Good morning from the West Coast, Berkeley, California. Thank you for stopping by and chatting. I am always interested in reading what people of the pages have to say about what they're reading, what interests them, and what does and doesn't work in a book. That interest has taken a personal slant since I became a published author.
To start things off - a bit of personal background: I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, and am the middle child in a large family. I used to play church with my one doll and stuffed animals as a child and now I am ordained clergy in the Episcopal Church, serving as the parish deacon at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Berkeley, two blocks from my home. My children are grown, all tall, dark and beautiful like their father - not one diminutive, large-eyed, Scandinavian in the trio! To support my maniacal lifestyle I work as a legal secretary in San Francisco. When do I find the time to write, you may well ask? Well, I do.
And now, shall we chat?
All the best,
I did review it Tallis Third Tune :) briefly!
:) I like that! I plan to start reading in a bit.. just finished my last errand..
How many of us have almost blown it because we followed a path that our families thought was the best course in life? That's a question I pondered over in my youth and it's the question that keeps nagging at Quinn Radcliffe, well, that and other problems....
It took me zinging back to Tallis!
I loved your review of Tallis, by the way. Thank you!
Not a question about a particular book, but what inspired you to become an author?
I had an older sister who took me to our library and would read to me from the Lang Fairy Tale books. She wrote stories, too, and it inspired me. When I told her a story I'd made up, she wrote it down and told my mother I should be a writer. She gave up on it and went on to other interests, but it's been a part of my DNA and keeps me going. Unfortunately, that sister didn't live to see that her efforts showed promise. I dedicated my second novel to her, Armor of Light. She died at the age of 38.
Other than a church, a library is where I feel most at home and welcome.
I have just started reading Tallis' Third Tune, but have not got very far at all yet
