A friend just sent me this email about a writing opportunity. It's for 40ish women who have never had a mammogram:


 "My First Mammogram" is the name of a story slated for the next issue of About Health.

Of course, I could ask any writer to create a fictional account, but if possible, I'd prefer to get a real first-time mammogram-goer to share her genuine reactions to the experience. Do you know of any writers (would be in the 40-year-old range) who are about to have their first mammogram in the next month or so, and wouldn't mind sharing their honest expectations and experiences for the benefit of others?

About Health is a syndicated publication created by McMurry and produced for hospital clients throughout the U.S. and Canada. With an optimistic/informative tone, About Health's content empowers readers to make lifestyle changes to ultimately reduce their risk for various conditions.

I am looking to assign the story this week and it would be due Jan. 10. However, I could arrange some flexibility for the right situation.

Please let me know if you know of anyone who might be interested!

Debbie, the link works for me. But here is the full URL to the trailer, in case your computer is not speaking with Tiny URL.com  (:

I have a mid-grade adventure for boys coming out soon, and I just finished a BOOK TRAILER for it. The title is "Taconi and Clause - Double Trouble." Please take a look and let me know what you think The story is set in the Aussie outback, on a cattle station, and has mysterious Dreamtime Spirits, a chatty cockatoo, danger, a looming man ceremony, and lots of the action and fun boys love:

Linda--You are so sweet to post about the blog! Thank you so much.

You made me crack up with the Baker's Clay sampling! You really don't need any more sick kids right now. I don't know how you've been keeping all your irons in the fire recently. Some days it feels like I'm barely keeping up.

Yes, college is a challenge for any parent, but with medical needs, it's a little harder. It helped that Katie took a trip to South America two years ago, and both of us survived (she had no refrigeration for her insulin on the trip). So college in a dorm (with a fridge) seems a little more civilized. Nevertheless, I'm counting the hours till we pick her up on Sunday.
