All this year, I've been writing a poem a day. I said I would write a poem a day until a larger project pulled me away. This month I'm adapting Carmen (the opera) for teens. For most of the month I have continued to write a poem a day. This week I have missed a couple of days as I have spent more time on the opera. After I finish my first draft by the 31st, I plan to dive back into The Hounding (my mystery novel) which was published as an eBook back in 1999, for a complete rewrite. eBooks have finally found their time, and The Hounding needs to step into the 21st century. So, I may become more sporadic with my poetry writing, but I will continue to write every day. This is a terrific commitment, once which gives me great joy and a feeling of accomplishment.
Blue Roses and Copperheads and Common Women are now available on Amazon.com in book form.
In Kindle-compatible format at Amazon.com are my short story Summer's Over and my mystery novel The Hounding, which is an homage to Sherlock Holmes and has received great reviews. You can also find either of these on my website in pdf format at www.SandradeHelen.com.
A myriad of plays: full length, one act, solo, ten-minute, and monologues. Please hie yourself to my website for excerpts, even some mp3 versions. www.SandradeHelen.com
