I was lucky enough to be invited to be on Kevin Willett's TV program, Business as Usual. I met Kevin on Facebook when I responded to a video he shared. I started following his page because the topics he was discussing resonated with me. One day, he mentioned that he had a TV show, and … Continue reading A friend of Kevin
I have always loved the library since I was a little girl. My dad would drive me every week and I would load up my arms with as many books as I could carry, and then stack them all around my bed when I got home, deciding which one to read first. I was beyond … Continue reading A dream come true
UPDATE! The paperback edition is once again available at amazon.com! Thank you for your patience! So, due to an editing glitch, the paperback version of my new novel, What if Bebe Stays with Steven? is temporarily unavailable in paperback on Amazon.com. It is available on Kindle right now. Within the next 24 hours or so … Continue reading Where did it go?
My new book started out as something else. I published my first novel, One Brave Thing, last year. Over the course of the year of doing talks and readings, I thought a lot about my characters and the story. One day, I had the thought: What if Bebe stays with Steven? How would her life have … Continue reading My new book
I was trolling Facebook recently, after working on the next "The BRAVE Interview" for my blog (coming in March, 2017). I must be primed to see the word 'brave'. You know, like when you're pregnant and suddenly you see pregnant women everywhere? So I couldn't help but notice this page with Being Brave with Abbie McG emblazoned … Continue reading Being BRAVE is catchy!
I was at the gym on the bike for the first time in two weeks (don't judge me). I was hoping to be motivated to pedal a little longer through the time-honored hack of distraction. I was looking forward to listening to a Women Taking the Lead podcast, Number 201 with Dana Malstaff, and now … Continue reading Aha!
I have been working feverishly, madly, to design the cover of my new novel. My publication date is 3/21 (as in: 3-2-1 liftoff! 🙂 ) and I am determined to make it. I originally planned to use my own photos for the cover, but then I started looking around on Canva, you know, just for fun, … Continue reading Doing the thing
I have heard of Ann Patchett before, of course, but I had never read any of her work. Full disclosure: I did try to read Bel Canto once. I have no idea why I didn’t actually finish it. Or start it. I forget. Anyway, my friend and yoga teacher, Kristen, mentioned a book casually in … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett
I am sitting here on the couch trying to write a 'signature talk', which would be so much (expletive) easier if I could just decide on one topic, already! I am trying to figure out how to combine my metaphysical nurse blog with my kwrites blog under one domain, a version of my name, which … Continue reading Be still
I loved this story about Vivian and Michael, who have known each other most of their lives, but have been apart for a period of time and as the book opens, they are just coming back together. They love each other, but have not admitted this to each other. Heck, they have barely admitted it … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Vineyards of Allegretti by Jennifer Davies
