My newest book now available on Amazon!

Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

My First Cover! Now available on Amazon – Kindle & Hardcover

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

It Takes Up All My Time

Hi. It’s me. You remember, the keeper of this blog. I know, I know, it’s been awhile. AWHILE. But I work full time now and manage a Koko FitClub here on the Cape and it takes up all of my time. Wait.

I Would Like To Be Trusted

Someone has some good information or product for sale. I purchase it and actually like it and benefit from it. I begin to think this person is really credible as I take some of their advice or use their product and find it really works. Then they persist in ruining my opinion of them by . . . → Read More: I Would Like To Be Trusted

Work=Part of Life

I use Bloglovin’ to follow all the blogs that I’m interested in. That way I don’t miss any posts. Once in awhile Bloglovin’ emails me a list of new blogs I might enjoy. Very rarely do I click on any – they just don’t grab me. Today was different. The post was entitled Six Signs . . . → Read More: Work=Part of Life

Published!

Yesterday my first piece of work was published. This is a special day for any writer. It took four years. This blog was it’s starting point. This blog gave me legs to get in the race.

I Just Wanna…

Every morning I sit with my Belvita biscuits and coffee. I catch up on emails, texts, and a quick perusal of Facebook just to mark sure my friends are okay and still loving their lives.

X is for Extra

Once again I’m taken by surprise that it’s Friday already. (Ironically it’s Sunday – but I did remember the Friday blog hop) Last week I completely missed Friday and it seems so long ago, I can’t even remember why. I do remember the blog hop letter was W and I had some interesting thoughts about . . . → Read More: X is for Extra

T is for Turkey’s

Welcome to this week’s A-Z blog hop. The letter of the week is T, and for me, T is for turkeys.

The wild turkeys have been running rampant on the Cape. It seems like every neighborhood has their own flock and they migrate from yard to yard. I am absolutely amazed when I see . . . → Read More: T is for Turkey’s
