My Back Pages

I thought this was pretty funny. I had occasion recently to look at my high school yearbook (don't ask) and saw that I'd listed as my ambition: "To write profoundly, meaningfully, and prolifically enough to win love, respect, honor, and, above all, immense royalty checks."

Ah, callow youth. And so many adverbs!

My quote was the first two verses and chorus from "Wasted Years" by Iron Maiden.

Take care,

My blog review of Generation Dead (earlier this week) is a vote of confidence that your ambition to write meaningfully has already been achieved!

Hello Jeanne,

Thank you for that, and for the exceptional review--it really is one of my favorites and unless you object I'm going to post the link.

Take care,

wow just finished your book. Encouraging my friends over at vampirehuntress to read it in the interim. I hated the ending but look forward to the next. Glad the cover caught my eye.
