big houses, a yacht, a private jet. Eat the best food prepared by master chefs. Would that make me happy? Of course. But what if I had all that and stopped writing? What if having every desired fulfilled drained me of the…

You: How did you get started writing for publication, Jeanette?

Jen: When my son was a baby, I wrote several poems for La Leche League, which they published in their international calendars.  I was thrilled to see my work in print, delighted that people all over the globe were reading it.

Poem: Divine Possibilities

Although Jehovah can never be contained,

with me, a portion of His presence can remain…

since I’ve placed an altar to Him in my heart.

Having desired an ongoing holy communion,

I’ve embraced my Lord in a spiritual union,

knowing my life is one… of His works of art.

While blurring church divisional boundaries,

I choose to focus on God’s heavenly guarantees

and enjoy the abundance of His…

O my Lord, it’s another beautiful day;

which resonates with Your… unfailing…
