Interview by Creativity Expert Michele Berger

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by new friend, creativity muse, and fellow writer Michele Berger on her blog, The Practice of Creativity. Her thought-provoking questions inspired me to think more deeply about the journey of writing. And her generous praise (although undeserved!) reinforced yet another joy of the writing life—the wonderful people you meet along the way.

I just hope she takes me up on my offer to make her crepes one day! For more, read For the Love of Crepes and Crime.

This week will be a busy but good one. Tomorrow, I’ll wake up early with a panel discussion on website creation at the N.C. Writers’ Network Fall Conference and on Thursday, I’ll speak to the High Country Writers at their monthly meeting.

Somehow, I hope to sneak in two more indulgences: Mystery and Manners, a book of essays by Flannery and the latest Southern Living, which features one of the best collections of Thanksgiving recipes I’ve ever seen. Food and books, what could be better than that?

Here’s to the weekend; hope yours is a good one!


Naked and Hungry Returns to the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market!

And this time, we’re making CREPES! That’s right. Thanks to my dear friend Donna Myers, who is the new events coordinator extraordinaire, I’ve been invited to appear as the guest chef tomorrow at the market.

With the help of my sous chef (husband Robert), we’ll be making two types of crepes: goat cheese, braised spinach and spring onions and for dessert, our famous strawberry cream crepes. The ingredients in these two recipes are provided by N.C farmers so you know that what you’ll be eating is healthy and fresh and comes from a sustainable, eco-friendly source. What could be more delicious? And wouldn’t you like to see Robert in his new Naked and Hungry apron?

At the end of the demonstration, we’ll also be giving away a FREE CREPE PAN to the winner of a raffle. This means that you could pick up your own fresh produce and make the same crepes at your house that very evening. So we hope that you’ll plan to attend and help support our N.C. farmers. Without them, we truly would be naked and hungry!

The market is located at 501 Yanceyville Street in Greensboro, N.C. and the demonstration will last from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m.
