Life is art; make it fine
Can I contact you through this site?
Sure, you have and can contact me through this site. Nice to hear from you.
Rosemarie- I have published a book of poetry by Raqia Publishing. I wondered if you would like to review it in the Deseret News. April is national poetry month so there might be some interest. I’d be happy to mail it to you.
Can you please tell me if Mary Stocks is included in the midwives discussed in ‘Zion’s Hope’ honors early Utah midwives and female doctors
We are serving a mission in mid Maryland and don’t have access to an LDS bookstore to check out the book. -kk
Thanks for your email. Mary Stocks’ name does not appear in the book “Zion’s Hope.” However, the author mentions a couple of things that might be of interest. One is that being a midwife in Utah in the late 1800s was a stake calling. The other is that she got much of her information from the Pioneer Midwife room of the Museum of the International Daughters of Utah Pioneers. If you are seeking information regarding Mary Stocks, that might be a good organization to start with.
Dear Ms. Howard,
Hello, I read your review of Rapunzel Untangled on Deseret News and found it enjoyable. I then explore your other reviews and also found them informative and entertaining. I tried finding an email address on the Deseret News web page, but could not. I apologize if this is the incorrect forum for this. I am an LDS author living in the Rochester, NY, area (20 minutes west of Palmyra). I have written a touching and poignant bully story titled Souls in Peril I’d love to offer to you for review.
“Max is the boy who has it all, and JD is his opposite. Their worlds collide and Max is forced into a reality he had no idea existed. Now he must help JD survive.”
It is receiving wonderful feedback so far (I didn’t add a web site in fear that your sites may block it, but you can find the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads by typing the book title in the search bar.) This is my third novel. My first, Unlovable, is currently being made into a movie! If you are interested, please let me know and I will mail you a copy of Souls in Peril. Thank you for your time!
PS: Souls in Peril is a clean novel with no swearing and no sex.
Utah Pioneer Heritage Arts is joining with the Utah Museums Association, Pioneer Heritage Company, Sons of Utah Pioneers, Fort Douglas Military Museum Living History Detachment, and others to help form the Rocky Mountain Living History Consortium with the intent to help Utah’s historical interpreters tell Utah’s unique stories in world-class ways.
We are having an organizational meeting in the form of a Living History Soirée (dutch oven dinner, entertainment and demonstrations included) on January 25th, 2013 at the Fort Douglas Military Museum. Would you be interested in attending and reporting on our efforts for the Deseret News?
Sounds like an interesting meeting. I checked with my editor at Deseret News and he said they might be interested. Could you tell me a little more about the event and its purpose so I can submit a decent story proposal? Thanks!
Utah Pioneer Heritage Arts is spearheading the formation of the Rocky Mountain Living History Consortium because our area of interest and responsibility is the entire state. We want to tell Utah’s unique story to the world.
Most of the other organizations have more limited areas of interest/responsibility. We also feel strongly that cultural heritage tourism is the way to nourish historical interpreters (including artists) within the state.
I have several documents I can send you that will provide much background, including the categorized list of organizations we are inviting, and the schedule of events for that night. May I send them to you by email? What address should I send them to?
Thanks for your quick response, Clive. Yes, please send any info you would like to share to me via this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rosemarie, thanks for your review of My Loving Vigil Keeping. It was a challenge to write, but a pleasure, because of the fun of meshing real characters with fictional ones. I was a bit surprised that you referred to the Pleasant Valley Ward as a branch throughout your review, especially since I refer to Bishop Parmley many times. The PV Ward remained active until 1928, when the WInter Quarters mines closed. At that point, nearby Scofield became the ward, where before, it had been the branch, off and on. And oh, those Finns! What fun.
Thanks for your comment. I apologize for not getting the fact about the Pleasant Valley Ward correct in the review. It was obvious that you spent many hours doing the research for this book.
Best wishes to you in your future writing projects.
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for the review you wrote for the Deseret News which went up on the 4th August re my book ‘The Crystal Realm Krytor’s Return’.
From the review it sounds like you really enjoyed it. I hope they let you keep the book. If they didn’t, he next time I come to the USA I’ll pop into Springfield and sign one for you.
We are currently editing the second book and would love to have it ready for Christmas, but I just don’t spend all my time writing unfortunately and it may not come to pass.
Once again Thank you and don’t stop reading.
Thanks, Chris, for your kind remarks. It is a great read. Yes, keeping the book is part of the deal. I’ll look for your visit to Springville. Good luck with finishing the next book. Let me know when it is ready.
I saw your review of SLCA concert and wondered if you also do articles about upcoming concerts. Mary Johnson, who has taught recorder up at the “U” for many years, has a group of talented musicians that perform Early Music (14th century). The group is Sine Nominee and they will be performing on April 29th – 5:00 PM at the All Saints Episcopal Church, 1710 S Foothill, Salt Lake City.
Thanks for your comment and suggestion for an advance article. The answer to your question is “yes.” I will check with the editor I work with at Deseret News and see if they would be interested in an advance story on Sine Nominee’s concert in April.
Are you one of the group members, or a member of SLCA?
