So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Help us Help Others

From now until June 1, Estelle Rice and I are offering our proceeds from the sale of Paws, Claws, Hooves, Feathers and Fins to the Clay County Food Pantry when you order from City Lights Books in Sylva, NC.  This volunteer organization feeds many people and the need is large right not.

City Lights is offering a reduced price for shipping as their way of donating.

Send a book to a friend who is staying home for protection from COVID-19.

Signing books last December - It is a great gift to have on hand for those random times you need one.
Remember a birthday coming up and send this delightful book of stories and poems about domestic pets, dogs, cats, horses and birds.

This is what author Lisa Turner said about our book:

 Evokes those special memories and relationships with our animal friends

"The emotional experiences with our beloved pets are captured in poetic detail and images in these wonderful stories in Paws, Claws, Hooves, Feathers and Fins. Our human lives are so enriched by the special relationships we have with all creatures large and small, and these stories capture this delicate and powerful drama so much that we will enjoy reading them again and again. Highly recommend."

Invitation to writers - Open House at City Lights Bookstore

We hope you will join us at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva, NC for this event. I look forward to seeing old friends, my readers, and those who want to know more about NCWN West, our regional chapter of North Carolina Writers' Network, the state literary organization.


We welcome all Netwest members, as well as wannabe members, to a friendly literary gathering on November 10. 

We will begin the reception upstairs in the Regional Room, with finger foods and other assorted goodies, as well as coffee, tea, cider, and wine. We'll have Echoes Across the Blue Ridge prominently displayed, along with books by individual Netwest members. 
If you want to have your book available at the open house, call City Lights with details, so that the store can enter it into their system beforehand. 

Singer-songwriter Angela Faye Martin and guitarist Paul Schofield will provide music for us.

Shortly after 2:00, we will go downstairs to the Cafe, where our three featured writers will read. An open mic. will follow. The sign-up sheet will be upstairs, so please sign up when you arrive, if you wish to read. We will set a time limit depending on how many members have signed on to read.
