The Virus and Your Muse

Let’s face it. Being told what to do is NEVER a good thing. And for those of us who are creative and live by our own set of rules, it’s almost impossible.

So, a lot of the writers I know are feeling stilted and not able to put down a single word on the blank page. (And conversely, there are writers who are thriving in this world where they are no longer considered weird because they don’t venture out of their house very often.)

I have a challenge for all of you. Whether you write prose, fiction or non-fiction, poetry, doodle, draw, or take pictures, I would love to include your work in a collection I’ve entitled,

‘2020 Artists on Lock Down Collection.’

My goal is to create a visual memory of this strange period in time. It’s a safe bet to say none of us will ever forget the stress, lack of toilet paper, and separation from our loved ones, so I think we need a tangible item to sum things up for us.

The details for how to have your work included can be found on my website,


you can email me directly with any questions you might have.

I hope this blog post finds all of you safe and doing your best to navigate these choppy waters.

I am finally a full-time author, who writes legal thrillers, how-to- books, short stories, flash fiction, a tiny bit of poetry, and Blog posts. My published works include 'Guilty until Proven Innocent,' 'Innocent for the Moment,' and 'Moment by Moment.' This is a trilogy called the Jill Adair Series. Additionally, I've written a collection of short stories about my dogs, Howie and Bernie - with a 2nd Collection coming in late 2021. I'm also coordinating an Anthology of Short Stories called, '2021 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology.' This book will be available on on August 1st of 2021. (The 2020 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology is currently available on - the collection includes 30 stories, written by 18 different Authors from three continents.) I am married to my wonderful hubby of over 37 years, and I have two grown children, named Heather and Gregory. I've been blessed with two beautiful grandbabies, Heather Rose and Logan Ernest.
