When I was in my early twenties, I dreamed of being a writer. This was before I dreamed of being a songwriter. My spelling and grammar had been so bad as a kid it became a sort of family joke. Now, here I am, 58-years old, and I'm leading writing workshops, meeting with writers regularly, and I've written the first of what I hope will be several books.
The Present Giver, is available for Nook or Kindle.

The Lone Write'r's Writing Club workbook is arranged so that the reader writes to a prompt, then reads what others have written in response to that same prompt. It's fun and interactive. Great for groups who need a lift, but designed for writers who are working alone and find themselves wishing they had a group to kick ideas around with.
In late 2015, Holly Tripp at Timbre Press, published the first volume of Stories of Music, an anthology of stories about how music has inspired or changed a person's life. My story "Grace" was included in the first book; "Heaven" was chosen for Volume 2, published in January 2017. Both stories describe the stories that inspired the songs. You can see an on-line version of the book, including audio and video clips, by clicking on the image below.
Check it out, and bravo to Holly for 2 jobs beautifully done.
