Coming Soon…Can I Sleep First?

Yup, I was down to the wire, but met my Camp NaNoWriMo goal again in July. 3630 more minutes on Book II of The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone. I’m working hard to get it out to you this Fall! …but now it’s Nighty-night time. Zzzzzz

L is for Livingstone

But of course looks aren’t everything and in books, they matter little at all. We all want to know her. Who is this young woman anyway? So here’s a passage from Book I – Journey Key, that introduces you well to the ‘witty’ Miss Livingstone on her first ‘unwitting’ journey:

How Amazing to be There!

Another tidbit from researching Miss Livingstone’s fictional life was an event I would have loved to have seen. An outdoor Houdini stunt in her home town. She would have been 21 in 1908, and living in Boston as an adventurous gal, I’m sure she would’ve gone to see Houdini jump from the Harvard Bridge into the Charles River to make his…

Rather Odd

  I had so much fun at this event in June, that I’ve joined another Indie Authors booth at OddMall Holiday Event this weekend. I’m a lover of art as well as literature, and if you are too, then don’t miss this exhibition and sale of unique and excellent wares. It’s at Everett Community College…

In the Same Week-Way Back Wednesday

In the same week that Book I: Journey Key happens, the Boston Marathon was won by a Nova Scotian. Miss Livingstone was from Boston and had settled in the west, in the small but valued Washington town of Snoqualmie. It’s remarkable how the two coasts contrasted in infrastructure. It would have been difficult for her. And…

San Francisco & Seattle Fires 1908 and 1889

For Way Back Wednesday this week, we take a look at the devastating fires of the early 20th century. The mostly wood structures in the American west were vulnerable to these horrific conflagrations. When writing fiction that’s seated in history, it’s key to search the big news of the time. It would defy credibility to…

My Favorite Moment

The moment when the first big batch of books arrives may be my favorite moment of being an author. It’s like opening that big package at Christmas and finding inside the thing you wished for with all your heart. At last I know the book is no longer only my own, but will be shared with…
