Named the Kitten

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 Last week, quite unexpectedly, a kitten wandered into my novel in progress.  On a whim, I invited everyone to give me name suggestions for him. Those of you who know I’m a “cat person” are probably surprised that the kitten was a surprise to me… but I already had two other … More Named the Kitten

Name the Kitten

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 I wasn’t going to do a midweek post.  However, yesterday, I started playing with something on Facebook.  When several people came out to play along, I decided to continue the game here.  A strange little kitten (unexpected by me) poked his nose into my novel in progress.  On a whim, I … More Name the Kitten

Review by Teri Polen, Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine! #bookreview #steampunk — Books and Such

Wednesday Writing with the Senses — Hearing

Hearing, Sight, Smell, Taste, Touch Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Traditionally those are the five senses.  I suddenly decided to rerun this mini-series on The Senses.  I originally did this series five years ago, so maybe it’s fitting.

April 3, 2020 You know it’s unusual for me to do more than two posts in a week.  However, when I learned the amazing Mark Bierman had posted a review for A Ghost in the Kitchen – Three Ingredients II, I had to share.  I think Granny Phanny just did a back-flip.  I hope you’ll visit … More Review of A Ghost In The Kitchen, Three Ingredients – 2, by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene — Mark Bierman

Wednesday Writing — Characters & Social Isolation

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Happy hump day, everyone!  In keeping with the current, surreal version of “normal,” I wondered what my characters might think about social isolation.  I’ve had a lot of characters.  The one who “spoke” loudest about the topic is Birdie Devovo, heroine of Brother Love — a Crossroad. You see, Birdie experienced more … More Wednesday Writing — Characters & Social Isolation

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Laughter, they say, is the best medicine.  So, wouldn’t be even better when something makes you snort? I write all sorts of stories.  I’ve been told that I do some genre mash-ups.  However, there’s one thing you can count on with my stories — whimsy.  In the universe of Atonement, Tennessee, … More Laughter is good medicine — snorts are even better. #FreeBook
