Skip was standing at the counter, enjoying dipping his doughnuts in his hot coffee. I could see he was in another world... the world of tasting something so good!
Skip loves doughnuts. Not only loves doughnuts, he can make them. Skip can bake, cook with the best of them. These doughnuts passed the test... they were 'perfect'. Skip loves to tell me about how doughnuts are supposed to be made... don't overproof them, don't over-cook... under-cook them.

Her face was partially held by some unknown grief…Continue

Destiny Denied is at the printer now awaiting the cover art.
The manuscript received a 5-star review from Readers Favorite. It is too long to post, but here is just one paragraph of the review:
"Destiny Denied" is an intriguing story of a family's deep secrets coming to light and leaving them with choices that they'd rather not make. That the late local parish priest Father Lahdra kept a journal telling of those secrets is a good writing ploy and makes "Destiny…

I put frozen pieces of banana into the blender, along with crushed ice, a little cream. I blended until the texture was thick, smooth.... it became banana ice cream! I learned to do this from looking at recipe sites on my computer. Oh, it's heavenly!
I spooned all into a cup, found my favorite spoon ( it is a long, slender teaspoon :))). I took all outside on the porch to…Continue

When a person is diagnosed with having a brain tumour, it is a natural assumption to fear the worst, thinking that life is virtually over. I was only eight years old when my tumour was discovered, and I was not particularly aware of its seriousness. But it was my parents and family who suffered the most, hurling their lives into turmoil.
Back in the 1970s technology was not as…Continue

Yesterday evening we stopped at a service station, got out of the pickup to go inside. Screaming... happy screaming filled the air behind us! We turned to look, saw a huge ferris wheel going 'round and 'round. The happy screams were coming from there! Skip and I turned to look at each other... for a moment we were children again. The fair! The fair's come to town! We were looking at a county fair....
We stood there to watch the different rides in motion. Happy colors…Continue

“Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.”
Been there, done that. And let me tell you, there is no easy way to smoothly extricate yourself and still look cool.
Admitting you're wrong is difficult. Admitting someone is right can be, too.
This is especially true when it come to critiques about your writing.

I'm Sal Corrente, author of, The Adventures of Boochi Malloochi series (Vol 1-12).
The main character, Boochi, who is based loosely on my first daughter, (my wife and I have four all together), was developed with a strong sense of wit, morals, repect for others, genuine courtesy and well portioned sarcasm. The delicate balance of her personality is a combination of her real life parents. I believed when creating this series, that is was essential to provide a…Continue

If someone were to ask me why I write, I would have to reply, “Why not?” It is part of who I am. As a child, my love of a good story often got me into trouble at school. I would hide my library book, usually a mystery, behind the pages of a bulky school text. That is probably the reason my grades suffered in other areas, especially math.
At night, my mother would often find me hiding under the bed sheets reading. This was after she had told me more than once to turn out the lights…Continue

Hi. My name is Richard Neal, and I'm the author of Kingdom of the Antichrist/Rise of the Beast. This is my first book - it took me ten years to research and write, and another three years to get published. So I'm a bit nervous being on a website like this with all you talented authors...

In November of last year (on another blog site), I posted a series of humorous statements entitled Adult Truths. Many people enjoyed them and one person, my editor and friend, Sunny, suggested I think about writing a blog about each individual truth.
Well, I kept the idea in mind, wondering how I might turn these bits into blogs about writing. Now that my…Continue
