Smart, Fun, Relatable Fiction


Here’s a snapshot of my personality, quirks and all.

  • When the soundtrack of a TV program gets scary, I leave the room.
  • I’d rather be home with my husband than anywhere else.
  • I think the best part of going to the gym is leaving.
  • When I was a little girl, I used to soak all the family’s toothbrushes in Lestoil.
  • I equate shopping on Black Friday with waterboarding.
  • I love time alone with my grandchildren so we can play make-believe.
  • The only place I’m allowed to sing is in church due to God’s perfect hearing.
  • My husband and I don’t keep score in Scrabble. We’re just happy we can spell.
  • I started writing fiction because the truth in my life was not believable.
  • I believe debating–especially about politics—is a waste of my good hot air.
  • My mouth kicks in before my brain because I have a sentence to compl-inish.
  • Some of the funniest lines my characters use, I stole from my husband.

  1. Clarice, I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your bio. At times I quivered thinking I was reading about myself.
    Your post today 2-13 was a treasure.


  2. I agree with Janet!! I actually thought I was reading my own bio!! Great minds think alike!!


  3. ‘And, if I do a chore that’s NOT on my list, I write it in anyway just so I can cross it off.’ I thought only I did that!


  4. Oh my, thank you for writing this. This is my first visit here. You have me in stitches. Love your humor. I can identify with the geekier traits, but I’m not able to park straight. Thank you for the smiles. ~Joyce (grew up in Lebanon)


  5. I went over to help my mama clean her house when she was at the hospital. When she got home, she said, “I feel like I need to invite someone over.” Ha ha! I love all your silliness and truth. Makes this life fun living.
