Guest Post by Heather L.L. FitzGerald I have a confession to make. I’m a fantasy writer who did not grow up reading the stuff. In fact, as a child raised in a Christian home, I was taught to shun anything to do with magic. This was in the 80s, when we were also taught that […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.
Guest Post by Christina Coryell One of my favorite parts of writing Finding Love in Cannon Beach was giving Kadence and Foster a passion for the piano. Many of the characters I’ve written have loved music, but these two were my first characters who were wild about keys. This was a special topic for me, […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
Lockets have a certain mystique. They hold memories and sometimes secrets. Wearing the picture of your beloved close to your heart is the epitome of romance, one of the reasons lockets have been around since at least the 16th century.

By Miralee Ferrell Pretty, isn’t it? I see Mount Hood (from a different perspective) every time I drive home, and I love it. But I’m not crazy about the mountains that keep rearing up in my path as I journey through life. We’ve had more than our share of those the past few years, and most of […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.

That popular story, it turns out, is more fiction than fact, which causes me to wonder—who was the real George Washington? Since we recently […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
By Deborah Dulworth I lost my dear husband of forty-four years on Christmas day 2016 to pancreatic cancer. He was my closest friend, my problem solver, and, of course, my sweetheart. Ray and I enjoyed many things together. On the top of the list was attending gospel sings where our daughter, Christy performed with her […]Continue Reading... 12 Comments.
By Linda Hanna Join her FB group HERE People always ask when I first became interested in writing. That’s an easy question for me to answer. It was just after Easter in 1957 when I was four-years-old. Mom worked in a hospital and my preacher dad became my evening caregiver. This meant long hours of […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
By Angela Ruth Strong One year ago I attended the Sundance Film Festival to research for Finding Love in Park City, Utah. I like to use real life settings, but this was the first time I actually got to travel to the location before writing the book. In fact, my novel Finding Love in Sun […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
By Anna Zogg Most people know what science fiction (sci-fi) is. We think of Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Poul Anderson—as well as a host of current sci-fi writers with their sometimes dry and detailed explanations. But what is science fantasy? Is it science fiction, or is it fantasy? The first time I read the phrase, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
