About Me

An interesting thing happened on my way to writing a novel. I heard about a writing challenge--writing a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. I thought it would be fun to do, just to see what would happen.

What happened was I wrote a 117,934-word novel in 30 days... Pen Stroke ~ A Novel Journey. It offers a humorous look at writers writing a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, along with a kahuna quest, time morphing, the power of wishes, the reality of imagination, and some Maui magic.

And then, somehow, as if by magic, the blog--and the books--started to grow. Novel Notes: 30 Days ~ 30 Chapters grew out of the novel, and then another book started to grow...


I created Mocha Latte as my pen name, since I totally love coffee and was doing a somewhat crazy--and very magical--thing of writing a novel in a month.

We all have magic inside us. Words can bring forth that magic; words can show us things and take us places we never dreamed of.

The purpose of this blog--and my books--is to share the magic and to show you how you can find the magic of words within yourself.
