about me


I own a small motel and bed and breakfast on Lake Michigan at a popular vacation spot.

I have a body of published work, but I have not been published for a long time.

I would love to exchange critiques. I promise to be quite prompt. I am a slow but careful reader, so my edit will likely be of your first chapter.

That's me on the floor. The other four are grandchildren. One came all the way from Ethiopia to be my grandchild.

favourite books

The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck, the most beautifully written book I know.
Accidental Tourist, Anne Tyler; I love all her books. When I need to learn technique, I go to her.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love Zelda
The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath. A tragic blazing star.
Little Women, Louise May Alcott, read it repeatedly on and on as a child.
Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier.
P.D. James, all her mysteries

LIsa, You are a poet--that is vividly apparent in the pitch and C 1. You are a sister in heart as your MC is Angela and so is mine. I read the pitch and ch 1 a couple of times because I loved them and I wanted to look for some critique. I will only give a few suggestions if I think the wor... view book

Lovely use of phrases and of verbs. The situation is terrible and heartbreaking. My thought is that the phrases and thoughts and concepts seem more mature than those of a five year old. Basically, I feel a problem with voice. In my own book, I am on the umpteenth draft, all due to trying to get... view book

Good grief! There is no way to stop reading at the end of the prologue--the intrigue and all of it is aimed to interest us readers. I am going to back quite happily. I can't say why exactly, but I think find the opening though bold and scary, somehow a little flat. That is because I am not... view book
