A Writer’s World

This is a fable about climate change and endangered creatures. Two sisters Aardvarks arrive in the Fabled Forest by accident. Their travel agent, Time Portals to Your Next Adventure, malfunctions and instead of Australia, they are plopped down in Cheets’ clearing in the forest. Here they meet Donald, the fairie, Cheets, the elf, Emma, the farm-girl and all the creatures that inhabit the fabled, mystical forest. Agnes and Annie are so ugly they’re cute. With their jaunty hats atop their weird heads, with their rabbit-like ears and short elephant type snouts, Emma and Donald are entranced.

Stella is delighted to spend quality time with her son. But murder has followed her north to the wilds of this vast winter wilderness . Book #10 brings a new chill to the series.

Suddenly the police are at his door. His goddess, his dream woman is dead and the police like him for the crime. But upon further investigation there are other suspects that are just as likely to have murdered her.

  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 about  Angel of Murder

 
Excerpt from my weekly bloggers

 

Whether you are a reader or a writer you love a little conflict and a few antagonists in any plot. So to the writers of stage plays.

It is a challenge to write conflict with dialogue only. There is no description (like fiction) where you can tell the reader how angry and against something your antagonist is. Granted you have the characters right there to tell the story with their body language but….

I am going to use examples from my most recent play. A children’s play but the rules still apply and are not less challenging because it’s a kids’ play.

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
