This Author’s Feet Were Made for Walking and Talking!

Have you ever thought about where you have been? And how you got there? And what your mode of travel was?
As I write this, I’m in beautiful Hawaii. Loving the sun; the gentle breeze that flows across the patio in the afternoon; being with four other girlfriends at our annual giggle and gather; and, of course, sipping my favorite peach ice tea. I’m working on three different manuscripts this week—sending one back to my client …

Continue celebrating my birthday week.  I love the words in my book, Snappy Sassy Salty — sometimes fun!

Hello … I’m back–wowsa, what a fun day yesterday was … my usual coaching with authors in the morning (what a hoot—a chorus of voices from multiple states singing Happy Birthday – kind of together); writing the next day’s blogs for AuthorU and The Book Shepherd; participating in my guest radio spots for shows on the East Coast I do each Monday, and then the day started to morph. A girlfriend picked me up for …

I’ve heard her say this for years—in fact, truth be told—I did this exercise before; putting together 10 facts … and my computer ate it. I’m not sure what was on the list … I know that my #1 below was. I could easily put together another …

Why Authors Should Drink Water at Night

Why Authors Should Drink Water at Night

Tis the season to be merry … meaning lots of food and drinking. And sometimes health hiccups. My friend of many years and author-to-be, Herb Jacobs MD, forwarded this to me. I felt it was a “sobering” reminder for all of us … and why we should have a drink of water before going to bed each night.

Living in Colorado, naturally I did the “in person” class in the Denver area. Several ahas popped including the value of keeping it small. …

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know about Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd

Okay, it’s truth and tell time. 
I get questions all the time about my upbringing (it wasn’t like Leave It to Beaver and June Cleaver wasn’t my birth mother). People are curious as to what brings someone to do what they do and who they are. Here’s mine:
