Nov 21, 2015

Halloween is over. Daylight Savings is gone for another year. The holidays are fast approaching. In fact, the days are flipping by faster than a calendar montage in an old black and white movie. This, I find, is what happens as I’ve moved to The Other Side of Sixty. Things get away from me...

Writing From Your Guts Without Spilling The Beans

Jul 24, 2015

Was this the summer you promised yourself you’d really get working on your memoir? It’s not too late, you know.   I’m offering this half-day workshop in my home to a limited number of writers.

Mar 16, 2015

This is a tale of two spas Or it’s a tale of one woman growing up. Or it’s a tale of one woman growing up and how that manifested itself when she visited two spas several decades apart. Or it’s all of these. You decide. In the early ‘80s on a Valentine’s Day weekend,...

Scene from the “Who Gives A Shit” File

INT. DAY. SKECHERS SHOE STORE, SHERMAN OAKS GALLERIA. The shop is empty except for an OLDER WOMAN, the customer,  and TWO 20-SOMETHING MEN, the sales staff.
