• Sunday Snippet: The Settling Back In Edition

    It’s me again! Time for just a plain old Sunday Snippet since I’m back home from Hawaii and settling into normal Editor and Author Nan life. Laundry, a new editing gig, laundry, walking the ‘hood with neighbor Mary, reviewing copy edits on book 2 in the Weaver Sisters series,¬† writing…oh, and did I mention laundry? I have a serious case of jet lag–feeling like I could sleep for a week, but I’m trying to get my circadian rhythms back to what they should be. Weird that I’m suffering jet lag from traveling across three time zones the same week that we here in the Midwest spring forward. My body has…

  • Sunday Snippet: The, Yup, It’s a Real Snippet Edition

    It’s true. Sometimes the Sunday Snippet is exactly that–a snippet from one of my stories.

So you will continue to get tastes of my books, but you’re also going to get a lot of Nan because…well, because this is my blog and I get to choose what happens here. (I’m not really as bratty as that sounds, truly.) All that said, guess what! You get a snippet today!…

  • Sunday Snippet

    I’m finally breathing… with about five thousand words or less left to write on my current WIP, I can see the end and it’s full of light! The other day I was telling Husband that as I’ve gotten closer to The End on this book, I think I’ve discovered that pandemic writing is much harder than I ever realized. So much of what I, as a writer, depend on to prime the creative well has been unavailable to me through all of the writing of this first book in the Langes of River’s Edge series. People-watching and eavesdropping in restaurants and airports, writing trips, get-togethers with friends and family, wandering…
