A book I read

As a writer, in my downtime, when I’m not writing, I read. Go figure.

A day or so ago, I happened to get into a really good book, a historical romance. Yes, I like those, among other genres. I’m not ashamed to say.  Anyway, as I was listening to the book– I forgot to mention it was an audio book, the author got me. I mean she had me, lock, stock and barrel, in the story with the characters.

I was holding my breath at points and wondering what on earth will happen now? At another juncture, tears came to my eyes, and I felt what one of the main characters in the story was feeling. Wow. Now that was a good book!

That–the experience, the laughter, and the tears are what I strive to give you, my readers. I want to give you emotion. I want you to hang at points, suspended, just wondering…where to next?

Then if I am doing the good job that I sometimes think I am, please let me know, and be kind, because I’ll tell you. Other times, while writing, I feel plain frustrated, until my thing starts coming together. It’s the nature of the beast, but I love it! I love that I get to do one of the things that I most love. And I get to share it with you, the reader! I ask you, what on earth could be better than that?

Gotta get back to writing, but I just thought I’d share. See you soon.

Check me out at Amazon.com



  1. You can’t just leave us hanging. What was the book?

    • It was The Lost Duke of Wyndham, by Julia Quinn. If you like audio books, I suggest it! Let me know what you think if you happen to read or listen to it. Happy Reading!
