The Balance Between Mom and Writer

I started writing when my kids were five, two, and a newborn, and I was starting my first year of homeschool. My husband was in college and worked at night. We were poor. LOL. I started writing during naptime, but by the time I started getting book contracts, my kids were too old for naps, we still homeschooled, and my kids were home all day. So for years I wrote when they were around the house—usually in the afternoon. I {Read More}

Sitting by the woodstove, eating homemade enchiladas, and opening a large pile of presents. I grew up in a small, mill town of Weed, California. All my favorite childhood memories are centered there.

Writing a True Story of Depression and Hope

  Writing a True Story of Depression and Hope   Like everyone else, I was heartbroken to hear about the death of Robin Williams. I remember first falling in love with him when he played Mork on Mork and Mindy. I remember playing with the other kids in 5th grade saying, “Na-Nu Na-Nu.” Hearing of his death was hard enough, but to find out he died by suicide made my heart ache.   For many years I didn’t understand the pain {Read More}
