Say it With Song: Writing Music & Emotion

Hi, my name is Moriah Densley, and I can’t write a story without music. Specifically, musician characters. I like to think the crucial moments of a story work better through the filter of music. It’s more comfortable than facing the possibility that my characters [me] hide behind the music. I’m still getting used to the intimate, […]

Weird Stuff Kids Say Part 5: Panda Boy

Forget the Nobel Prize and Carnegie Hall, sometimes my sole ambition for my children is that they grow up to stay out of jail. You might think I’m being melodramatic, but does the school principal have you on speed dial?

I Took Art Lessons To Write My Book

I loved doing research for my new historical, The King of Threadneedle Street. Shameless litte geek that I am, I enjoyed reading about the 19th-century global economy to write my financial genius hero, Andrew Tilmore. Luckily for you, I’m not blogging about that. I’d like to show you how I wrote my artist character, Alysia Villier. I wanted […]
