What an extraordinary meeting the Northwest Writers Group turned out to be, and the instruction by renown author Joan Kop was truly inspirational. When a problem was discussed, there was immediate and genuine feedback on ways to get around it! The ‘exercise’ Joan had us do for the brave souls who submitted anonymous scripts of…Continue

I really missed being a part of the 'Mouse Pack" in Berkeley of the Sixties, as four of our members became established writers. When my Dad was murdered, I stopped writing poetry..it didn't seem 'enough' but I've been blessed with these latter years of my life to find a second chance is available after all....Working on a deadline of July First for my next religious novel "Fire of Thorns" but being accepted into your group so warmly means more than I can…Continue

Asleep in the Nightmare Room will be published by Blysster Press this year. We're going to do an eBook roll out for Crypticon in early May with a print edition to follow later. Asleep in the Nightmare Room features short stories; poetry; a long Stephen King essay; and collected for the first time, "The Show Begins at 10:31," a series of horror movie columns. I hope you are ready because these are not pleasant dreams.

Greetings, fellow writers and readers.
I am happy to announce that my debut novel CRY DOWN DARK is now available from Blysster Press.
Peter Toombs never stopped loving Diana Ward. Not after they broke up; not after she married someone else; not after she died. Peter never got over how he failed Diana when she needed him most when they were in college. Even as he became a successful TV writer, his failure haunted him more than the monsters he created to…Continue

Today I had planned a day of going to a horse event with my kids. Instead we set out to go look at possible horse for Lilly to replace our beloved Zip. Before we got there we decided that this was not the horse for her and we visited my new place of work instead; then went to McDonalds for lunch. It was a fun but not so successful day. On the way home we stopped at Hobby Lobby to buy beads for Elizabeth to make necklaces with. I really enjoyed this day with my kids.
When I got home…
Today I went to my second ever writing meeting at Auntie’s Book Store. I felt like I have always belonged to this group simply because of the connections and friendships I have made this last month. Tonight was amazing; there were so many new people with new ideas, projects, and connections to share. I truly enjoyed every minute of this meeting and look forward to many more.
I read the introduction to my new novel and was surprised at the reaction. The comments and critiques were…Continue
Congrats on your writing sale, Kathy! You go, girl!!!
OK I am seeking all opinions ~
In writing historical fiction is it ok to go with a myth of a story even if it doesn't match up with the historical facts? I am stuck in my research and just want to start the story. The problem is that this story I have heard does not line up with the facts I have heard.
I know that my several great grand mother was full blood cherokee. The story is that she was adopted off of the trail of tears. Problem: Dorcus Tabitha "Morning Star"…Continue
Well I went to my first INWG meeting here in Spokane. It was not all I thought it would be. They were trying something different but it was not my speed. I have never been fond of impromptu writing. Sometimes, however, impromptu writing can be inspirational. I have created some of my most powerful pieces from a prompt, but I am not so good with time limits. I would suggest one writing prompt per meeting with the whole meeting to work on the piece then share, but that would surely take…Continue
I have recently renewed an interest in doing freelance writing work. I have scoured the internet over the years looking for way to do this and have discovered several sights that connect writers with potential jobs. With my skills as a writer, illustrator, photographer, and creator of spectacular ads and flyers; I should have no problem finding assignments to sustain me. The only problem I have found is that there are so many sites that promise to connect writers with jobs but they are…Continue
I just wrote this for a writing prompt on wdc, anyone who want to give comments, or review would be welcome.
When Lilly was four years old she learned to ride a horse. She loved every minute that she was able to sit high in the saddle and feel the wind in her hair. She loved the smell of a horse and spent every minute she could in the barnyard with the horses.
When she was six she got her first Pony. He was a small little pony that was just her…Continue
