Happy Holidays

I wanted to take the time out in between chapters to wish all of you the happiest of holidays.

Your support of this story this past year has meant so much to me and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you for reading.

Been through a lot this past year with my father getting sick while the whole time just getting used to the fact that I even had a dad.

Writing these stories and been my escape and I appreciate you helping me along the journey with your humor, questions and comments.

More to come with Stay, writing a sequel and another Jovi Fan Fiction to boot.

So keep the comments and questions coming.

But most all Happy Holidays Peeps!

Also, movie for the week....

The Dark Knight!!! Christian Bale/the Late Heath Ledger, great movie.

That is all!!!

Ch 32 is up for Stay

AFL Susends 2009 Season

I feel awful for the employees, players, and all of us fans.

These times are hard on everyone, and I for one truly enjoyed going and watching the AFL.

Hopefully with a new re-structured league, a new and improved AFL will emerge in 2010.

Here's the article

Ch. 31 is up for Stay

Song Bits

Okay, I know i'm supposed to be updating Stay and I will.

but I wanted to share a couple of links for you.

The first site is by my great friend Becky.

Becky's Blog Books

She's a great writer and has previously written stories such as Save a Prayer and her current one Lie to Me.

Becky also has a great part to her site called Song Bits where she, myself and a few other authors have written short stories set to Bon Jovi songs.

I encourage you to take a look.

One other quick link is the Goddess Hathor's Quick Pic Fic Link site:

Quick Pic Fic

Enjoy all the teasing and reading!!!

Off to write and post....

Bon Jovi/Music Business 101.

Interesting read:

Most of it I knew, but enjoy the article.

Dear God-What a nightmare!!

It all began early Friday morning.

After falling asleep at 11:00 pm on Thursday, between 1-2 am on Friday the snap crackle and pop of the of the trees was amazing to hear.

Fifteen minutes later, the power went out and it stayed out.

Until 11:30 Sunday morning.

Mother nature can be devastating yet beautiful. The ice on the trees is so pretty yet its weight snapped trees like matchsticks and wrapped power lines in a coil.

Thank god we installed a gas fireplace so we were warm...and for my readers...I was able to during the day, to write...Some new chapters of Stay will be coming shortly.

A question for ya..

Okay everyone need your advice.

Lately in my email box there have been invitations to entering screenwriting contests.

I'm too late for the American Zoetrope one. Here's the link for not only screenwriters, but also for any short story writers, future authors to get their stories critiqued by other fellow and future thespians.


It's a great website the Francis Ford Coppola started a few years ago. Some of these people helped me out so much when I first started writing little short scripts and even my longer ones. Talented bunch.

The early entry for next year's begins in May. Should I? Shouldn't I.

But there's this one. (Granted my odds suck) But I think I'll try it, it'll be a lot of fun. It's called True North and the winning script gets their 60 sec short filmed by....
Actress HELEN HUNT!!! (woot!) It'll also be shown during the Oscar's telecast.

I'll have to literally set aside time which should be okay to do, but I think it's time to dust off the FINAL DRAFT software and give it a go.

Here's the link for anyone who's interesting in learning about writing their True North Story!!


Talk to you all soon!!

Giving Thanks and some movies to watch.

Okay, It's been over a week...Ahem....probably a little longer since i've updated this.

I hope everyone had a healthy and safe holiday.

I wanted to take the time and thank all of you for reading my stories supporting me.

This has been so far not only a great learning experience, but the friendships I've made have been second to none. MUAH.

Okay, you all know me pretty well by now. Enough the the mushy stuff.

Besides being in a turkey coma, for several days, I've not only been writing, (Bay, you and Susan will be happy to know that BTW. LOL), but I've been also catching up with some great movies.

Instead of posting a long blog about the Rocky Collection which I'll do eventually.

I decided after talking to a friend to discuss a movie that not only provokes thought, but also left me saddened and disturbed.

The movie is called The Dead Girl. And it stars Brittany Murphy, in what is only my opinion, the best role she's ever done.


She is Krista and her life is weaved into 5 compelling stories. With each story, she transforms the people around her with either a positive result or with such a horrific result that you can't help but to watch, be angry and see how the rest of the story unfolds.

The other cast members are Marcia Gay Harden, Kerry Washington, Toni Collette, and a performance by Mary Beth Hurt that I am blown away by.

I watched this movie on Sunday...and today....it's still with me. When you write and direct something like this great piece and hope it moves either a viewer or if your an author a reader, you've done your job.

Thanks Karen Moncrieff for not only telling a great story but showing us that nothing is always fairy tales and happy endings....Sometimes just seeing life is what it's all about.

Later peeps
