Happy Labor Day 2014

cat in US flag labor dayI hope everyone has a Happy Labor Day. What does one do on Labor day besides relax in a hammock or have a big family picnic? What is labor, really? I’m a writer but sitting down to write isn’t labor to me, it’s rejuvenating, inspiring, and fun. I love to read fiction, but all the time that I’m enjoying the story, I’m analyzing how the author hooked me and keeps me turning the pages. But that’s not work to me. I like to take an early morning walk. I talk to the trees, birds, and friendly cats in the neighborhood. It’s the must-do daily exercise but it isn’t laborious to me.

So now that you know what I’ll be doing, what will you do this labor day?

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
