The Author

“Alice” was my Grandmother and “Molly,” her sister. This site is a tribute to them. Humble, yet, proud they made a life for themselves, far from England. Someone once commented, “Like a girl gang but not in a bad way.” Theirs was a simpler time. There was quiet laughter, mystery, whispered words, hat pins, and a frying pan. Poetry was clipped from newspapers and glued into bound books. Alice owned a Pug named “Tipsy.” The sisters were resilient.

aliceandmolly represents anyone who inspires others and chooses to live a gentle and beautiful life. It offers stories, words, and simple, affordable ideas. It isn’t perfect. It’s often found.

Goal-~to write fiction, to blog, to write one worthy sentence. To write moments and memories from life. To find beauty in the ordinary. To share all that inspires me to be a better human. To inspire others to find beauty in the everyday.

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

In Progress~  writing course/s @ university 2012/13 – attending sponsored workshops, Writer’s Events – former member of two writer’s circles for education, mentoring support and critique review, current member of a monthly Book Club.

Website is in progress and may change to incorporate more of a Home Journal format.

  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!
      Best,
      Lynne/Grace

  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.
