I originally wrote the following post for Storyteller Squad—a blog my small online critique group started a few years ago to share writing tips and book reviews—but by the time I finished writing the piece, it had become a message I wanted to share here, too. So...enjoy. 😋 I sometimes feel like a rebel when… Continue reading How to Recognize a Lie? Know the Truth

Oh, my--I really haven't done a very good job keeping up with this blog, have I? Part of the reason for this is because I'm trying to devote more time to my WIP. I'd looooove to have it available for the 2020 Christmas season...which requires a whole lotta work before then (*whispers: because I'm only… Continue reading Tinsel Giveaway!
