I noticed something after I had children. Before I became a mom, my own birthdays were a big deal. The milestones: turning 13, Sweet 16, 18, 21 and…well, 21 is really the last big milestone, unless you count 25 and a decrease in insurance rates. But one of my children has a birthday around this time of year and this […]

A typical day in my house

Some people think that we writers have exotic lives. I know one person personally who once imagined that we sat on beaches somewhere, laptops on thighs and tropical drinks at our sides, to write. Not so. Decidedly not so. In fact, allow me to prove just how unlike my life that is. As I’ve mentioned before, in addition to working […]

Anyway, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to have some sales, both on paperback and ebook versions of my books. Now, none of these sales will apply […]

And some of you found it hard to believe, as well. But I promise you – it’s true! I am not your stereotypical woman who has 600 pairs of shoes, categorized […]
