"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


It Runs In The Family - My Daughter The Writer

Not sure if I've mentioned it here or not, but my beautiful seven-year-old daughter Annika is not just beautiful: she's smart and creative too. And she may have gotten a bit of my "writing gene."

She has written two stories in the past several months (very cute ones, of course). And today, one of them is featured at my dear friend Vonnie Blake's kids' writing blog, Polliwog Pages: Kids Write.

Would love to have you stop by and leave her a comment. We ALL love that feedback, don't we?

Thanks! And have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. How sweet! I left her a comment!

  2. Ahh, how sweet. I'll jump over there.

  3. She's got great potentiality! (love her rules of punctuation...smile)

    Thanks for spreading the word, JO!

  4. That is adorable, only seven and writing already:)

  5. Love. It. She really DOES take after her mom, not just beautiful, but smart and creative, too!

    Hope you and yours had a fabulous Resurrection Day.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
