I'm on a roll

Now Available!

I am proud to announce that one of my poems has been published in this book published by Silver Boomer Books. I really did not want to contribute because I am not a widow. I thought I might jinx myself. Then, one night last winter Bill had to babysit grandkids and was away overnight for the first time in 20 years. I can't tell you how much I missed him. His presence and reminders were all around the bedroom...and a poem evolved.

Do you know of someone who has lost a spouse? This would be a great book because it is filled with uplifting stories about survival after widowhood. The messages are hopeful and empowering.



RELEASE DATE: Tomorrow, and in bookstores Oct. 16th

My story, Finding God's Message in the Sand is about my pleading and praying as I walked a beach. At sunrise I came upon a lone woman writing in a prayer journal...an answer to my prayers when she chased after me and prayed for me.

I hope you will purchase this book and spread the inpsirational messages, not just my own.




My story is about believing in myself, even though the message I believed was a complete fallacy. True! It helped me get to where I am today.

Check out the wonderful stories in this book.


I also have received a contract from Mozark Press, Bad Hair Day Anthology.

I am also working closely with the editor and creator of Stepping Up: Stories of Blended Families on one of my stories she is interested in publishing.

I am now writing ...hold your breath...drumroll...FICTION, and having so much fun.


My submission for Fifty Shades of Santa (no R-rated or X-rated material) has been one of the most fun pieces I have ever written. I am practicing my classroom motto: Never say, "I can't!" Say, "I can try!"

It is good to stretch your creative muscles and write cross-genre. Please, be kind and pass this information to others. Thank you for your continuous comments and support. Hugs to all of you.
