Announcing My New Website!

Mar 8, 2022 | Blog Posts, News

Wow, I’m excited you joined us! I must admit, there was a little happy dancing in my office when your name popped up. Sharing your email address (a very big deal to me), lets me know you are looking for…something.

Perhaps you’re interested in bits of inspiration, transformation prompts, or honest and open book reviews? Spoiler alert: on the horizon are monthly blog posts. Blogs may highlight author interviews, podcasts, and new books by yours truly. I’ll never spam you, just alert you when something new is happening.

Maybe you have read A Far Cry…From Home and are looking for support along your grief journey? Understanding what helps others may be the gentle push you need to put one foot in front of the other and tackle a new day. If you are new to A Far Cry…From Home, take a moment to listen to the audio version of the first two chapters:


While cuddling with your children or grandchildren and reading Grammy Do… or Green Snakes on the Ceiling, were you rewarded with a bunch of snuggles, giggles and hugs? Making memories is what it’s all about. Let’s make more of them!

A special shout-out to the talented duo behind the stunning butterfly logo we’re using on the site! The logo was created by Florida artist and Grammy Do… illustrator, Lori Hohmann along with her young granddaughter, Molly. Molly painted the watercolors and Lori’s skillful hand morphed the work into the gorgeous butterfly you see gliding through the pages. Every time I see their artwork, I’m reminded of the skill it takes to render something so beautiful and meaningful.

Thanks again for joining my tribe along this journey of self-discovery, healing, and pushing boundaries. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me.

Thanks for reading!
