(The view from my front porch–happy summer!)
My July question is: (NOTE: I discuss “Harry” toward the end.)
Have you come to any new realizations or truths over the past months, such as what is really important in life?
Or how can I make life better for myself and those around me?
I’m going to give that some thought myself. I think it’s a good question to ask from time to time. And now’s the time!
SO WHAT ABOUT HARRY???????????
I’m writing a holiday novella, titled BENEATH NORTHERN LIGHTS, I’ve named my hero Harry. One of my critique partners objects and says it’s an old man name. My Harry is third in the line of Harry’s so it’s a family name.
So my second question is: Should I stick with Harry or change his name and if so, what? Remember I’ll be giving away ebooks to a few commenters.
And don’t forget, I’ve been writing hard and here’s my latest book.

I’m not a big fan of Amish fiction but I do occasionally sample one that’s a bit different. The style of this story reminded me of a storyteller sitting down by the fire and telling the story of the life of one Amish Cradle. At first I didn’t know if I’d continue the story or not. But the main character engaged my sympathy and attention and I read on. The story of a cradle made for one baby but used in successive families was very touching. And each family had a deeply moving story. So yes, I do recommend The Amish Cradle. Not just to fans of Amish stories but to anyone who enjoys a moving story of real life not just amid the Amish.–Lyn

Here is the April Quesion: Are you a pinch cook? Or a recipe cook? Or a little of both? Or a non-cook? ‘-) I define a pinch cook as a cook who walks into the kitchen examines the ingredients in her pantry and fridge and comes up with a meal that she creates, kind of like a ‘play by ear’ musician. Or do you only like to cook from recipes that you carefully select from favorite cookbooks, family favorites or food show? Or both? Or not at all? I really want to know. And I do have a reason that has something to do with writing fiction for asking this! ‘-) Lyn
