What a difference a few months make! Like everyone else, I have been dealing with some major changes to adjust to this new pandemic. One good thing, however, has been my ability to write! I have published a new picture book during the pandemic, and I am working on another plus working on a novel. I wish everyone good health and a safe summer. We will get through this!

At the start of this decade, I knew my goal was to write and publish. It took me until the last year of the decade to get published, but I made it!
I have been writing all decade, admittedly, but the publishing journey finally began for me when I took up the reigns of self-publishing. In this year, I have published 4 picture books and one novel.
I am so grateful to finally be a published author, and my goal of the next d...Read Full Post »

It was finally my Super Kitty who inspired me to write and publish a picture book. She'd been battling cancer for nearly a year and died just before I got the book published. It's a bitter sweet publication, but I know my Super Kitty can still teach everyone what it means to be strong. She lost a limb but never let it slow her down. She went through chemo treatments like they were just a normal part of her day. The more she got sick, the more she coped. She was never thrown off...Read Full Post »

Finally, after clinging to the last 80 degree days, it is time to embrace autumn. I accept it reluctantly, but the truth is, I do like fall. I love the colorful foliage and the pumpkin-spiced lattes, the apple picking and post-season baseball. I love Halloween, celebrating with spooky movies and costumes.
I guess autumn just gets a bad rap because it signals that winter is coming. The months get darker and colder, and we all know how bad a New England winter can be. I supp...Read Full Post »

While thinking about hurricanes swirling around loved ones elsewhere, a bunch of writers got together at the Fiction Fest conference in Norwalk, Connecticut. I am back home, exhausted, and so glad to have been a part of this! The writers are awesome and inspiring and so willing to give advice and tips to anyone who asks. They are wells of helpful information. I wonder how they can do it all—work, family, taking care of the everyday house and cooking and health and ...Read Full Post »

I hope everyone is having a spectacular summer! My best news is that I have finished writing the manuscript for my first novel! Meg Cabot recommends Jeff Herman's Guide to Bok Publishers, Editors & Literary Agents. I have this one, and I have also been scouring the internet in hot pursuit of just the right home for my book!
I definitely recommend summer as a time for writing and reading, so relax, get your fe...Read Full Post »
