New Author Webpage




Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.

BUT -


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to "Kaye Wilkinson Barley"

There are even a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.



The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.


See you there!

It took me "61 Hours" to find all the books I've read this year. Then I heard "A Haunting Refrain" that spoke to me. Unfortunately, it was my deceased ex-husband, still bragging about his "Big Grabowski". I wanted to call :The Dogs of Rome" to shut him up, but I wasn't in Rome. I was "Shaken" but I left him a message. "Watch Me Die!" Not that he would, but you can't beat a good book title.
