“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” ― Ansel Adams
Writing has always been my first creative love, but photography comes in a very close second. Often, here at my blog and site, I write about photography (link to a list of photography posts). And now, I’m delighted to announce:
Some News I’m Pretty Proud Of…
Recently, I’ve had many inquiries into my photography, and I’m so happy to announce my work will be and currently is on display in many public and private venues.
- A publisher bought pieces as part of an educational series (non-disclosed).
- A museum in Milwaukee, a wall mural for an upcoming collection
- As a cover of a book on Prague, title forthcoming, by esteemed publisher, Dreyers-Forlag in Norway
- Several private collectors
In case you’re interested in Buying My Photography in Prints, Cards, Canvases, etc.
Here is a link to RedBubble and my photography there, available in many formats like photo canvases, framed prints, greeting cards, and more. The quality is excellent, and the images turn out beautifully. They also guarantee you’ll be 100% happy with the product.
If you like an image that you don’t see listed at RedBubble.com, send me a note and I’ll add it there for you.
My first creative love is for writing fiction. I attended the excellent Muse & the Marketplace writers conference in Boston in May. The classes I took and agents and writers I met there inspired me, and from feedback on my novel as a result, I’ve worked hard every morning this summer on revising my novel. I still have a ways to go until I’m ready for it to go out on submission to literary agents and then publishers, but I am so happy with the way it is becoming.
I’ve also realized: all of my very favorite books have taken many years to be written. Excellent writing takes time. That is what I am shooting for.
I’ve been working on developing the writing and characters, and I’ve changed the title to reflect the honing: Light from Distant Shores. For all of my dear friends and family, thank you for all of your support. It is a long journey. Your belief means the world to me.
Most of you know how much I love to read, and I’ve kept up the reading throughout the summer. And since GREAT books are hard to find, my friends and I write weekly book recommendations each Wednesday at GreatNewBooks.org. Our team is made up of reading / writing friends and we’ve recently grown to be a team of 9.
We’re going on 2 years of recommending books we authentically love, and we host giveaways of new books out on shelves, at least once each quarter. So if you’re looking for a good book, visit our site and sign up for the 1x weekly email recommendations. We love to share great new books.
Thank you for staying in touch and for your support and kindness. I count myself blessed for all of you.
