I’m Featured on Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop

Erma BombeckIt’s a great privilege to be featured on Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop this week. In addition to showcasing different humorous authors, this site provides advice for writers, author interviews, markets and contests.

One of my favorite sections is called, “Erma Says.”

“Do you know what depression is? It’s sitting in your doctor’s examination room. In a paper dress. On a cold table. And it’s the high spot of your week.” (from “Dumpy Paper Dress–March 31, 1977,” which appears in Forever Erma)
