"To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme."
"It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly."

"A blank piece of paper is God’s way of telling us how hard it is to be God."
"The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with."
Inactive Instructor Kelly Stone
All my life I wanted to be a writer, but with a full-time job and family I could never find the time to pursue my goal. In 2001 it finally dawned on me that if I was ever going to achieve my dream I was going to have to squeeze writing time in any way that I could. I started getting up at 3:30 a.m. and writing for two hours before I began my day. Since then my work has appeared in Family Circle, Writer’s Digest, Cat Fancy, The Toastmaster, and Chicken Soup for the Soul & Cup of Comfort anthologies.
I have published 4 books, including a women’s fiction novel, GRAVE SECRET, that received accolades from RT Book Reviews, followed by the TIME TO WRITE series for aspiring and established authors: TIME TO WRITE: No Excuses, No Distractions, No More Blank Pages (Adams Media 2008); THINKING WRITE: The Secret to Freeing Your Creative Mind (Adams Media 2009) and LIVING WRITE: The Secret to Inviting Your Craft Into Your Daily Life (Adams Media 2010).
