Tales of an Introvert Living in an Extravert’s World

I am an introvert. That doesn’t mean that I’m shy, exactly. It’s more that I require lots of time on my own, getting lost in the world of my imagination. That’s part of what I love so much about traveling solo—it’s a perfect excuse to interact when and how I wish and then retract, replenishing myContinue reading “Tales of an Introvert Living in an Extravert’s World”

Rock Like a Girl

Being a woman can be tough. It often feels like a bunch of conflicting ideals: be desirable, but not needy; be hot but approachable; be intelligent but not intimidating; be confident in everything you do, but with a hint of wounded bird fragility that suggests you really do need saving; be a martyr caretaker and an adventurous free-spirit.Continue reading “Rock Like a Girl”

Finding the Why: What I’ve Learned About Making Music Videos

Since we released MC Flow’s “Pot in the Latkes” people keep asking me for tips on shooting music videos.

Plan Everything, Expect Nothing

Ah, the wonderful unreliability of travel. I am the kind of person who makes lists, does research, plans things and is generally a fan or order. And yet I love to travel and create. These things are not always symbiotic. Maybe because I’m a Gemini or maybe because I’m a creative gypsy I carry bothContinue reading “Plan Everything, Expect Nothing”

Today IContinue reading “IT’S MY BOOK BIRTHDAY!”

Waiting For Your Big Break? Look No Further.

Everyone has heard of the elusive Big Break—that moment when an ordinary individual is handed the opportunity of a lifetime, launching them to celebrity status.

ROCK MY WORLD Gets a Soundtrack

Here’s an example of why it’s so handy to have a musician husband: he can write a song about my book from one of my main characters to the other.  That’s what I call a great anniversary present!

A Novel Music Tour: Week Two Now into our second week on the road, we’re old pros.
