Welcome to Following the Whispers blog

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.

“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf

“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

The Writer's Chat Room

I've been invited to do something very very cool. This Sunday evening, 7 pm EST, 5 pm Mountain time, I will be the guest at The Writer's Chatroom - an online question and answer discussion featuring different authors each week. This week is tis moi. Here is the link:


I just had my first lesson in participating in a chat room. It looks like fun. Please join Lisa Haselton and me and others from around the world, I understand, to talk about writing, publishing, etc.

Good luck to you. Have you tried Blog Radio? I did that once. It was a lot of fun. It forced me to really take the time to review my material and my goals and strategies as I did not want to sound like a buffoon tot he audience.

Hilary, that's the plan!
