Heart of the West Conference

There is a wonderful conference in Park City, Utah for authors, writers, aspiring writers and readers. It is the 2010 Heart of the West Conference being held on October 8 and 9, 2010. There will be great speakers and informative workshops, and a book signing is scheduled.

It is being held at the Grand Summit at The Canyons, Park City, Utah, by the Utah Romance Writers of America.

School's starting again, so the hectic pace for parents is well underway. Here are a few of tips to make it through the harder days:

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is to be kind to others.

I hope you had a great August and have a wonderful September.

July, 2010

Summer came in with a bang, but I love the hot weather and all the showy flowers it brings. Some of my writing time is outside with my laptop. I can generally be found on an old swing, next to the pond, where I write and enjoy the weather too.

My romances are generally about strong women who find themselves in untenable positions where there seems to be no way out. However, I love writing about those women who take a chance on themselves and try to find a way to resolve the issue, even if it seems like a lost cause.

After all, to paraphrase the famous U.S. attorney, Clarence Darrow: "Lost causes are the only causes worth fighting for."

Have a great summer!
