We had a really lovely time at my book club; Sherri’s On Linew banner for my book (2)ne Book Club. We had a lively chat and talked about my book in a wonderful and constructive way. I think the most interesting part was chatting about the time periods they traveled to. We really focused on the Civil War and what I had to say about the cruelty of slavery. And how difficult the choices were for Anne in that period not to interfere with the time. Two of  the lucky people won a prize!

Great Events and Interviews!

new banner for my book (2)pic in the darkme at the sdba (2)

I attended the San Diego Book Awards 2013 on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun.  There were many writers from all kinds of fields. I had a lot of fun at my table talking to other writers from the area and their families. My new banner looked really beautiful as you can see. The picture to the left happened during a period when the lights went out. I was surprised that the lights went out and the flash made me burst into giggles as the picture was taken. That is why I look I am about to burst out into laughter.  There was a great diversity in  the winners. And I loved my red velvet cupcake 🙂

1000058_591944980846098_2009528436_nMy brother and I went to the San Diego County Fair. We had a great time. There was so much to see and I think we walked every mile of the Del Mar Race Track to check it out.  I have the aching legs to prove it.  We went to all the craft shows, checked out all the art displays and ate a lot of fattening food. At the end of the day I did something I always wanted to do but was a little afraid.  I put it all in my blog called; I Rode An Elephant at the San Diego County Fair http://wp.me/p2MXM9-C via @wordpressdotcom

My special guest on my blog this week is author Brian Francis Heffron, He has a written a new book called; Colorado Mandala. Welcome Brian!

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?
My Mom ordered the Dr. Suess books in a series when I was in first grade and I remember waiting at the door for the post man to bring each new book. Go, Dog, Go! was I think the first one I read all by myself and I loved it then, and I love it now. The repetition and silliness were wonderful and the dogs all running around made me very happy!
What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?Brian(2)
I read Literary Fiction and classic books from the past mostly. Also, as a poet, I also read a tremendous amount of poetry. My favorite authors are Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kurt Vonnegut, and Mark Twain.
Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?

I do remember that when I got my first copy of Winnie the Pooh, that was the moment I decided I wanted to be a writer. In fact, I cut out paper the same size as A.E. Milne’s Book and copied, word-for-word every syllable of Winnie the Pooh onto my own paper in my childish scrawl. Then I stapled it all together and I remember that eventually the stapler would not go through all the pages, and so I had to staple it to the last few pages and it kust turned into quite a mess…But still…I took it to my sweet Mother and told her I was now ready to publish my first book. Darling soft creature that she was, she let me down easy, explaining very slowly that in order to publish my own book, I had to write every word in it all by myself. This did not phase me at all, in fact, and I immediately began writing down my own stories.—And the truth is I have never stopped


I think that would have to be On The Road by Jack Kerouac. It hit me like a semi-truck and I was never the same. It was like a guide to growing up without the fetters of societal norms oppressing you and keeping you “Normal”. It was written in such a way that you actually went on the journey with Neal and the other characters. I soon hit the road myself and hitchhiked all over America, inspired by that book to meet new people, learn new things, and see new parts of the country.
 Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?
I seem to respond to the 1800s. I love and collect art and the art of that period is the art that most inspires me. Painters like JMW Turner and Thomas Moran were geniuses at representational art. Modern Art leaves me cold as I find it inaccessible and therefore not art.
 Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?
I have built an office with two sets of French Doors along its back wall which, when all four doors are open, makes it seem like I am actually writing outdoors. The movement of the air and the sound of the birds soothes me and help me to focus and concentrate. I love my office and my home. They are a strong comfort zone for me.
Do you prefer one genre to another?
I prefer Literary Fiction, but am currently exploring the myriad new genres that have emerged in the last decade. There are so many new approaches to storytelling!
 Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?
I love books and collect antique books of art, but I also can see the future and how the digital revolution is so inevitable. Brian’s rule is that: “If something can be delivered to the customer digitally, then eventually it will only be delivered to the customer digitally.”
 Can you tell us about what your working on now?
My new book is an irish family history set against the turmoil of the Irish Revolutionary period from 1900 to 1980. My ancestors were integral to the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916 and were part of the early revolutionary forces that fought Britain to a standstill and finally sent them home.final cover proof 2 (2)
