What Inspires Me, Part 3: The GLAWS Years

There’s the stereotype of writers sitting alone in their basements, tapping out their novels on their typewriters, but that is not the case.  Southern California homes don’t have basements. Oh, wait, there’s more to that.  Cheri Tree of Quattro University use to say, “There is no such thing as a […]
