    Thanks, Nonnie, for you kind comments about my poem, they are much appreciated.

    Yasmin Elaine Waring – Feb 07, 2016

    Thank you Nonnie for your kind comments on PROFESSOR EINSTEIN'S LIVING PROOF. Believe me, they are cherished.

    Larry Strattner – Jan 05, 2016

    Thanks for Resolution *. I never read your bio before. Compelling. I have a Nobel Prize for emotional disturbance and overreaction, plus one arterial stent. I love Beate but she told me I can't have that prize. I don't know why I write either, it's certainly not because I sell a lot of books. Happy 2016.

    Gary Percesepe – Jan 04, 2016

    Hi Nonnie. Thanks for reading and commenting on my poem today. I enjoyed reading your profile. Cheers!

    Digby Beaumont – Sep 22, 2014

    Deb Oestreicher – Nov 13, 2013

    Thanks, Nonnie, for your comment and fave for "On the Roof." Much appreciated. And I don't want Marie to jump, either.

    Darryl Price – Nov 08, 2013

    Hi and welcome!

    Charlotte Hamrick – Oct 20, 2013

    Nonnie, belated thanks for reading and faving "missing". I didn't get an email notification and just now saw it. I appreciate your time!

    Javed Hayat – Oct 08, 2013

    Hi Nonnie, thank you for your wonderful comment on a boy who knew death. Appreciate it :)

    Carol Reid – Sep 29, 2013

    Grazie, Nonnie!

    Foster Trecost – Aug 31, 2013

    Hi Nonnie, thanks for reading and commenting on Sliding Windows, means a lot. fos.

    Jenny Rawls – Jun 10, 2013

    Nonnie, I've always thought of the character 'Never Let Me Go' introduced as kinda vile, evil, no good; an editor who breaks down voices and by extension, people. A bunch of poems afterward serialize some of the damage he does. I don't think anyone saw him as the man behind the proverbial curtain, but he's one of these characters who sometimes works invisibly.

    In any case, Michelle from Southport trumps him.

    Gita M. Smith – Jun 09, 2013

    I would use 'Michelle from Southport" to teach students how dialogue moves plot. It's delicious!

    Jenny Rawls – Jun 06, 2013

    Thank you for your comments on "Break" Nonnie. That character had been floating in my head for months.

    Barry Basden – Jun 06, 2013

    Thanks, Nonnie, for letting me know you liked Instructions. The puppy, yeah.

    Tim Young – May 04, 2013

    My pleasure, Nonnie. Always pleased to help make things good.

    Jenny Rawls – Apr 28, 2013

    Thank you, Nonnie, for commenting on and faving "Never Let Me Go". I'm glad you enjoyed the "mind trek".

    Gary Hardaway – Mar 16, 2013

    Thank you, Nonnie, for reading and the kind words regarding "Metastasis".

    Gloria Garfunkel – Mar 09, 2013

    Well, it's taken me months to get back to you too. I forget to check old stories for comments. Thanks for the Hair and the Whore. Family Therapy is a good group. gg

    John Riley – Mar 03, 2013

    Hi Nonnie, thanks for commenting and faving "Middle Age." I'm happy you enjoyed it.

    Steven Gowin – Feb 26, 2013

    Nonnie, thanks for the notes on the "MacGowans." We forgive your Catholic heritage. Our family history is so lost that I've decided to just lie it up. Dad also said we were directly descended from Charlemagne . My wife's African American so I think we'll need some Zulu Kings or the West African equivalent for the kids... we're already set up with nose bleeds and migraines.

    John Riley – Jan 22, 2013

    Nonnie, I just saw you quoted on my birthday piece. Thanks and I'm delighted it introduced me to you a little bit more.

    David Ackley – Dec 12, 2012

    Thanks, Nonnie for the comment on " Under the Skin." Yeah, those are all the questions I had too and no better answers.

    Mathew Paust – Dec 12, 2012

    Nonnie, thank you much for your perceptive reading of Four Hearts and a Vase of Jonquils. Your generous words are encouraging.

    Mathew Paust – Nov 30, 2012

    Nonnie, your kind words for my poem Conjured Love are encouraging. As I haven't studied poetry much, my own stuff tends to the instinctual or imitative.

    Foster Trecost – Nov 29, 2012

    Hi Nonnie, thanks for reading and commenting on a bar for all occasions. I always appreciate your time and thoughts. fos.

    J. Mykell Collinz – Oct 31, 2012

    Hi, Nonnie. Thanks for reading 'Assiduity Five.' I greatly appreciate your comment.

    Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 30, 2012

    Yes, I did first write Saratoga in third person and thought I caught them all, but they're sneaky, like minnows. I will trap the three you found. Thank you so much for telling me. Of course that confuses the reader. Bless you!

    Foster Trecost – Oct 14, 2012

    Hi Nonnie!

    Meg Pokrass – Oct 14, 2012

    So happy you are here!!

    Yvette Wielhouwer Managan – May 06, 2009

    Hi Nonnie. I hope that you had a great time in Pensacola - I remembered that you were going.

    How wonderful for you that your brother visited. It's nice to see a friendly face around here. :)

    Yvette Wielhouwer Managan – May 04, 2009
