Six Mark Twain Quotes

Mark Twain postage stamp

The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

What a good thing Adam had. When he said a good thing he knew nobody had said it before.

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.

You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.

I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.

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.
