“It takes a tightrope artist of a writer to create chapters that successfully delve into a killer’s thoughts without revealing his identity in the process, but Sugarek achieves this with a dance of introspection …” Midwest Book Review for Angel of Murder
Welcome to my writing world. My web site and Blog (which now reaches 10+ million viewers on social media) are dedicated to writers, readers, creative writing, story telling and the theatre arts. Sharing my ideas, offering other writers help and encouragement. Three years have now past and my web site has morphed into a platform where I am reviewing best selling books, interviewing other authors about their writing process, and supporting theatre arts.
I will work hard to engage your interest and share valuable topics, about writing, writers and theatre. The craft is a long process and in my experience has taken me a whole lifetime. I am still learning every day. What I do know is to be any good at writing, you must write!
Included in my weekly posts: once a month a best-selling author will share their writing world with us in an interview. Don’t miss it! Sign up for my blog! here on my home page and don’t miss a single post!
Excerpt from my
TS. I met this writer on Facebook and was instantly intrigued by her wacky photos and obvious joie de vie. She writes fiction and also non-fiction on the subject of writing.
Q. Where do you write? Do you have a special room, shed, barn, special space for your writing? Or tell us about your ‘dream’ work space.
JR. I do have a wonderful office in my home that I painted in bright bold colors that reflect me. I write there most often, though I’ll write wherever if need be.
Q. Do you have any special rituals when you sit down to write? (a neat work space, sharpened #2 pencils, legal pad, cup of tea, glass of brandy, favorite pajamas, etc.)
JR. No, for me personally, rituals often detract from just getting down to business. Unless you count eating corn chips by the handful?Q. Could you tell us something about yourself that we might not already know?
JR. I dropped out of Acting school but made it all the way through beauty school, go figure.

Review: “….Trisha Sugarek gives you “permission” to scribble down ideas and not have to write the great American novel every time you put pen to paper. In the first couple of pages, she gets you going with examples and encouragement and she makes you realize that while writing is work, it’s not impossible work….” D.Johnson
