My Writing Journey
When I began writing, years and years ago, it was in the spirit of helping people survive and thrive through difficult times. The mother, nurse and counselor in me searched for ways to give wounded people answers—not so much to get rid of the problems, though that can happen, but to work through their struggles and come out stronger, more secure, and better able to cope with whatever life throws their way. If you are wounded and looking for hope and help, you may want to read The Humpty Dumpty Syndrome: Hope and Help for Hurting People, a non-fiction book for helping people through difficult times. (Now available on Kindle.)
Even now, after over fifty books, helping people continues to be my goal whether I write how-to books or novels; whether I write for adults or for children. These days I focus primarily on writing mysteries, and/or romantic suspense.
My newest ventures are with e-books and you can find many of my novels on Amazon or other electronic book sites. I've recently made available on Kindle, my newest mystery, Deadly Deception, Helen Bradley Mysteries, Death on Arrival, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, Red Sky in Mourning, A Haunting Refrain and When Shadows Fall. You can find a complete listing on my web site under the E-Books heading.
And check out my Writerly blog where I posted my awesome cruise experiences and will continue to post my philosophies, thoughts and snippets of my occasionally adventuresome life. Oh, yes, I also love food and have developed The Healthy Norwegian Blog.
