My Bookshelf

Because I constantly have my nose in a book, people often ask me what I’m reading. The answer is never easy because usually I have five books going at one time: commercial fiction, literary fiction, interesting non-fiction, self-help non-fiction, something on the writer’s craft. And, of course, at night I read fiction for the dirty mind!

This book list will constantly change, so keep checking in. If you have a book you think I just have to read, there is a contact form at the bottom of the page.

Do You Ever Talk To Strangers?

I've read Gladwell's Blink and Outliers and The Tipping Point. He manages to make intimidating subjects accessible. So I'm giving Talking To Strangers a shot. I am listening to it and I love how he uses the real voices throughout. For example, when speaking of a speech by Clinton, he plays a clip. I'll let […]

This One Will Take Me A While

I've 'needed' to work through this book for a long time. I kept putting it off because it kind of scared me. Well, I'm putting on my big girl panties and doing the damn work.

  • All of my novels, at least so far, have an element of mental illness within a character.  Decide to Hope is the most autobiographical in that I struggle in many ways exactly as the female protagonist.
