Looking In The Window: Stuck

          I carried the blue canvas stadium chair to the beach and planted it in the deep, white sand. A baby lizard lay in the seat. My husband, Rick, flipped it out with his hand and turned around to set up his chair. Tail and all, the tiny creature measured only one to one-and-a-half inches. It writhed in the grained earth.      Bright sunshine lit up the spring day, but the shore felt chilly to my bare feet. He must be cold. I stared at the lizard. His little arms and legs so thin; his fingers, like short pieces of thread, wiggled frantically. “Now you’ve done it.”      Rick sat down.      “He can’t travel on the beach,” I said.      Rick stood. Using his foot, he scooped up a large amount of sand with the lizard atop it. He took several steps, and the sand filtered to the ground, so he flicked off the lizard and repeated the process. At first the little reptile squirmed as though he tried to escape. But after a while lay very still while Rick moved him. At last Ri

I am a mother and grandmother, author, editor, promotions expert. I am a licensed insurance agent and am studying to be certified as a Life Coach. Those are the many hats I wear.

Many writers were avid readers as children. Were you? If so, what did you read? YES always! I’ve been an avid reader as far back as I remember and I read horse books (Black Stallion series, Misty of Chincoteague, etc.) voraciously. In

Looking Out The Window: Diana Sharples Talks About Her New Young Adult Novel, Because...Anonymous

A Warm Welcome To Diana Sharples Hi Diana,  First, tell us a little about yourself. Hey, y’all! I’m that crazy lady with the pink-streaked hair who rides that Screamin’ Eagle Harley and has and all the howling huskies! Actually, I’m Diana Sharples, and yes, I do have pink streaks in my hair. Because you gotta have fun in life, right? And I do ride my own Harley. For the same reason. I write clean, contemporary young adult fiction. My debut novel, Running Lean, was published several years ago by Zondervan, but shortly after that I fought a battle against breast cancer. It brought my marketing efforts to a halt but didn’t stop me from writing. So this year I’m finally back with not one, but five new novels. Because … yes, I am a little insane. One of those novels is the sequel to my debut novel, and another is a much-loved book I’ve had around for a while and have rewritten several times. But what I’d like to talk about today is the new YA mystery series I’m self-p
