These are three of the four raffle baskets I’ve prepared for the upcoming readers’ conference I’m attending! In the first, these are all my young adult books, and the mohair bear is one of my creations. In the second one, these are all Highland romance books, and one lovely Irish western romance...

August 17     Go where it’s warm     The intangible rightness of cohesion is difficult to explain.  What is it that makes a group congregating into a congregation?  What makes a rag tag tousle into a home group?  It is the thing I yearn for, but dare not chase....

August 1   Porcellano     Some days I feel like a porcelain doll; hard head, hard hands, hard feet and everywhere else is soft, gormless.  I feel useless and act out my feelings, stumbling through a day of pointless inactivity.  I know that I belong on a shelf or propped...

  June 5   DOLL   “Why is your face all red?” asked my sponsor. “I didn’t get my way,” I responded. “And this crimson appearance is the result?” “You see that it is.  I was very careful about what I wanted and worked hard to be reasonable.” “And Baby, you were.  You did...

May 15       Madame Alexander         I am, too naïve; if you show me kindness I will believe you, follow you, obey you, so, I have rules.  These rules do not protect me, but they do make a box for me to seal myself inside.  Where I will ship myself, stack myself...
