Love Saves the Day by Gwen Cooper

Books: Love Saves the Day by Gwen Cooper Major meow-wow! Within a few pages, I knew Gwen Cooper had done the impossible — made me believe I was hearing the authentic interior monologue of Prudence, the rescued cat who is the major star of this novel. But not to worry, Prudence doesn’t have to carry the whole book. We also lap up chapters by Sarah, the woman who originally rescues Prudence, as well as her somewhat estranged daughter, a lawyer named Laura. Living on the lower East side of New York City, Prudence and Sarah have had a deeply...

Out of the Clutter of A Writer’s Mind

Out of the Clutter of a Writer’s Mind: I Hate Spiders! I hate spiders! I’ve mentioned that before, haven’t I? Maybe once… or twice? Hate… hate… hate… hate! Tina says that I am being irrational and if I leave them alone, they will leave me alone. Pfffft! Now who’s being irrational? Besides, I see nothing irrational in a little healthy fear of Satan’s spawn! And… the Bible tells us we must be ever vigilant of the devil and his minions. I rest my case. ~*~ To celebrate my 27th birthday (oh… it does look smaller when I use numbers...

Living with History – What Are Your Roots? Our lives are defined by our history. By the time we reach midlife, we can tell our story in a few sentences, summing up the most important things for a new acquaintance pretty quickly: “I grew up in Great Neck, New York, moved to Sherman Oaks, California at 15, college in San Diego, married my husband at 27. Two kids by 30. Worked as a retail buyer and manager, but opted to stay at home and raise my kids. Now I’m a blogger and about to turn 50. If only it...

Hello God. Is it you or is it us?

Hello God. Is it you or is it us? As a writer, I was finding no words to really describe how I am feeling about the massacre of 27 innocent people at the Sandy Hook school in Newtown CT last Friday. I just knew that I was devastated again because maybe the one true peacemaker might have been among those sweet six and seven year old babies who were slaughtered. I always go there when there is a mass murder. Did we just kill someone who could have brought peace to our world?  I started to think that way...

Punctuate Much? Not Really.

Punctuate Much? Not Really. My blog on spelling got a lot of comments and some excuses.  One reader reminded me I should have mentioned to, too and two.  That’s one that many people get wrong and for the life of me I don’t know why. Example:  Give it to me. I like it too.  Too means also. There are two of us.  Not one, but two. Kay Van Hoesen, founder of the website suggested we tackle punctuation.  Her example really tickled me.  She said: How about punctuation? Are you familiar with the book “Eats, Shoots & Leaves?”  A...
