News and Muse


“Give me a word – give me a sign

Show me where to look – tell me what will I find?

Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky

Show me where to look – tell me what will I find?


Oh - Heaven, let your light shine down”


- Taylor, Steve; Furler, Peter. Song “Shine” by Collective Soul


I have news about one of my favorite writer friends:

Shannon O'Donnell

She’s a hard-working teacher who squeezes in writing time when she can. She’s queried. She’s received rejections. She’s received requests for partials and fulls. She’s been rejected again. Then she had an almost.

But now she an AGENT! YaY!

Go over and congratulate her HERE .


While you’re there, you can read my musings on submitting short stories for publication. Shannon is a stop on my Fangtales tour.


But Shannon is the actual STAR.

Shine on, Shannon.
