Welcome! This blog is all about writing: The novels I’m working on, the research that compels and inspires me, the nitty gritty of grammar, linguistics, syntax and all those little nuts & bolts of writing the English language (I also try to credit any image I use wherever possible; if you come across an image and know the source though it’s missing from my site, please let me know so that proper credit can be given.). I’d love to hook up with other writers, especially those who struggle with the ways of writing; as an English teacher for adults, I’m not only aware of the pitfalls of the language, but of the tendency for the nuts & bolts to get rusty, come loose, or get lost altogether.
I have a wide variety of interests, and maintain a few other blogs, so if you’re interested, please check out the “personal links” to the right: History Undusted is just that – anything to do with history, especially the obscure bits; Candle & Quill is my site for spiritual musings, devotionals, and the like; CuppaNatter is my recipe site – I don’t attempt to compete with professional sites, but all of these recipes are “tried and true” in my home and are often recipes that guests request (so I just put them up there and give them the link – and I know where to find them in future!).
In the real world I don’t have time for a job outside of the home! I’m a writer, author, editor, translator (German to English), vocal coach for bands, singing teacher, English teacher for adults, household manager, and all-rounder!
