I’m in awe. Sweet staccato sounds emanate from your fingers as you wave them so magically above your violin. Your face is scrunched in the same concentration you used to have when you would try to remember what show you…Continue

As we watch from the comfort of our homes with our families we need to think. Think about this same type event happening in your community. We need to ask ourselves these questions.
What would be the first thing you would do? Who would you try to get in touch with?
How would you feel if you could not reach that special someone? Can you imagine not having any clothes to wear except the ones you have on? Can you imagine being thirsty and not having anything to drink, not even…Continue

To follow up on my last post made in honor of International Women's History Day and Women's Appreciation Month, I'm sharing another story from a celebrated author inspired by other celebrated authors. I had the opportunity to ask the quick, energetic, prolific and super-creative Cynthia Eden about the women who inspire her in her own writing. Here's what she said:
"When I think of famous women who have inspired me, I immediately picture Clara Barton. In my mind, I can see her…Continue

You see, I had planned to make a big deal of it when I passed the 10,000 mark, you know, balloons, go out to dinner, celebrate. Then today, when I needed a break from writing, that thing writers do to procrastinate, I added up my sales to date and discovered I had passed the mark some days ago. I confess I had my sixty seconds when I thought, OMG, 10,000 people like me/ahem I mean 10,000 people like my book, but pretty quickly I realized this number had a much deeper meaning to…Continue

I knew any motivation I might have to get dressed and go to the gym was slowly fading away. I needed to do something to cheer me up a little, and to keep me from commuting back to my bedroom and crawling…Continue
