Just a little note here, because I had time today on my training bike watching Dr. Oz and learning how to order good things in a restaurant that won’t blow my diet off the map. So the thing is that like most people, I’m guessing, exercise gives me mental fuel to be me. Today was hard. […]
When things line up in my life, they really line up. I decided in my fever of New Year’s resolutions to take things up a notch and enroll in courses to improve my overall prowess as an author. Enter Blogging 101 and Business Marketing on the Internet. I made it through week one and the […]
No matter how old we get we all remember what it was like to be a child. Most of my memories start around the time I was about 8 years old and have that golden glow because I trusted everyone and everything. At about 10 years old, I started reading just about as much as I was […]
Who am I? I’m a writer, author and publisher of the Mabel Hartley ebook young adult fiction series. Writing is the thing I love best, the thing that makes time stand still. When I’m writing, it’s like I’m not in my body anymore. If someone asks me a question, I can’t hear them. It’s always […]
Readers, I want to thank you all for taking a journey (or maybe two) with Mabel Hartley this year. It truly has been a banner year for Mabel and me, with the completion of Volume 3 in the series, awaiting a line edit, and ready for publishing in Spring 2016. What a year I’ve had. […]

I have spent the last three months taking time each day (ok, about 40 minutes), once the kids are off to school to sit and listen to a guided meditation CD. I have to tell you, it’s making all the difference. I used to constantly feel overwhelmed and especially when I felt tired, it was almost […]
Nothing like coming home from a fabulous trip to NYC and then finding that a cold and flu has overcome my little body!!! I am stuffed up, surrendering to the eternal flow of my nose BUT in the midst of all this sneezing and suffering, I did manage a trip to the bookstore (sorry people for […]
Nice to put my feet up with a book by Anthony Doerr. Let’s just say I am a big fan. I think he’s one of the best fiction writer’s on the planet and picking up one of his books is a treat. I read Memory Wall a few years ago, also by Doerr and that […]
I feel like setting off fireworks, standing under confetti, or at least popping a bottle of champagne….but seeing as I have NONE of these on hand, I can only say hooray! And thanks for stopping in once in a while to see what’s going on in my world. Happy 100, baby!
