       I was born with a fascination for England. My dreams were not the typical little girl fantasies of Disney-influenced princesses and fairy tales of castles with princes charging up on horseback. Instead, I was enthralled with the history of the British Isles, the architecture, the land...

  Fame is like eating gelato in Italy during the summer. Everyone tells you that if you go, you have to try the gelato. So you think about that. Even if it’s early morning, you tell yourself, it’s hot already, there’s no line, you’re in Italy and it may be your only chance, so try the gelato...

      I was born smack dab in the middle of Summer. While it seems logical that this should be my favorite season, it is not. Perhaps time has jaded me?

Face it. Sex and writing have more in common than you have ever realized. Just think about it in terms of where each begins - both in writing and in sex. Sure, there’s beginner’s luck and natural talent, but for most of us, it is about effort, either via the trial-and-error method or through...

  I have no recollection of my birthday the year I turned three, but compared to my memories of the weeks that followed, it was  either unmemorable, or it fell as a casualty in the preparation process for Dam Days. I will never know.  However, I do know that two years earlier, on my first...

We are water. We are sustained by water. It has no caloric value, yet it is more important to us that food. It cleanses us; envelops us in its liquid hug.
