eBooks for Sale!

In case you are wondering Why on Earth, an eBook? I do have answers on that page.

A number of years ago I start a Short Story Writing Game. But I got busy with a new life after Dad died, and just let it go. I'm willing to restart this game where we look at the requirements for short stories, choose one plot line per week or month, and wait to see what comes in! You are welcome to take part - Except! Wait! You need to be subscribed to the RoseBouquet first! Subscribe HERE!

Here is the Index to ALL my Short Stories from back when we first started this Short Story Writing Game.

Do You Love Reading?

Like you, and most writers, I've loved to read almost as long as I can remember. Reading and writing are closely tied together. It's like a language, once you learn to understand it, you find yourself speaking it too.

I learned to read and speak English as a second language when I started school in an old-fashioned one-room Country school. and I often tell the funny story of how my mother prepared me and when I first spoke those prepared answers on my arrival at that country school.

BUT by Christmas I was reading books to my younger siblings! I devoured books more than food, and read anything, even a box full of Readers' Digests when Dad was a garbage man. In school, I gobbled up detective series, romances and adventure, even biographies.

As I grew older I became more discriminating, and in a period of deep spiritual searching and growth in the 1970s and early 80s, I began to look for specific books to help me get closer to God. I wanted to understand His ways in my life, and how to get answers to my prayers - consistently. Fortunately, I had a boring receptionist-switchboard operator job for most of those years, and was allowed to read hours on end. The books that came into my hands at that time were the books that shaped me into who and what I am today.

Then, when writing poetry one day, I remembered that I had never thanked my first grade teacher for teaching me to read! So I wrote a poem, I Owe You Gratitude to express how special this skill of reading and writing is to me.
