Welcome to my World

Welcome to the domain different--to paraphrase from New Mexico's capital city of Santa Fe which bills itself "The City Different." Perhaps this space is not completely unique but my world shapes what I write as well as many other facets of my life. The four Ds figure prominently but there are many other things as well. Here you will learn what makes me tick, what thrills and inspires me, experiences that impact my life and many other antidotes, vignettes and journal notes that set the paradigm for Dierdre O'Dare and her alter ego Gwynn Morgan and the fiction and poetry they write. I sell nothing here--just share with friends and others who may wander in. There will be pictures, poems, observations, rants on occasion and sometimes even jokes. Welcome to our world!

Suggestions for other visits

I promised no sales pitches here and I am not going to break that. I will only say that Amber Quill, which has been my main publisher for twelve years, is closing their doors forever on March 31 this year. That means all the titles of Deirdre O'Dare in their erotic romance lines will be out of print from that day on. I have no idea right now when or even if some or all of them will be republished in time in other venues. I'm pretty sure about half of them will not be for I do not currently intend to remarket them, You can start reading the blurbs for all sixty three titles, two every day or two,  at another blog: https://deirdredares.blogspot.com with links to where they are available. It's an age restricted blog, by the way, so teenagers are not invited. Nuff said!

Now this is not a sales pitch but I am quite disappointed that not many are

following my gwynnmorganalaska blog and learning about the wonderful sport of sled dog racing and some of the events, the people and the amazing dogs that are a part of this extreme sport! I know I have mentioned before my intent to write a book about the women who race their dog teams in the thousand mile endurance races, the Iditarod and the less known but equally taxing Yukon Quest. The racing season is just starting and I will follow all the major races closely and also report often on the doing at SP Kennels which I visited in 2014 and my favoritest mushers, Aliy Zirkle and Allen Moore. They have two litters of precious puppies born this fall and a litter of yearlings that I met as very young pupsters in August 2014. At any rate, please just go visit:  https://gwynnmorganalaska.blogspot.com.
You might be surprised at what you can read and learn! This one is open to everyone and kids may enjoy! I know a lot of school children will be following the Iditarod since the ITC (Iditarod Trail Committee) is huge on education and offer a wide range of fun activities and learning tools to all grade levels and annually sponsor a teacher who rides along in an "iron dog" (snowmobile to us lower 48ers) for the entire race!

As for this page, we will keep on keeping on with memoir tales, editorial comments on occasion and now and then a verse and some old pictures. I just hope a few of my regular readers here will check those other two out and see if anything speaks to you there!
