Time is the Coin of Your Life

Welcome Everyone...

Dee Cohoon-MadoreAs many of you might already know, my husband, Jim, and I live in the small community of Bay View. We are just mere minutes from the town of Digby, Nova Scotia, the scallop capital of the world. It is an absolute pleasure to be fortunate enough to live by the Bay of Fundy and watch the scallop fleet and lobster boats pass by daily. 

Writing has been an almost daily part of life for the past number of years. I was a late starter in my writing career, but I believe I have more than made up for the lost time.

Nobody likes being constantly reminded about COVID, especially since we hear it daily in the news. Still, it helped me accomplish a lot during that time. The Bench and The Room were completed in 2020. Along with and just under the wire, on New Year's Eve, I had officially completed The Cabin at Kanyon Lake, rounding off my numbers to three books for that year.

At the beginning of 2021, I wrote JOY and Keeping Secrets, with bragging rights to 5 books in fifteen months, and the year is not over yet!

These titles are available on Amazon, with all of my other reads.

As a footnote, I am currently working on a new book titled Notches. Another novel is also in the works with no working title yet, but lots of encouraging compliments from my test reader, who is anxiously awaiting new pages.

Here's a Cute Tidbit

Consider this weird truth. Fiction writers are basically liars on paper. They make things up about people that don’t really exist. The point is NOT to tell the truth but to tell as interesting a story as possible while still being believable. They play with the facts so that the story makes sense and hooks the reader. 

When I’m stuck for a character’s back story, I’ll base it on myself or the real-life of someone I know and change the facts to disguise reality.

In the end, I’m just a liar in my own world.

As you keep reading, I'll keep writing.
