March Author Birthday Some of us are Trekkies; you know those nerdy folks who love all things Star Trek. And yes, don’t be alarmed, Star Wars is kind of a religion at our house.

When you think about traveling in the United States you are not so concerned about what to do if one of the children get sick, you have a flat tire or perhaps you are involved in some kind of accident. We know to contact AAA or call 911, go to Urgent Care, an emergency room, [..Read more]

The holidays side-tracked the adventure in Africa. I posted about the holidays just like everyone else on the planet. I don’t know about you but by January I’m looking at the Hallmark Channel like it’s Satan spawn. Keep in mind this is coming from someone whose favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard with Bruce Willis.

If you are like me, after Christmas my wallet is pretty empty and all those sales just keep calling me. I figured you were the same way. Most of my money went for gifts for my family and treats for the big day. Each year I like to reward myself with a little something for [..Read more]

Today is the last time I’ll post about the dreams of authors. These authors are award winners, go-getters, funny, world travelers, workshop presenters, teachers, nurses, country music singers and one publisher! Whew. They offer me support when I doubt myself or my decision to take the writing journey I chose several years ago. I’m so [..Read more]

Authors are dreamers. Our imaginations hold us hostage, keeping sleep at bay when most people are turning their brains off. Our characters talk to us while we’re driving, working and sitting in church. Although most us never become financially independent or a household name with our work, it doesn’t stop us from creating future worlds [..Read more]
