Weekend at the Theater: Book of Mean Mormon Girls

Two nights. Two musicals. Two very different experiences. This made for one interesting weekend.

Sunday Story Time: Me, a Van and Neil Diamond

My first and last loves were both named Neil. And this weekend I got to see my first one again - Neil Diamond. To understand why he's my first love, I'd have to take you back when I was 5-years-old traveling across the country for a summer in a van.

10 for Tuesday: 10 Books Stuck in My Head Forever

Some books just stick with you, for whatever reason. Sometimes it's not even because they are particularly amazing.

This time it's my characters favorite songs and the songs they secretly love but don't want to admit to anyone. (You know, like you secretly love Dancing Queen but won't admit it.)

Journey in Song: Harmonizing Music, Literature and Halloween

All right, admittedly it appears delving into music might stretch the limits of a blog about writing and books. On top of that, I’m also connecting it to my Halloween countdown theme (night #6). Have I gone crazy? Not yet. I don't think. Stay with me, because I’m going to bring it all together. I promise. Let’s start with Bob Dylan.
