You may be reading this on your phone in the bathroom, taking your 3 minutes of “alone” time to catch up on the world around you. You may be sneaking a peek at the park or at a red light, taking a chance to feel connected to another adult in some small…Continue

When I asked my son what he wanted to save up his allowance for, he told me he wanted to buy a tablet. When I asked him why, he listed all the games he could play on it that he couldn't play on his LeapPad.…Continue

Anne K. Edwards enjoys reading as well as writing and would be hard put to choose one over the other since her love affair with the printed word started with reading at age six. When she found she could write stories as a third grader, she found a certain sense of self-fulfillment that lonely kids often miss. That love…Continue

April Fools Day pranks and tricks can be great fun. I've always loved April Fools Day - lots of harmless fun and giggles. Pranking my husband takes a little more planning, but the kids are just too easy to trick and they always reward me with squeals of laughter! They also like to get involved and with my help, they play tricks on each other.
I've compiled a list of my favorite kids pranks. I've tried most of these on my own kids and can guarantee many laughs! Maybe a couple of…Continue

Our kids are growing up in this culture, which is important for their health. I don’t worry about childhood obesity when it comes to my children, because we lead an active and healthy lifestyle. And it feels great!…Continue

I love spinning tales of romance in the Silicon Valley setting. I'm told I seriously over-glamorize the lifestyles of my heroes and heroines but whatever. I write FICTION so isn't that kind of a requirement? I mean, I have to keep things interesting. right? <wink, wink="">
As an entrepreneur, I am fascinated with goings-on in the Valley. There's such an aura over Sand Hill Road; it's just bubbling over with innovation, creativity and energy. Being part of that atmosphere,…Continue

Spicy falafels make a nice meat free addition to a summery salad, are great stuffed into pitta breads with shredded carrots and cabbage and drizzled in a yogurt dressing or just as a snack served with a spicy chilli jam dip or BBQ sauce.

Here's why I don't like Batman: He has Alfred. Because Bruce Wayne is well off, he doesn't have to sort his own socks or cook his own meals or really do any chores. He is a horrible role model for my son.
I like Spiderman. Peter Parker has to get good grades, maintain an after-school job, save the world and…
