Let’s get to know each other, I’ll start!

You can learn a lot about a person by the questions others ask them. The one I hear the most is:

“Are they all yours?” That always strikes me funny, I can’t help but wonder what kind of a person would steal 14 kids and then take them all shopping for groceries with her? If I had a quarter for every time I was asked that question, I would not have needed to write a book, I could buy a TV station and share my story that way. I do indeed have fourteen children, and they really are all mine,… Continue

New posts at Aspiring Author

At the Aspiring Author we've been discussing some of the reasons writers are aspiring authors instead of published authors.

Performance anxiety and insecurity, lack of time, lack of support, and not being honest about the quality of the work were just some of the reasons provided by published and aspiring authors.

We've begun to… Continue

Along Route 66

I just returned from a road trip from Texas to Illinois, crossing through Oklahoma and Missouri on the way. Much of this trip took us along Route 66. As any seasoned road-tripper knows, one passes ancient gas stations and Greyhounds. (We called them Road Dawgs when I worked there.) Truckers and trains. Red barns in various stages of beautiful decay. Yawning green pastures dotted with all forms of newly born animals. Fruit stands selling local plums and peaches. Waterways with names like Honey… Continue

Sweeter and more delicious than chocolate...

Sweeter and more delicious than chocolate…

I have friends who are a little nutty, some who are just a hoot, some creative, others loving, some generous, and others who are a walking image of Christ…and this weekend in Dallas, I just happened to be with two who possess all said attributes.

I attended a speaking engagement outside of Dallas. After I spoke, my dear friends picked me up and graciously invited me to their home for the evening.

There we were, chatting… Continue
