Thank you for all the great content here on this thread. I always find valuable connections and ideas here.

In the past few weeks two pieces of mine have been published on other sites.

The Mid ran My Mother and the lessons that never fade here.

And our own Tania Pryputniewicz of Mother, Writer, Mentor posted a selection from my manuscript titled, Passing the Tampon here.

I also run a blog series on my site about mothering and creativity. The submission guidelines are here.

Thank you!

It's out! My mother-daughter memoir, Maternal Threads, was released 05.01.15 from High Hill Press. It wasn't until I was 52 and had raised twin boys and a spitfire of a daughter before I realized what was missing from my life: my maternal heritage. Exploring my mother's side of my ancestry, I uncovered some secrets, learned lots about the flapper era in NYC, and finally felt as though I knew myself. It's available on Amazon & B&N. There's a book trailer here:

If anyone struggles with the death of a mother,  my poetry collection,  "Motherlung," published by Salmon Poetry,  will offer hope through the difficult terrain of grief.  In a raw and real way,  this autobiographical collection of poetry written during my mother's diagnosis with lung cancer and after her passing,  has been said to be a soothing balm to the hurting.  Contact me at my website for ordering information or go to

Thank you!

I am so excited to announce the US release of my new book, Parenting in the Here and Now (Floris Books).  Lisa Groen, author of  The Mother's Book of Well-Being, wrote: "Lea Page points parents to a gentler path in her book Parenting in the Here and Now. Page urges parents to face their fear and transform it to courage, a skill that allows presence of heart and mind for the most important job on the planet--ushering children into adulthood."  It is available from Amazon, BAM, B&N and directly from the publisher. Please see my website for links and for other reviews, articles and interviews:

"I'm using Pinterest for many things like pinning my interests/hobbies (manga, anime, Asian dramas), inspiring reading and writing quotes. But I also have two behind the book-creation inspiration boards for my work in progress novels."
