All About Gwyn

An unapologetic Shoe Slut with a penchant for red, Gwynlyn is married with three grown children, a precious granddaughter, an impatient-to-be-born grandson who scared her silly with his early arrival, another grandson due this May, two molting huskies, two cats (the hurt one found in the yard decided to stay), and despite it all, is still, after 30+ years, living her own HEA with her beloved Hubble. She writes historical romance set in the medieval period, but also has a love of science fiction and has several Sci-Fi manuscripts in the works.

Celebrate!

Time.  It’s rarely a friend, often in short supply, and likes to change things—not always for the better. Adages about it abound:   Time heals all wounds (or wounds all heels, depending on the circumstance).  Things will work out in good time.  Time waits for no man (or woman).  A stitch in time saves nine.  Time […]

You. Your Life. Your Writing.

My children came into the world with two sets of grandparents and two sets of great-grandparents.  Safe within the nurturing embrace of their large and loving family, they thrived. I can’t recall whether Son was in kindergarten or first grade, but one day, he arrived home confused and agitated.  A classmate claimed to have no grandparents.  How […]

You, Your Life, Your Writing.

When my children were born, they had two sets of grandparents and two sets of great-grandparents.  They thought nothing of it, safe within the nurturing embrace of a large and loving family. I can’t recall whether Son was in kindergarten or first grade, but one day, he arrived home confused and agitated.  He’d discovered a classmate […]

Pipe Dreams, TV, and Random Research

A writer looking out the window is a writer at work.  A writer sitting on a bench eavesdropping on a conversation is a writer at work.  Even a writer crammed into a tiny, cluttered space searching the internet while a cat wiggles his way into more and more of her chair is a writer at work—as you can see.  The […]

Abracadabra

I love words.  I love their subtlety, their brashness, their clarity, their obfuscation, their evocativeness, their sass, and so much more. Like people, words are multifaceted, imbued with both brilliance and occlusions, light and dark.  They can be courtesans or prostitutes, elusive and elegant or bold and blowsy, similar but not the same, available to anyone with the […]

Guest Author Kristina McMorris: Writing Dual Timelines

I realized from the beginning writing dual timelines was going to be a challenge; I’d never before attempted to interweave past and present storylines into a single novel. Yet due to the nature of what would ultimately become my latest release, The Pieces We Keep—in which a boy’s dreams are mysteriously linked to family secrets […]

Looking Back, Reaching Forward

It was after 1 a.m on this day several decades ago when I woke my husband to say, “It’s time.” After getting the two other children to the sitter and a comedy fit for the Keystone Cops (Hubble sent my suitcase flying across the parking lot when I couldn’t get out of the car.  He tried to […]

Priorities

The post on The Power of Words will have to wait for another day.  Recent events made it seem irrelevant.  There’s a time for that kind of post, but that time isn’t now. I don’t have to rehash the news for you.  You know what’s happened and what is happening.  But for some, it’s not […]
