The Writer's Life

breaking down boundaries to the exuberant life of writing

Like Cra-a-a-a-zy Man! Our final party for #WriterlbsOff is a wild, crazy, cool party traveling back to the 1950s to jive with the Beats and those pretending to be Beatniks in the campy movies. We are really cool, hip writers and we have earned our rebellion. We have a lot of reading to do on […]

If you are a writer, you probably hope for those times when your ideas feel passionate and writing flows wildly. You may try all kinds of ways to get into that state to write your next novel. Those moments can be productive and rewarding when they happen, but what about all the other times? Wouldn’t […]

Admit it, what is your inner most desires…mad passionate creative flow or mad passionate sex? Hard to choose? The two experiences may not be that different and may be connected. They both involve total surrender of control, and create powerful energy full of electricity. Some experts even propose that if you experience one, you are […]

Why can’t I get more writing done?…Nothing I write is any good. I had my novel published, so what, now I have to prove I can keep producing. As a writer, do you ever feel like you are never satisfied? Are you always discontented? If you are, you are not alone. Most writers and creative […]

The Love Boat is Sailing for our February Party February and March can be challenging months to endure. I look out my window to piles of deep snow and the temps are dropping one more time. Even if you live where the weather is more pleasant, this can still be a difficult time of year […]

Current Writing Projects

Tyler Corner is an historical novel about the lives of two women who were cousins growing up on Iowa farms in the 1920s - 1930s. It is based on the experiences from my own family and unsolved ax murders in Villisca, Iowa. I am writing this novel  for NaNoWriMo 2010.

I am creating ebooks and courses for writers, and anyone who wants more creativity and transformation in their lives. The courses are based on Narrative and Poetry Therapy & Humor.

Mafia Frostbite: A Mafia Family Christmas is my first fictional series. It is followed by a sequel series titled Twisted Family Bonds. It is a dark humor soap opera about the Kaszinovs, a Russian Mafia  Family.

LoveCommitmentPassion_cover R-Evolutionary Nights is a novel of romance and suspense set in Prague, Budapest and Wisconsin.  Alex and Jack are in love, but must escape the influences of the Russian mafia that has infiltrated Jack's family. I began this novel during the 2009 NaNoWriMo. And, I won.

a7d8cfd4 RedFlame DeepWater is a collection of spiritual poems about the agony and ecstasy of the spiritual journey. RedFlame describes the experience of the Dark Night of the Soul.  I will continue the collection in 2010 with DeepWater, illuminating ecstatic spiritual experiences.
