Crisis

Hello everyone. Due to a family emergency, I have been forced to put my novel on the back burner. My son is in the hospital due to a mental breakdown that almost took him away from me for good. Ordinarily, I would not discuss something so personal but I will talk about it without giving…

Happy New Year 2023

Hello everyone and Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas last week and was able to spend time with the people you love. For all of those who were not able to do that because of the snowstorm, I feel for you. This holiday has been rough for a lot of people…

What It’s Like for Me to Write Science Fiction

Hey everyone. I know what you all are thinking from reading the headline. “Oh Lord, she’s going to ruin sci-fi lol.” And you know what, I probably will. If I fail at it, at least I tried. It’s much too late to turn my work in progress into a regular story now. Too much would…

Healing

Happy Sunday everyone. It’s been a rough couple of weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. I was rushed to the ER last week due to excruciating pain from a hernia in my stomach that had become so bad that it would have become life-threatening if I had not had surgery. So, they operated the next day…

Happy Halloween!

Hey everyone. Tomorrow is Halloween and I’m using this opportunity to stock up on candy. Not for the trick-or-treaters but for us. We are huge lovers of all things chocolate.

My Life is a work still in Progress

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! This was always one of my favorite holidays because mothers always go beyond the call of duty to do things for their kids. It’s our day to shine. The best job I’ve ever had was being a mom to my son Christopher. My mom and I have always been very close,…
