Book Projects

Talent will be released into the world on November 1. The idea for this book originally came to me in 1979 when I was chaining the door to the gym of our high school after our final production of Oklahoma! A bunch of band kids were standing there, and the one I knew slipped the can of beer he was holding behind his back. He couldn’t hide the terror in his eyes though. High school kids drank in 1979 and I had never been told what to do about it, so I did nothing, The look in his eyes haunted me, and it became the initial impulse for this story. That impulse changed and expanded many times.

I’m currently working on a memoir about getting married for the first time at 62 to a two-time widower that I met on … gulp … Craigslist. It’s tentatively titled Never Too Late.

I’ve always been a fan of journaling. Although I wrote You Want Me to Do WHAT?  for caregivers, I quickly discovered that journaling has value for everyone, whether you’re writing about yourself or writing from your protagonist’s point of view or writing like your antagonist. There are over 200 sentence starts in the book. Pick one, finish it, and keep going. HINT: If you search for it on Amazon, use the title and the subtitle or go to http://www.amazon.com/You-Want-Me-Do-What/dp/1606962973
