The Writers Welcome Mat

      This is me, contemplating the big  themes, working on the next novel and  doing research on the great beers of the Northwest. Further study is needed as the sun sets over the Pacific.     

Glad you found us here. The picture in the masthead is a metaphor for the writer’s life: A million problems crashing down, but still a beautiful energy making us glad that we’re alive and writing. I hope it brings you a little serenity as you slave away at the keyboard, or scratch away at the yellow pad, or chisel at your stone tablet. Let us know how you like our new site, and forward any writing questions that occur to you.
