The Tale of Ononis

The Tale of Ononis by Rob Neufeld Part 1: The Making of a Celebrity ❧  Hare Begins His Tale  Ononis was my region’s name.People now call it Never-the-same.I’ll start with the day a delivery came. The package I got was a devil’s dare,Swaddled and knotted in Swamp Bloat hairAnd bearing, in red, one word: “Beware!” Bloats are creatures from the Land of Mud Pies,Wallowing in waste with tightly closed eyesUntil fears bring tears and the bleary bloats rise.   ❧  Hare’s Colleagues  I asked my boss,…See More

How Food Gives Authors a Sense of Place

Part of being an author is being able to write about a particular place, having the ability to transport the reader where you desire. Today I want to write about the humble white sweet potato, a western North Carolina delicacy. 

Once frost coats the punkin' and Thanksgiving is behind me, I enjoy …

How Book Trailer's Increase Sales

I must admit, when I first started writing I didn’t understand the importance of having a book trailer. At the time I believed the word trailer and book didn’t go together. Unless I was speaking about Hollis Gillespie’s book, Trailer Trashed.

Then I began spending time with successful authors. What I discovered is that most of them have a book trailer that teases readers. Authors offered readers a video snapshot into the story, book…

Hello Renea,

Thanks for your message.  I am a writer with a humorous approach in ongoing works.  I also have a background with training for working in teaching, counseling, and parenting, and have done much, some now with surprising worth.  Now, not wanting to work as a counselor formally, I write and enjoy life whenever possible. I do talk with many young adults seriously, yet often with some lightness and praise for their efforts.

I need to soon wrap up NOT JUST SERIOUS SELF-CARE ACTIONS FOR EARTH ADVENTURERS & Part Time Screw-Ups, which is mainly a serious work aimed at persons feeling somewhat alienated who have some reading skills and laughter to build on.  Usually, I succeed after entertaining their morale spirit with humor or related.  I have been a student of humor applied for several years.

I published a practical book with an illustrator on buying affordable antique furniture earlier, with one to complete of humor about not obsessing about antique furniture. A work of Appalachian humor is nearly ready.  It has taken a long while to locate a worthwhile print on demand publisher, and be able to focus concisely enough on publicizing--almost every writer's plight who hopes to insure a profit.  There is a collection of poems done, and a small novella written from the point of view of a black woman transplanted to somewhere resembling the nearby area of Roan Mountain.  I had a lengthy career requiring much sink or swim gaining of depth of feeling and purpose, and humor to prevent being too serious.  I have lived extensively in several states, and carry much varied diction and cultural flavors of speech.  I defend Appalachia when appropriate, my mother from a large family in western Virginia.  I received 2 bug bites today without my misbehaving, as far as I know. Thanks.
