Sadie Watson

My boys are back in school and once again the focus of my
life shifts to the car line. My kids
are always excited to go back to school, to see their friends, and pick up
their social life where they left it at the end of May. I, too, am excited to see the kids back in
school. Mainly because I like to be on a
routine. So in the afternoon, I sit
and wait in a car line that snakes through the school parking lot. Those 15 minutes of waiting are
peaceful. The quiet solitude of my
mini-van calls to me. And I find I can
read another chapter or two in the book I am currently devouring. I become engrossed, traveling through time
and seeing a romance …

AvatarLadyDianaHeadshotPublic displays of affection are not the norm for London. Yet, on two occasions, July 29, 1981 and September 6, 1997, thousands of people thronged the streets, and billions watched on telly, as the person they adored swept by, the first time for her wedding and the second time for her funeral.

LadyDianaMotherFriday is the tenth death anniversary of Diana, the People’s Princess. She won the hearts of millions of people and loosened the moral strictures of hidebound society by not just talking the talk, but also walking the walk. LadyDianaRedCrossFrom a shy bride to a devoted mother to a passionate campaigner, the Princess of Wales didn’t just transform herself, she changed a country. She was one of the first symbols of "girl power" — despite her desire for something …

AvatarVirginiaWoolfIn the essay A Room of One’s Own (1929), Virginia Woolf writes, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is going to write." I extend Woolf’s concept to: A person must have a space of her own if she is going to live as an individual.

This space that you stake ownership upon need not be a large room. In fact, it could be a hidey hole in the attic of your home or a specific couch in the family room. This space is where you can withdraw to be completely yourself. The guarantee is that it is inviolate and your privacy and access to it is respected by everyone. By definition, this is not a shared space. No one has the right to …

Alpahbet If you are anything like me, you probably keep a list of every book you have ever read.  I began my list back in 2004, and boy do I wish I had started sooner.  I just have to have my list when I go to the used bookstore so that I don’t buy the same book again.  And believe me, I have done that a few times!

So this morning I was looking through my Excel spreadsheet of books and authors and thought, wouldn’t it be great to read through the alpahbet using the last name of authors.  Maybe I better clarify that… see my list is by author and then by book.  So for the letter "A" I have read Victoria Alexander, for the letter "B" I have read …

I love the smell of books.  I like to flip the pages, close my eyes and take a big sniff.  To me, there’s something rather soothing about it.  I tell my husband that someone could make a ton of money off of me if they could put that scent on a scratch-n-sniff sticker…or on one of those little things you hang in your car.  He just rolls his eyes and says I’m weird, but I love him anyway.

I also love the smell of a bookstore.  The cool rush of air and scents that hit you right when you walk in the door.  The smell of those books begging to be bought mingled with the scent of fresh coffee. Mmmmm… it’s one of my favorite smells.  And I …

AvatarIn his recent memoir, celebrated actor Sidney Poitier wrote, "The true measure of a man is how well he provides for his children." Similarly, as a reader and a writer, the true measure of a fiction story to me is how well it provides for its characters and its readers.Bookmeasurebooks

Not historical accuracy, not plot, not craft, nor language. A story’s characters should always form the first impression, be the focus, and create a lasting impression. Whether this is the dimpling sweetling in a Regency-set historical, a kick-ass brainiac of the twentieth century, the loathsome evil-doer, or the downtrodden and huddled masses, the story needs to deliver these characters in full technicolor glory, accolades and shortcomings, the salubrious, and the salacious.

Every detail, no matter how insignificant should inform the …
