My first blog

In this day and age, it is pretty standard for a writer to have a blog.  Unfortunately, I hadn’t a clue what I wanted to write about — I had blog block.

I have been doing some sporadic research on women writers (Did you know the first known author was a woman? or the world’s first novel was written by a woman?) for my own amusement. In this pursuit, I found what I wanted my blog to be about — those writers or books or characters that made an impression on me.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and maybe read a book or two I mention. My first novella, Mr. Darcy’s Christmas Carol, appears in A Darcy Christmas, available October 1, 2010 and I hope you will read that as well.

My first novella can be found in here.



Enheduanna, @ 2300s BCE, was a princess and priestess in ancient Sumeria. She wrote a few hymns to the goddess Inanna that somehow survived. She is the first author and poet in the world that history can put a name to.

Murasaki Shikibu (970s-1030s) wrote what is considered the world’s first novel, The Tale of Genji and it is still being published.
