Favorite Quote from my book Journeys

Not long after I wrote Yellow River Pledge during a phone interview with a local librarian, I was asked what was my favorite quote from the story. You'd never have believed I was a writer, I froze, tongue twisting in my mouth as I ran through the pages of text in my mind hoping something would come to me. When it didn't I stalled by asking the interviewer, "There's so many. I'll have to think on a favorite. What's yours?"


Within minutes, she'd given me three and I felt as if somehow, I'd let my characters down. Even though I knew they lived only in my mind and imagination, I felt as if I'd disappointed them. 


When I finished Journeys as I was making the final edits, I made a point of scribbling down a few quotes that I could recite when asked. Funny thing is, no one's asked yet. So...I decided to bite the bullet and put it out first. 


There are a couple within the chapters of the nine drivers that I really like, especially the engineer and the woman who drives around in the clean car.  I'd be really interested to hear yours!  Here's one of my favorite quote from my book Journeys.

Author Interview for Mybookplace.com

I was fortunate to be interviewed for mybookplace.com recently. It was posted today. Got me to thinking about my journey of writing. When I first started writing, it was usually about something one of my cousins had done, maybe the loneliness of losing a loved one, and / or something else monumental in my life. I'm enjoying the path I'm on right now. My genre of stories seems to be growing and I'm happy with my growth as a writer. But I also hope I never forget where I came from.

Book Review - Journeys

Favorite quotes by the reviewer included: “”All day long I watch people on their journeys, coming and going from one place to another. I’ve come to realize that the path is just as important as where the journey takes us.'” “From one minute to the next, we never know, what’s coming, what’s lost between the blinks of life.”

Favorite Quote from my book Journeys

The vibrant colors of my life on the slick, thin pages were so green, I could smell the fragrance of grass damp with dew; blue so intense I could hear the water falling like rain at my feet, and yellow so bright I had to shade my eyes to ward off the morning sun. From the book Journeys
