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; our dreams dive deep into our true selves—into our anxieties, fears . . . and joys.

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

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.
