    Mary never thought anything of the young man coming up on her porch to ask her for a cup of water. After all, it was a hot summer afternoon in Birmingham, Alabama. Little did she suspect that her act of kindness would change her life forever. He followed her into her home and attacked her, leaving her with a choice to make at the tender age of 15. She could put everyone at risk and tell her story, or she could live with the fear and pain of what happened and protect her loved ones.

    Nine Houses shares Mary’s inspiring story of adversity, abuse and escape. It reveals the heart-wrenching tale of a young girl forced into a tumultuous marriage that lasted for 30 years and how she overcame the pain that accompanied the truth of what happened.

    power of perception writers with April Erwin

    in Spirituality


    “Dream big, be bold, no fear! April Erwin is the author of suspenseful and humorous inspirational contemporary stories that reflect her faith and life motto. A lifelong resident of Independence, MO, April loves living in her hometown. Raised in the Gospel, she's thrilled to achieve her dream to become a writer and use that to witness of her Christian faith. She holds an Associate in Graphological Science, the study of handwriting analysis, tutors dyslexic and reading challenged individuals, enjoys photography, is a singer/songwriter and records original music with her sister, Angel. Also the author of Dysfunction Junction and Missing Pieces, Justice Burning is her third published novel.”
    Music has been an integral part of my life forever. I started singing in an A cappella trio called, The Erwins, with my mom and sister when I was about 11. I began writing songs in 2001, when Angel and I joined and recorded our first two original songs. "Free to Fly" and "Rain on Me".
    I started writing my first "book" about bunnies in First grade. In the Fifth grade and I filled 3 notebooks by hand telling a suspense story. My Senior year in high school I saw a scene in my mind of a young woman in an attic exploring a trunk that had been left to her as part of an inheritance. At first it was just the scene, but soon it expanded and after several years of writing classes, I published Missing Pieces. It was adapted as a school play by my high school Alma Mater where the story was first born.
    Dysfunction Junction was my second book about a Romantic Comedy about a young songwriter looking for love.
    After high school I worked full time and took classes that intrigued me. Writing, photography,  & graphology to name a few.

    Writers Tricks of the Trade - F is for Facts Episode 12

    in Current Events

    In the old Dragnet show, Sgt. Joe Friday used to say, "The facts, ma'am, only the facts." But when a writer is creating a book or story part of their process is making sure to check facts,particularly when they are setting out a particular set of circumstances. If you get it wrong, some of your readers will know and possibly spread the word. The internet is a wonderful source of information, but if you can't find what you want, let your fingers do the walking. Once you've figured out who might have the information you need, pick up the phone and call. It might be a friend, or the public relations division of a police department, hospital, public entity or any number of possibilities. When Morgan St. James was writing "Betrayed," she needed to know what would happen in the late 1950s if an inmate in an Illinois prison was beaten to a point where they had to be on lifesupport. The information was not readily available on the internet, so she called the public relations department at the prison in Illinois and discovered her answer, The Public Relations officer researched her and called back with the information that the policy had changed over the years. What would have happened now, wasn't the cae then. Back then the inmate would have been kept in the prison infirmary. So, St. James was able to portray the scene correctly for the era.


    Okay,let's assume you've got the facts, details and any other pertinent information. How much does your reader REALLY want to know? Are you overwriting and boring them with details fans of your genre really are not interested in?Is the technical information much more than they care to read? Do they want the story to just keep moving?


    In a lively discussion authors Morgan St. James, Dennis N. Griffin and Eric James Miller will share their knowledge and experience when it comes to, "Just the facts, ma'am."
