Acknowledging the flip-side

A few years back, on a bright, sunshiny day, someone knocked on my front door. I wasn’t expecting anyone, and living in a rural mountainous area, it was seldom I had any visitors. Although solitude suits me, I was eager to greet my mystery guest. Who would it be? And why didn’t  Read More

So you’ve written a few novels, now what?

Non-fiction books, that’s what. Duh.

There are probably a million-and-one reasons a person chooses to become a writer. To express their creativity. Their love of the written word. The desire to contribute something meaningful to society. Do any of these apply to you? Brava/o if they do.

Whenever someone asks me why  Read More

Can you tell us about yourself?


First off, thanks so much for the interview, Vikram. I sincerely appreciate what you do. Summing up 51 years…OK, let me try. Done. Well, since genetics made becoming a male stripper an impossibility, I turned to writing instead.

Wholeheartedly I believe that we're  Read More

Monica Seles Makes Me Smile.

I never thought much about Monica Seles until she got stabbed. In the early-90s, my absolute favorite tennis players were Arantxa Sánchez Vicario (nicknamed “The Barcelona Bumblebee”) and Martina Navratilova (no nickname needed). They owned my loyalty. Quickly after turning pro, Monica turned Arantxa, Martina and the rest of the competition into  Read More

Brüno: Stereotype? Or a mediocre laugh at his, I mean, OUR expense?

Brüno, the film not the man, came out today. What are your thoughts? Personally, I can only laugh (at the film, at the premise itself). You know why? I’m old enough to recall the genius of Archie Bunker. A character (in the TV series, ALL IN THE FAMILY) created for us all  Read More

Freedom is Priceless. 5 Days Left ‘Til the Fourth. Get Ready.

Taking freedom for granted is like slapping history in the face. Many have suffered so we may live freely. I’m not just talking about the soldiers that fought for American independence against the British…I’m talking about ALL history, every kind of it.
Have you ever been in an abusive relationship? Have  Read More

Going back.

What happens when you look back? If you’re of a certain age, seeing the world in reverse may remind you that you’re not getting any younger. On the other hand, it may help you realize how far you’ve come. It’s a great way to measure just how many lessons you’ Read More

The time is NOW.

“I’ll get around to it.” “Not just yet.” “The timing isn’t quite right.”
It’s true, there’s a time for everything. But there’s no such thing as the PERFECT time. It doesn’t exist. The older I get, the more I believe that the “perfect” time for something is when  Read More
