Ever get an email and think, I need to respond to that – but not right now? So you wait until you have time to really write a good response. Days pass, then weeks, maybe even months. And by then you are a little embarrassed to respond because it’s been so long. That is how I feel about not writing blog posts. I’m sorry for disappearing. I kept thinking, oh I need to get back to it- but never did. The holidays took up a lot of my time and energy. Then health issues. But now, I am ready to […]
I will have signed copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Inner Strength at the Chandler Author/Art Walk this Friday, November 21st. The event is running from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM. If you are local, then I would love it if you stopped by and said hi. You don’t even have to buy a book. I am a little nervous about doing this signing. I don’t know why. But I am excited as well. I will definitely be posting a pic or two from the event. I hope to see you there!
But it does buy food, shelter, and pays for medical bills. Why am I talking about money? Because two freelance writer friends, Lisa Mason and Lyn Lomasi have had some unexpected money problems that could leave them homeless. Now, being a writer is not a lucrative business.

It is called Thirteen Stories by Us and has thriller/suspense/horror/humor stories. It is priced at only $2.99 and every single penny […]
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Inner Strength is out at bookstores and Amazon! Woo hoo. I am so excited to be a part of this book. My story, Hope Beats ALL, is on page 45 and I am mentioned in the introduction! I can’t believe something I’ve written is in a real book store! I went to Barnes and Noble and took these pics. I suck at selfies but there wasn’t anyone around to take one of me by the books. I will be doing a signing at Downtown Chandler’s Art and Author Walk on November 21st from […]
This was going to be a whole different post. I received my copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Inner Strength this week and was all set to write a happy post about it. However, yesterday a first grader in my community passed from an unknown respiratory ailment. They are testing for Enterovirus. Luke was at school on Friday and by Tuesday was gone. I can’t even imagine the suffering his family is feeling. The community is raising funds for the family. Olive Wood Designs will be doing an auction with 100% of the proceeds going to the […]
