“You fail only if you stop writing.” Ray Bradbury
May 4th, Speaker On Deep POV
Carol J. Post – Speaker On Deep POV
Carol J. Post writes fun and fast-paced inspirational romantic suspense. Her book Out for Justice was nominated for an RT Reviewer’s Choice Best Book award, and Mistletoe Justice was an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund. Carol will be speaking about writing deep pov. May 4, 7 P.M. Where? Barnes & Noble, Carrollwood, 11802 Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa.
Announcing: Writer’s Picnic at Taylor Park in Largo, Sunday, April 17th

Our dear poet and friend, Doctor Jack Robinson, will be very much missed. A sweet man and a talented haiku poet, he left us with many precious memories.
Tribute to Jack Robinson
You leave us, haiku builder
They’ll bring your name back
Lucky the haikus
Shaped by your creative mind
Yea to what they say
On your way good friend
Carrier of great stories
Haikus sing to you. Helen Merchan
