The Bracelet Gems

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but the trinkets worn on our wrists, whether precious or semi precious, gold or silver, sea glass or rocks, leather or lace, or Pandora charms, equally excite this girl.

A Valentine Love Story

Hope – A Candle in our Journey

After the sunset on a warm winter evening, I took our Yorkshire-Terrier-cross named Bella, for an evening walk in the neighbourhood. Bella loves to walk and is not concerned with the lack of light or even the weather. She enjoys a good walk! As we walked, I stopped to Instagram tiny twinkle lights on aContinue reading “Hope – A Candle in our Journey”

Words inspired by a Genre Circular

Words inspired by a Genre Circular A writer’s mind is a provocative vortex into a complex world. I can’t explain the creative seeds that grow within the stories I write, or the character threads that come to me in almost insightful flashes. However, I’d like to believe there is a link between a healthy imagination andContinue reading “Words inspired by a Genre Circular”
