Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

I lived thirty plus years in Florida and in the same city where I was born. I even went to college in Central Florida. It was all I ever knew. I figured that I’d grow old and die there, but then something happened. Something in me changed. Read more →

Connecting without a Facebook Fan Page

Not long ago there was this social media site called Facebook that was really cool. People from all around the world could “talk” to each other. They could share pictures and stories about their lives. It was an author’s dream. Then this social media site changed. Posts and pictures seemed to get lost in some land of oblivion unless $ was spent. This author (points to self) began noticing dwindling interaction. No one was commenting. No one was seeing posts.

I’d twirl on my wheels, thinking I was the next Dorothy Hamil. I’m sure I looked better in my head than I did in real life. But when you’re a kid, you think you’re the best at everything you do. And really, you don’t care. Read more →

Why I write

When I was a little girl, I would let my imagination run wild. I’d come up with grandiose tales (some heavily influenced by my strange addiction to soap operas) and play Barbies, reenacting the stories I had in my head.
