A Little Fun from Another Me


Miss Liv II Front Cover VERY FINALAs an artist I learned my creativity far exceeded any box that society or gallery marketers tried to shove me into. So when I started writing novels, I saw if I published under only one name, readers would scratch their heads on their second purchase with a great big, “How did we get from there to here?” So, Kennedy J. Quinn was born. Really, it’s just my name backwards – if you put in my nickname ‘Quinn’ as my first name. So it’s all just another me. Sheri J. Kennedy with a twist.

Ms. Quinn just released her 3rd novel (4th book since 2 are under one cover) The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone – Book II: Memory Key. (Available on Amazon along with Book I: Journey Key) And I’m so excited about the upcoming Launch Party, I just had to share! Come out and meet both me’s and enjoy some handmade shortbread and a spot of Mariage Freres tea. See you there!

Things that Look Like Other Things

Snow DoughnutThis is supposed to be the theme of my next sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project, but I haven’t made much headway on that book since I’m still madly editing my next novel in the Miss LiV Adventures series. Nevertheless, I am seeing the world in this strange way of Things that Look Like Other Things. When it snowed the other day, I thought this stepping stone that my step-daughter made for us years ago looked like a chocolate doughnut or cake with candy sprinkles and a cherry in the middle…or am I just craving sugar again?

First Day of Camp


What a day…2 hours of editing Miss Livingstone for my Camp NaNoWriMo 75 hour goal, a post for ‘A’ of the A to Z Blogging Challenge, 5 hours to FINISH *Yay!* the full cover wrap for Feeling Human, and 1 hour down, probably at least another 2 to go doing the final check on the ARC proof for Feeling Human.

Somewhere in all of that I managed to hang out with my husband a little bit, but not much else. At least I changed the scenery several times – home, library, my office, Starbucks, and home again. It really helps me stay to task to change environments when my attention flags.

How do you keep on editing or writing when your brain wants to move on?
