The Author


aliceandmolly are sisters. Brave girls. Strong women. Someone once commented, “Like a girl gang but not in a bad way.” They stood together. A cup of tea was comfort. Theirs was a simpler time. Heart ache touched deep. There was laughter, hat pins, and a frying pan. Jewels and oils.

Goal– to write fiction, to blog, to write one worthy sentence. To write moments and memories from life. To find beauty in the ordinary and simple.

Challenge–  to craft a decent story,  to uphold a high standard of truth and beauty, balancing the writings with grace and compassion for the characters and events.

I take liberty with my characters.

  1. Here’s a quote for your site, “It is the allure of an ordinary life that captures attention.”
    You are a writer I love to read. How is memoir going?
    I suppose I will find out as I hop around your pink world:>)
    (My new great niece is Lily Grace…Grace has always been a fave name…trying to dig up a story I wrote years ago about an old woman, Grace, remembering her experiences with Fairies and other wondrous friends.)
    I do go on, don’t I?

    1. Grace and fairies? I would love to read that story! This “Grace” used to spend so many hours building houses, furniture, and traps to catch them in! LOL! Lily Grace could be a character in your story (that you must find). Thanks for the comment, Patt!
      PS~ I enjoy reading your blog as well!

  2. I’ve only just read this moments AFTER my response to your “Tea with Alice” blog post. You are definitely onto a universal and compelling theme. Best of luck, Alice S.

    1. Thank you for the comment. Your site is truly lovely and it fondly evokes beautiful memories.
