It’s all part of the modern condition, more and more of us want to live on our own driving property prices up and the amount of square footage you can get for your money down. It might take a pinch more imagination and a dash of careful design, but living in a small house or flat doesn’t mean that you can’t live in style!
We all know that the eye and with it people’s perceptions can be fooled. There are a couple of surprisingly simple techniques…Continue

In anticipation of writing this blog post for BEHIND THE BOOK, I immediately sat down and wrote a whole craft essay instead. More of a memoir, actually. About waitressing. It really did apply, at least to much of this process. I wrote about being “in the weeds,” an old restaurant workers’ term for being too busy to…Continue

I recently read a blog post about how important it is to teach toddlers about their body parts. Apparently, simply knowing the correct words for male and female genitals deters predators who know that these children will be more able to report being touched inappropriately.
Cut to me sweating profusely. My daughter is almost four, and unless ‘front hiney’ and ‘back hiney’ are the…Continue
Signing books at Barnes and Noble in Bakersfield on Saturday was not a champagne affair, it was business. The friendly staff prepared a book table for me and told me I could sit behind the table, stand and do a meet and greet (my style) or…Continue

“Hearing him talk about his mother, about his intact family, makes my chest hurt for a second, like someone pierced it with a needle.”
― Veronica Roth
The thing about Mother’s Day is everyone’s relationship with their mother is in our face. Our nose is rubbed in “intact relationships” and it can hurt to know that we don’t have that. When we…Continue

“Women without children are also the best of mothers, often, with the patience, interest, and saving grace that the constant relationship with children cannot always sustain.

A child is fortunate who feels witnessed as a person, outside relationships with parents by another adult.” ― Louise Erdrich

I was a child who hadn’t been loved, and who had had no family relations of love and intimacy. So I probably thought to myself that, finally, I was going to have a child and would have this wonderful unconditional loving relationship.
But this child was his mother’s victim, I was a totally incompetent mother, because I, myself, was an abused child from a problematic…Continue
