MURDER AND MAYHEM--SISTERS IN CRIME

Hank Phillippi Ryan knows how to conduct a workshop and inspire writers who are working toward completing a crime novel. She inspires and cajoles and teaches. It was the best workshop I've attended and I've attended quite a few. I CAME HOME INSPIRED AND WROTE FOR THE NEXT TEN DAYS. Ten chapters in ten days. Quite a record for me.
THANK YOU HANK!

Never, Never, Never Give Up

Do what you love to do. Do with with your whole heart and soul. Even when you don't see results, when no one else seems to appreciate what you're doing, don't give up. Just when you think that all is lost, a break comes along.

I've been writing since I was a child. I have always had a sense that life needs to be recorded, that imagination adds to the sum total of the richness of our world. I have thirteen short stories published, two novels, and plays performed at various New Jersey theaters.

I have two novels completed, unpublished, a cache of short stories that have not been published, but that doesn't keep me from writing more. And more. I'm halfway through another novel. I write every day.

When two of my plays were chosen this year for the Playwrights Showcase at the Leonia Theater it was a real pleasure to see words I had written take on life.

Every now and then, writing becomes more than personal. It does what you hoped for--goes out into the world.
