What Health And Safety Risks Do Birthing Livestock Pose To Pregnant Women?

Some personal injury claims involve pregnant women who have come into contact with animals, such as sheep or other livestock, that are giving birth or have just given birth. These animals can carry infections, which can put the health and safety of pregnant women and their unborn children at risk.

Accordingly, a number of organisations, including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Public Health England, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the…

Announcing my First 'Free' Day

I wanted to write a little post here about my first two weeks as an accomplished self-published author. First I will start by saying the feeling of accomplishment after working diligently to get my book out into the world in the past six months is exhilarating. Secondly, I will openly state that writing the book was the most fun part and if you think editing and revisions and book covers and…

Horseshit, elections, and drive-by idiots

 

 

I was thinking of horseshit this morning. Back in Portugal when I was a child there was plenty of horseshit on the streets from mules walking old farmers home after a long day.  Today I almost felt like I could smell it.

 

I am in America now, in a town made safe by politicians and law enforcement.  Children were crossing the torn up streets, blocked off on all ends by police barriers today, because tomorrow will emerge better streets, and better roads mean…

Outing Yourself: Because People Aren't Meant to Live in Closets

Anyone paying attention (meaning my husband) would notice I have revamped my website. This meant I needed content. So I started writing copy for my home page, and before I knew it, I had outed myself as a person with a disability. I had written about my Fibromyalgia before in an obscure feminist magazine, LOUDmouth, but coming out on my website is another story.

Maybe…

BOOMERS -- THE "SANDWICH GENERATION"

Do you know why boomers are called the “Sandwich Generation?”  It’s because we are caught in the middle of having to care for our elderly parents as well as be grandparents to our grandchildren. Many of us are dealing with our own health issues which, at times seems to be pushed into the background because the needs of our parents comes first.  I just want you to know you’re not alone.  There are approximately 78 million baby boomers, many of whom are dealing with your same issues.  And the…

Taos! Taos! Taos!

Taos loves writers and I rode on a cloud of enthusiasm for my signing and reading at the Somos Salon: Society of the Muse of the Southwest. I was thrilled when Kristina Ortez de Jones, the executive director of Somos invited me to their salon. She smoothed the way and the readers who came to play the Scene Read Game with me had great questions. One even encouraged me to write a story based on historic happenings in Taos.

Be Smart not Taken: Red Flags to Heed When Seeking Self-Publishing Providers

I received a call several months ago from a potential client who wanted to discuss a possible “redo” of his book. The person who designed it claimed to know what he was doing; and editing … well, let’s just say there was virtually none. Worst of all, it was already listed on Amazon.



Upon meeting in person and seeing the book for myself, I was crestfallen that what this author had deemed acceptable—because I suppose he didn’t know any better—was nothing more than a bound first…

Late Summer Treats Made in our Kitchen

August is the month for biting into juicy ripe fruit plucked straight from the tree or bush. Peaches and blackberries also make delicious cereal toppings or ingredients in fruit smoothies. Today I decided that I would use my WordPress blog to promote my book by displaying pictures of fruit that my daughter and I have featured in recipes. Those recipes appear at the end of my gardening book, The…

Superman Vs. Lex Luthor: Save The Lube!

I woke up this morning and realized I wanted to be Superman. I wanted to have a dangerous adventure that involved the fate of lubrication and ended in making Lex Luthor my bitch. Thanks to a blank screen, I could and did all of that before I finished my first cup of coffee.
I won’t be sharing my naughty piece of gay fanfic, yet, but the piece got me thinking about character development, research, and writing in general.
What I love most about writing in general is the…
