Pandemic 2020

The pandemic is still raging on and it’s July 2020. We all should have known something bad was coming when Trump stopped air traffic from Europe months ago. I don’t think any of us expected this. Life is on hold as we know it and I wonder what the fall brings. I pray for only…

It’s Official!

Yes, it’s official. I signed with Jessica Alvarez at Bookends Literary Agency to take my career to the next level.   I wasn’t sure if this would happen with Covid-19 pausing everything, but it did, and I’m super stoked.

Unusual Times

The world as we knew it is over–at least temporarily. We’ve all been dealing with Covid-19 in various ways in these unusual times.

NAET and California Madams

Last time I posted about a possible SALs reaction and having found an acupuncturist and NAET specialist. I’ve had three treatments so far and other than slowly getting my sense of smell back I don’t see any difference. But then again I haven’t been tempting fate by eating foods that could trigger a reaction. During…

Light Bulb Moment, Perhaps?

Let me start my saying that while it seems I’ve been doing very little writing and work on my books, I have been doing research. As most authors will tell you, that’s where we get into trouble. I love doing research as much as I do writing and that why we have deadlines or we’d…
