Hubby is a crazy fast reader. He can blow through one of my 250-page manuscripts in an hour...less than the amount of time it takes me to drive to the nail salon, get a mani and drive home.
He recently read Becoming Steve Jobs by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli...in about two hours. 435 pages, by the way. What the WHAT?????…

When I was nine, my Mother showed me a video in which a mother created a uterus and ovaries out of pancake batter to show her friend's daughter how menstruation worked. Some of you may be weirded out by this, others of you will have a vague memory of the video and rest of you will be shocked at how many hits come back when you Google "pancake batter menstruation video." (Evidently, lots of people have fond memories of that…Continue

I must admit, if you would have asked me my thoughts on ageing 10 years ago my reply would have been a negative one. And why not!?! Everything I had seen on television, in magazines, conversations with friends, etc. told me that once you get grays & wrinkles your life was pretty much over; you mine as well curl up into a ball and wait to die. Nothing about getting old seemed glamorous. Old people always complain about this breaking, that not working like it used to, etc. Ugh! Who…Continue

It’s not long before the first murder and you know exactly who is behind it. It’s not really a mystery, though the main character has some history she’s afraid to reveal that remains a mystery for a while and that was good. This is a thriller, filled with suspense and realistic characters. The author is a family physician and the book reflects a deep knowledge of the medical field. You feel that the medical details could have leapt right off any medical chart it’s so real and exact. I…Continue

My initial reaction as I began to read Shadow of the Hawk was that the writing was fluid and graceful. The feel, mood and era all reminded me of John Steinbeck and I was hooked from the very start.
Sooze is a 16 year old girl growing up in the Great Depression. She has agreed to marry a man she does not love in order to save her family. She is mature for her age and you immediately feel for her. Her character is equal parts young lady and woman and the author does such…

The writing is graceful and artistic. It’s fluid and organized in through and action. When I first started reading it I thought of my love for John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath. You get that feel of what the Great Depression was like and how families responded to it, and to each other. You feel the desperation and admire the courage and integrity of many of the people of that time.
This story is about a young girl in her teens who considers marrying a man for the…

I was sitting working on my blog and registering for sweepstakes one day during my daughter's quiet time. It's time I get to use to be productive or have a break from the insanity. One particular day, just a few days before Christmas, I was thinking of all the presents I still have left to wrap, and then I began to think about our Elf…

I love wearing ridiculously high heels. You know, the kind that make you cringe in anguish with each step taken after a short while of wear. Regrettably, as I age, my threshold because shorter and shorter.
The pain is never a deterrent for me. Nope, I suffer willingly. I ignore the toe-crushing sensations and the scorching agony that begins in the balls of my feet and shoots up my calves. I suck it up. At barely 5'3, I NEED the shoes. They give me a commanding presence.…Continue

Nowadays, a lot of people are suffering from stress. It is indeed a serious condition often associated with high-blood pressure (and we all know why that is bad), headaches, and fertility problems on the long run. Well, what can I say? God has decided that stress is no good for a baby and won't allow us to have one, unless we minimize the stress in our lives. For this reason, I am here to give you an idea where to start from.…Continue
