Green Free Library: My Old Friend

This facebook picture of my hometown library this morning brought such a warm nostalgic feeling to my soul. As a young teenager, I spent many after-school hours here in complete quiet because the librarians demanded silence. Whispers were acceptable, but any more than a whisper brought steely glares from those in charge. However, that silence […]

A Man Called Ove

I loved this book! A Man Called Ove is probably the best book I’ve read in a long time with such a smooth and complete character development. From the very beginning, I looked hard to find any redeeming quality in Ove, a grumpy old man. Even though I disliked him, Ove drew me in to […]

In Farewell, Aleppo, Claudette Sutton shares her father’s gift to her: his story. Late in her father’s life, Claudette learns of his people, culture, and his struggles as he experiences the […]

How to Hitchhike from Texas to California in 3 Days in 14 Easy Steps

Hitchhiking is the least expensive way to get from point A to point B in any country. The only thing needed is a desire to be carefree throwing “caution to the wind.” Once that desire hits, you must make detailed plans and consider contingencies to that plan if #1, you have no money or #2, […]

A Fun Read for Middle School and Beyond!

I am an author of non-fiction with a secret love of dragons and all I can say is “Wow”! C. Lee McKenzie’s Sign of the Green Dragon kept me guessing every inch of the way. McKenzie’s imagery had me searching the cold walls of the cave in the dark, while feeling the breeze of the dragons’ wings […]

The Argument for the Oxford Comma

I’m in the middle of a freelance editing job and the argument for/against the Oxford comma rears its ugly head once again. The Oxford comma was first seen in England in 1905 and agreed to by Strunk’s edition of The Elements of Style in 1918. The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) still recommends its use. Some grammarians, […]

Great Read on Life in Haines, Alaska

My daughter just returned home after a 6-week surgery rotation at the Anchorage Native Medical Center. Because she knows her mom (me) has Trip to Inner Alaska as #1 on my Bucket List and she knows I write and read memoirs, she brought me Heather Lende’s If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name. Heather […]

Words of Wisdom from a Very Special Friend

I met Jean Tate Howard just as she turned a very young 84 years. She was one of my first Legacy writing students. She wrote and spoke much wisdom into my life and into the lives of the other students in my class. The ladies from that first class would not stop writing and after […]

Memories Triggered

The busyness of life has taken me away from my writing for a while. However, my ponderings never stop. The simple things of life bring so many opportunities to marvel at God’s creations and goodness. As I helped my 94-year old mom back into bed this morning, the workings of the human mind made me […]

A Must Read: The Promises of Ophelia Bennett

9781602903777-Perfect.indd I have read many of Cec Murphey’s books and loved them all. However, in my estimation, his best yet is one of his newest fictions The Promises of Ophelia Bennett. The quiet Mrs. Bennett brings so much more to her students than the ability to read and write. In her promises, her “poorest of […]
