Romancing the Soul (Book) - 6/5/2006 1:33:49 PM|
I am thrilled with this book. It presents so many wondrous stories..so many exceptional connections..so much wisdom and such a profound perception of that which we call soulmate and Twin soul reunions. This will answer many of your questions and will prompt you to ponder on the answers. It will also gift you with inner knowing as regards your OWN reconnection or reunion. I recommend this book to all that are aware of the yearning for their Twin soul or soulmate. Read it, then relax and await your own story. Blessings to the author and readers.

Fall Out (Book) - 7/27/2001 12:54:11 AM
What a wonderful story for our young boys. Ms Putnam has a knack for writing youth stories at its best. A creative mind for knowing exactly what a good, clean book might capture and enthrall the imagination of boys growing into manhood.
I most definitely would recommend this book to all parents with growing boys. With all the garbage out there this is a definite, positive book to occupy young minds and educate them about with relationships with others.
This book touches on many modern day subjects as divorce and having other male role models such as grandfathers, who can contribute a bit of their life enriching inquiring minds of curious boys of this age group.

Betraying Scents (Short Story) - 6/26/2004 5:51:07 AM
Very well done. Nice twists and turns. The sort of story I love to read.
The Luck of the Irish (Short Story) - 2/11/2003 10:56:53 AM
The writing in this one was much cleaner than in "Betraying Scents," but I agree with the other reviewer: I, too, was looking for something more at the end. Brenda's choice of meal at the restaurant was a good touch.
Betraying Scents (Short Story) - 2/11/2003 10:44:01 AM
I'm not quite sure what Loretta's crime was--other than being stupid. It's no crime to talk about killing someone unless (a) the intended victim learns of the plot and fears for his/her safety or (b) you actually try to pull it off. Neither occurred in this story. Loretta wasn't even on the scene. Any two-bit lawyer could get the charges dropped on the spot. You didn't make it clear if Sharon was in on the "plot." The Chief mentioned "blanks," but did Sharon know they were blanks? When "Jenkins" enters a room, you haven't previously told us who "Jenkins" is, which is confusuing. And isn't Jenkins the same officer who handed over the papers? Which would already put him in the room? (could Mac carry that many large policies and bundles of paper in his pants' pocket?) I'd advise watching an episode or two of "Law and Order" before attempting another "mystery," to get a feel for how policemen talk and how they handle witnesses/suspects. I don't mean to be overly critical, but for a writing school graduate you use a lot of trite expressions and flowery descriptions. I also didn't buy Jenkins falling for Loretta so quickly.

Loved this story and also
My Friend Anita. After 20 years as a freelance fiction writer, five as a journalist and several more of writing absolutely nothing--I finally feel the creative juices starting to flow--so I joined the Yahoo Coffeehouse for Writers where I found your site. Thanks for the inspiration! Geanee Pike-Medeiros

Very well written. I was looking for a more explosive ending but nonetheless, it was worth reading.

Interview with Laura Backes (Article) - 5/14/2004 10:27:56 AM
Hi. My name is Darlene Erskine. I work at the Boys and Girls Club of Beaufort County in North Carolina , usa.... I hope you take a moment to read my request because we could use your help. I am trying to teach our kids about their culture and to have pride in their heritage. In rural North Carolina being a black child is not easy. In fact after researching for and writing a grant for a program for the kids I am very proud of what they accomplish in spite of 22% poverty rate and the loss of 4144 jobs in our county since NAFTA. 25% of the adults over the age of 25 have not graduated from high school in our county. 16% of that number is black. There are such extreme conditions after the hurricanes and after NAFTA that education is taking a back seat.
I came across your website while searching for educational materials for minority children.
I was hoping that you could send us a copy of your book, or promotional educational materials you may have . We are trying to promote education of heritage and possibility with these children. We would even be gratefulfor old promotional posters that display some of the prints or if other writers wish to donate any related materials , bookmarks, old marketing posters anything that would display for these children the message that it is okay to be black and there is hope in this world. I am so drawn by the obvious talent of the writers here i know that it would enilghten and encourage these children to see writers and artists that look like them, and also see that there is a world of color beyond North Carolina. Please email back and let me know if you could donate any old posters, bookmarks, cataolgs, misprinted prints, returned books, desk copies
etc to the kids thanks

Excellent!! I have always wanted to be a writer, but being a young mom and having to work many hours I did not have the chance like I wish I would have. But 7 years ago I was able to cut back my hours and began writing, then just a year ago I quit working and began writing even more. I got off the right track many times, but not any more. Your bio and credits are simply amazing! I someday hope to accomplish just as much if not more. I still have much to learn, so any advice would be great! Keep up the excellent work that you do. I fly south about 2 times a year, my family all lives in Myrtle Beach and the ocean is like heaven to me. Godbless.

As a New Yorker, this really spoke to me. I've written some poetry on 9/11, but this article is great because it speaks to the difficulty of finding the words to try to help and heal the world. This is a fantastic start towards that end, anyway!

I have read a lot about 9/11 dear..but this is one of the very touching ones I've read. I feel very sorry for the families but the support among the people is indeed overwhelming. Wish we had it among different religions, especially with the ongoing religious disuptes among Hindus and Muslims in India.
