Ocilla Art

Ocilla Art

New and fresh off the pad! I just finished my drawing of Ocilla, the heroine of Diane’s book. I started it a while back, toying with the idea of entering it in that joint venture between her and Keven. However, it took longer than expected (yep, the texturing took a while). I really enjoyed this […]

What A Great Time To Write

What A Great Time To Write

The title of this post is, to me, overused. Maybe not the exact wording but…well, let me explain briefly. What I mean is, in the eras of Hemingway, Poe, Tolkien and Lewis or in King’s heyday and yes, Rowling, it was a great time to write. Right? For them, it was perhaps the greatest. Akin […]

This Is Who I Am!

Year One at NAF

With this little post our blog began.   JANUARY 15, 2010 This is our official birthday, even though you’ll find a few posts dated prior to this.  That’s because when we started, several of us moved and back-dated posts from other locations.

For the past semester, I’ve been engaged in some of the most mentally challenging classes I’ve ever had.  Here’s the rub, though… I took them at the same time.  […]

Eric Wilson – defeated? The ramifications and what we should do.

Last Friday author Eric Wilson created a flurry of responses on his Facebook Wall and spawned at least two blog entries about it that I am aware of (not including this one) because of a blog entry he put on his site. According to Mike Duran, in an entry he put here, he confirmed what […]

Six Month Anniversary of NAF

Has it been six months already? The New Authors’ Fellowship launched on January 15, 2010.  Within just a couple weeks all the featured authors that you have come to enjoy had come on board.  What a wonderful six months it has been! From the very beginning, we wanted to be a group of unpublished authors […]



I have really been thinking about this word. It is something I strive for each day and often fall short of. Why then must I continue to aim for this word to be one that describes who I am if it is impossible to master? The answer is quite simple and quite complex. The best […]
