Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Today's view

The view from my study window this morning.
Can you see the Peaks of Otter in the distance?

This morning an idea came to me for a YA novel: working title is Stuck. I've got a plot laid out and 587 words of the first chapter in the computer. My goal is to have a book to pitch to an agent at the James River Writers Conference in October.

Can I go the distance? We'll see.
