Answer Creek by Ashley Sweeney

Short and sweet today as my enterprising and special friend, Ashley Sweeney, has published a wonderful book about a young woman who is part of the infamous Donner party struggling its way to California, and her novel has made its debut this month! What a perfect time to curl up with a good book, a cup of coffee or tea and maybe a warm roll or piece of chocolate and read about someone else’s trials and tribulations . . . and triumphs in the end. There will be triumph, if I know Ashley.

One reviewer states, “Ashley E. Sweeney’s novelization of the Donner Party fuses history, realism, and luminous prosehttps://www.forewordreviews.com/reviews/answer-creek/.” My favorite kind, along with depth of character. 

This is Answer Creek, and I hope everyone will take a look. I am anxiously awaiting delivery of mine.

Child Dreaming in WindowAccording to Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert Olen Butler, the process of writing is not intellectual, but emotional, and it is necessary to enter our dreamspace in order to write honest, inspired fiction.

I dream a lot.

I like to know what other people are thinking. I hope you will let me know. You can disagree with me, of course, but please be nice about it.

The photo above? That’s me, eagerly looking out the window at the world. Many pounds and wrinkles later—still doing it.
