Question 4

(I have intentions of adding a new question every week.  Sometimes life gets in the way.)

Q4: What do you find the hardest part about writing? And what’s your favorite and/or easiest part? Anna. (more…)

Question 2

Q: How much time do you devote to writing? Rita M. What’s your process of writing like: Do you set a daily “this many pages” or “write for this long” goal? Do you send chapters to editors/beta readers along the way or wait until the end? Do you outline the story arc ahead of time or wait for the characters to tell you what happens next? Anna. (more…)

Question: How do you pick character names?


How do you pick character names? (more…)


to help me write an informative biography, I’d like my readers/fans to ask me questions.
What would you like to know about me? it can be anything … though if it’s too personal I might not answer.. LOL

So far I have questions like:
How do you pick character names?
Is John a real person?
when did you start writing and why?

I’m going to select a new question to answer every few days.

Ask your questions in the comment box.

Time Shadows

Good news! I’ve got another book that was just released,

Time Shadows is a fun paranormal time travel.

What happens when an 800 year old sorceress sends a modern day woman back in time?

answer: anything!


Book #6, the final episode, in The Journal Series, is now live on Amazon in ebook.  Print will be available on May 18.  It has been an awesome journey for me.  Thank you all.

The Journal: Martial Law by [Moore, Deborah D.]


Winter is coming

It’s a cloudy, dreary day out, weather wise, but I have a sunny smile!  I just finished checking off my “Winter Prep – Fall Chores” list.  This computer saved list helps me keep track of all the things I need to get done before the snow flies … and snow will be here soon.

Being single, if I don’t do something, it doesn’t get done, so this print out is critical to me.  It shows everything from restocking the pantry to changing the furnace filters; from filling the woodshed to filling the metal trash can with bird seed; from turning the cistern to turning the birdbath.

I love lists.  They keep me focused, and it’s so easy to forget something when I want to be outside enjoying the fall and all the beautiful colors.  I try to do that too, because it’s just as important to live your life as it is to do anything else.

Now, MY list will be different than yours.  I need to shut off the outside water faucet and drain that pipe, or it will freeze and burst, and the bird bath is the same: if I don’t turn it over, it will fill from rain or snow, freeze, and break the concrete bowl.  This is because here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, it gets cold, really cold, and that can happen over night. Sometimes there is no warning when the temperatures drop and I have to be ready, I have to be PREpared.  If you live in the south, you won’t have these issues, but you will have some I don’t.

So, make a list of all that you do or need to do, to be ready for the change of season, keep it saved to your computer, and update when you need to.  It will help keep you moving forward.

And remember, no matter who your candidate is, get out and VOTE!
