People: Characters in Skin


Beautiful Sky Ranch, in East Texas, provided my summer occupations during my college years.  I remember meeting a guy down there … I wish I could remember his name . . . I’ll just call him Cole, but I don’t think that wasn’t it.

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Totally agree with you Wosushi! Thanks for sharing!And thanks for your point Jessica. It's easy to tell when someone isn't listening – glazed look, wandering eyes. Sorta takes the wind outta the sails. But I have a couple of friends that truly listen and know me better than I wish. When they do respond, they usually nail how I'm REALLY feeling, for better or worse!Thanks for the comments!

  3. What'd you say? Teasing! Great post. I can always tell when someone is listening or waiting for me to hush so they can say their next thing. Sometimes I'm a crummy listener. My best friend is a great listener and I love after I speak she pauses before answering…just taking it all in!
