Slice of Life

It's been said each novel depicts its own slice of life. How I like that!    🍴 🍞 

The Library of Lost and Found, a page turner by Phaedra Patrick, introduces us to an intriguing woman struggling daily and doing good in the way she knows she should. Her slice of life is overcoming a repressive upbringing and developing into a gem of a woman.

My own children's books, I find, cut life into slices as well.  Merry Tilda's slice turns out to be the beauty of a simple fir tree, green and growing, shared by all, season after season. Wild, Wild Wind humorously brings the strong, mischievous prairie wind to story. We all deal with that windy slice of life here in the mid west. Christmas is Coming, which is my upcoming children's book, reinforces a moral slice of our holiday lives.  If you don't share the work load, you will likely not share the prize!

When you next read a delightful book, ask yourself, what slice of life is the focus of this book?  If you write books, clearly identify your story's slice of life. Happy slicing!

Art and Craft Fairs

 My books, my rugs, and I are scheduled for our first 2019 craft sale soon. Stillwater, Oklahoma's 3-day Fall Festival begins Friday November 1 at Stillwater's Fair Grounds. It is a large sale in two or three buildings and shows everything imaginable. If you can make it, you will certainly enjoy it. Look me up, please!

I will also attend a Luther, Oklahoma Pecan Festival mid-November and Jingle Jam Craft and Art Fair in Piedmont, Oklahoma the first weekend in December.

A time for me to buy, a time for me to sell, and a time for new friends and good conversation! Hope you can make it to one of these or any other craft fair you want. Who knows...I might see you there, too.
