Debut Novel     Published Works    Opportunities   About Beth  



Words can invite you to step into a pair of moccasins and walk through the woods.

Or help you slip on a pair of track shoes and sprint to victory.

Words can be the patent leathers that take you to meet the president.

Or they can weigh like the moon boot that protects a broken ankle.

Words make stories that ask writers and readers to leave themselves behind for awhile. Step out of your skin and into someone elseís. Sometimes youíll shiver with fright. Other times your heart will ache with loss. Or dance with joy.

Maybe youíll walk away with a bit of understanding of someone elseís life and experiences that you didnít have before.

Let the words carry you away.
