In the back yard of his Walkersville home, Ray Matlock sits in a gazebo as two Siamese cats spar. They'll be all right, he says. They make him smile, even today. The midday is perfectly weathered: a sneak of full fall in the air, football weather. Matlock wears a Ravens visor and talks so softly you wonder if he is always this soft-spoken, or whether the death of his boy has knocked the words out of him. A 1968 Oldsmobile is in the garage; his son had restored the classic. The car is a surviving point of pride.

The cruise out of Baltimore to the eastern Caribbean included a stop in Puerto Rico. Good news: Our side trip was to the rain forest in the center of the island. Bad news: The tour bus broke down just beyond the visitors' center. Having hiked the last mile to the center of the island, we faced a wait until a relief bus would arrive. My philosophy with a camera has always been to look up, look down and look under for unique shots. This photo, backlit by the sun, is of a leaf from one of the rain forest's hundreds of ferns.

Her tips for young writers have been developed during an 18-year career that includes adventure stories with a time-travel twist to places in Maryland's past.

Margaret MeachamMargaret Meacham isn't nearly as concerned about her critics as she is about another group of ruthlessly honest readers: her own kids.For this children's book author, the opinions of 11-year-old Peter, 8-year-old Jenny and 5-year-old Katy often matter more than what adult reviewers may have to say about her three novels -- the latest of which, "The Secret of Heron Creek," is due out next month."Children really look for truth," says Ms. Meacham, 38, who lives in Brooklandville.
