Interview and Outer View

I just love it when I’m asked to talk. It happens so seldom. But Mike Murphy of Emerging Novelists did just that, and posted the interview.

It’s starting to think about being Spring in these parts. We had a couple of mild days, just to tease us, and I got out and snapped a couple of pictures.

The snowdrops are in full bloom since I got this picture. Mother Nature does this to break our hearts when she subsequently buries these little beauties under umpty-ump inches of ice and snow and freezing rain.

And here is a stump my husband is killing slowly, in conjunction with jolly old Mother N. He heaps what folks around here call fossil rocks on top of them, and Ma Nature sends rain and moss and bugs and what-have-you to nibble away at their flesh. The Melbourne Method. ~shudders~ Not the Melbourne Method!

Oh, you precious Internet! If I were still single, I would marry you, I love you so much! While I was searching for the name of that slow method of dealing with enemies, I came across The Peter Lorre Collection of Sound. OMG!! What a treasure!!!

Well, that made my day.

WRITING PROMPT: Whose voice, other than people you actually know in person, do you love to hear? Why do you love to hear it?



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.

    These pictures are beautiful and yes it breaks my heart when such gifts of nature are ruined by nature itself.. But That’s how life goes! They go and come back again next season!
