How can we help YOU to improve your craft?

The industry, albeit a business looking to make profit from one's imagination and words, has more than its share of unprofessionalism and literary, soul-cratering weasels in it. Don't become that lit soul-crushing weasel. Be honest, fair, show tough love when you need to, and above all else, let them vent if need. And yes, be a cheerleader for someone with a real gift for this. Just because a style isn't for you, doesn't mean it's not for somebody else or another reader. Books literally have saved lives. It saved mine. I pay it forward in exactly what you just read.

Have you ever critiqued, or been critiqued?

I've critiqued before, giving and receiving. But am officially retired from this, having been involved with critique groups since 1990.

Do you write in a specific genre?

YA/NA, a touch literary, mysteries, erotica, UF, paranormal, shorts, flash...and am willing to give Westerns a try if they're not formulaic I have to stick with.


I've completed 2 novels, plotting books 3 & more of a mystery-suspense series, book 1 of an Adult-Only magical mysteries, & enjoy writing flash fiction/shorts. When not writing, I'm also a pro amateur musician in voice, woodwind, & acoustic.
