We must have a place to sleep and something to eat. We must have the material and time to produce our work of love. Those things cost money. And so it was that I began my craft - HomeSpun Literature.
I am what some might consider ultra-conservative. My books contain no offensive language - not even the westerns. The focal characters are never anti-heros, and the stories all end on an upbeat note. I am of the "happy everafter" generation. I believe in simplicity. I won't send you running for the dictionary, nor leave you pondering a thought - you won't have time. My books are, in a word, breathless. I plunge into a story with action, allowing the reader to surface briefly for air before diving back into action.
My favorite is the novella, which can be read in a quiet evening. If you don't have time to read every night, this may be a good choice. It is ideal for people with short attention spans. People often ask me "Which book is your favorite." I often say, CASSIE." I dreamed this western romance and got up at 2:00 in the morning to sketch it out. It has action, humor and mystery. In reality, my favorite is probably whatever book I am writing at the time. I write not simply for profit, but for pleasure - yours and mine.

God graced me with multiple talents. I don't remember a time that I didn't share those talents with others. I gave many drawings to fellow students who asked for them. My carvings and sculptures might be found anywhere. I've lost count of the cakes I've decorated for people. The same is true of my writing.
At some point I realized that my time was worth something. It is difficult to put a price on something from the heart. It's like putting a price on life itself. If such is the case, then doctors and lawyers do. In reality, the cliche' is correct. Time is money.
