Fireworks and Fun for you in July!
My favorite time of year down the Jersey Shore is the 4th of July! I love
seeing the parades and sitting on the beach watching the fireworks. It's such a
lovely time of year to be able to just hang out, enjoy the weather and friends,
and of course, read a good book while sitting on the beach. Here's a photo for

How did it get to be summer already? Part of my brain is still wondering if I
got everyone Christmas presents like I intended. But the rest of me is fully
enjoying tank tops and stretchy shorts. Iím not as thin as I used to be, but
fortunately, my fashion sense has completely disappeared. Instead of being
shamed by the way I look in shorts and a thin tee, I think about how comfortable Read More...

Happy Friday, friends!
Iíve been struggling this week. Iím attempting and rather poorly to juggle
health-issues, a book deadline, and life in general (time with God, time with my
family, errands, etc.). Itís got me thinking A LOT about balance and
priorities. My husband gave me a book he read ages ago, but Iíd imagine
the majority of you have heard about itĖ Read More...

Summer has roared into the Midwest bringing with it sultry temperatures,
thunderstorms, block buster films (Wonder Woman!!), and a plethora of new books.
Summertime for me, traditionally, has always been about the great books on my
TBR pile that I have to look forward to reading along with new releases. Iíll
never forget my midnight purchase of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
at Borders eons ago.
Lately, Iíve been a Read More...

Ever watched a movie that was so packed full of non-stop action it left you
feeling breathless? Exhilarated, maybeÖ but disconnected from the characters Ė
unable to learn much about them amidst the constant stream of explosions, car
chases and death-defying peril?
Or have you ever read a story where the author droned on Read More...

Writing fiction fell upon me through my own devices of dreams and
things. After some research online where I found the affair of my 19th century,
barely out of her teen years debutante, I thought, I must write this story of
love, disappointment and murder.
I know, I said to myself, Iíll write a book. After all, I had written a chapter
for a history book and been wooed by a Read More...

I'm so excited you stumbled upon this little corner of the ever
changing mystery of writing. The ever eluding story, fiction or nonfiction. I
write about all things questionable and what isn't? Little kids fire questions
that we all asked at one time or another. Everything is a mystery, beginning
with, "Why is the sky blue?" When was the last time you asked that one?
Why is the sky blue Read More...
A few days ago, a friend of mine sent me a political cartoon. She was blithely
unaware that our politics are polar opposites. Usually I ignore her political
commentary, but this cartoon hit a nerve. It insulted President Obama and
glorified Trumpís pussy grabbing comment. I emailed back that she needed to stop
sending me such things because I donít consider sexual attacks funny, and
certainly not ones bragged about by our current Read More...
The writing bug bit me when I decided to create a copy of Albert

Many people use reading as a means to escape reality and step into another life;
one filled with glamour, intrigue, and adventure. The genre doesnít always
matter, it is the authorís ability to transport a reader to another world. Many

The characters roaming in my mind are given names, homes, families, and entire
lives. My heroine can wear a daring midnight Read More...
