Fiction and A Pen Name – J.R. Frank

Fiction teaches us many things whether we realize it or not. That being said, fiction has not been my way of writing as an adult. I wrote stories all the time as a child. Still, after reading many badly written lesbian novels when I got out of college, I’ve wanted a book that was more […]

Missing Links

Missing links is not a blog post about evolution. Um…nor is it a political post (though many of us might wonder at the missing links in the politician’s evolutionary chain).

Happenings in my Writing

This was supposed to be a photo of my puppy. I clearly clicked on the incorrect icon. Web design and writing blogs takes a lot of time. So does writing books. I’m excited to say however that my muse has been busy! Last year, I came out with my first CD, Ordinary Miracles. It was […]
