Friday Recommends – Cooking, Booking and Learning

So today I’m on the road, but here are some recommendations I’m dropping on you.

First, especially for my gluten-intolerant friends, The Cook and the Cardiologist. Joyce Schneider, the cook, and her husband, the cardiologist, have a content-packed site for healthy–and delicious, that’s very important–eating.

Joyce Schneider is, yes, THE Joyce Schneider, the author of “creepy, fun” books STRYKER’S CHILDREN and DARKNESS FALLS. I just ordered both of them and can’t wait to read them! I love Twitter, which is where I “met” Joyce. 🙂

Kadijah was born in the USA but now lives in Yemen, where she homeschools her children. At the moment, they’re “building” a permaculture village, which I find fascinating. Join her on her Yemini Journey. I am.

I just discovered Holly Lisle, whose books look right up my alley and whose How To Write courses look most interesting. Too late for me to take an 8-week plotting course in preparation for NaNoWriMo this year. Le sigh.

WRITING PROMPT: A character who has, with great difficulty, prepared for something discovers, on the eve of the thing prepared for, a shortcut or assistance.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hi. I almost didn’t go to the Holly Lisle website, because I thought I had already discovered her. I have read most of her vampire series and would recommend it. Anyway, her web site rocks! Thank you thank you.

      You’re welcome! I usually have recommendations on Friday, but that’s on hold during the April A-to-Z Challenge. 🙂
