“La Befana: An Italian Night After Christmas”

Well, I had a nice holiday treat today — I got acquainted with the children’s stories of my old friend and Mary Washington College alum, Sunday Frey-Blanchard. Sunday was kind enough to share her work with me, and I was charmed by her natural talent as an engaging storyteller.

Sunday actually published her first children’s book in 2007, entitled “La Befana: An Italian Night After Christmas.” I peeked inside using Amazon’s “Look Inside” option, and the illustrations, by Sunday’s father, are adorable. If you’re looking for a new tale to share with your little ones this holiday season, give it a look:


“Iridescent Green Sharks” attracts readers at

I was pleased to see today that my self-published romance story, “Iridescent Green Sharks,” attracted 125 reads over at Wattpad.

It certainly isn’t the best story I’ve ever written, but it was something I wanted to share, and I am pleased it found an audience.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, I’m especially grateful for all of the intelligent and creative people in my life who are stimulating muses and sources of inspiration — my friends who are novelists, story writers, poets, artists, editors, publishers, screenwriters, actors, choreographers, music lovers … and people who just plain enjoy a good poem or story.

I’m truly fortunate to find myself in the company of people who encourage me, challenge me, and, from time to time, show me the way.
