Find the bright side! Here’s a new flip. Not mine—but it’s a true story. Someone (not naming) was all ready to go somewhere today, and when she got in the car, the battery was dead. She posted that on Facebook and a friend replied—”I’d rather have a dead battery and have money to buy a new one than not have enough money to buy a car in the first place.” This was followed by a smiley face and then another comment. “There’s always a bright side.”
The Deadly Scale
Here’s a flip. Hope I can hold onto it! Got on the scale this morning, like I always do. Like I expect the Fat Fairy to come overnight and devour the flab. Anyway, I looked at the number on the scale, not higher, not lower, same old, same old. And down in the dumps I went. Then I took my own advice and flipped it. I could be starving, that’s good. If I was stranded with a group of people who had nothing to eat, I’d be the last to die! And of course, the one that makes the best sense, I can control that number, so get with the program, girl.
Ya’ll Come on Down
Top 5 Florida State Park Springs. Many of these springs are near me. They are stunning. I love our little piece of paradise tucked away from all the hustle and bustle! Click the link below for a look at some of the beautiful springs. If you have visited, which was your favorite? Do you have other favorite state parks?
Here’s a peek at some of the gorgeous springs.
When I read about Akiane Kramarik (written about in my blog) I began doing some investigation into what an Indigo child is. Poke around the Internet, Google Indigo child.
I am interested in what you think about Indigo children. Leave me a comment.

When I Knew What I Wanted to Do
There was a sliver of time in my life, only 45 minutes or an hour, that defined an important goal for my future. It was when James Michener visited my high school, and I had just finished reading his book, HAWAII. I had devoured it. The way Michener crafted his sentences, his finesse with description, his word choice, had dazzled me. So, when he walked on the auditorium stage and took the microphone, I was in awe. He was the perfect example of the cliche larger than life. The man seemed to own and eat up every inch of that stage. I clung to each word that came from his mouth. It was then I knew what I what I wanted to do one day. I wanted to be a writer. That didn’t happen until many years later when I had gotten to the point that I ached to fulfill my dream. I shuffled my priorities and took myself seriously. And finally, the magic happened. I became an author.
Welcome to Talk to Me
TALK TO ME is a place for us to connect. This is just like sitting down on a couch with a glass of wine and chatting. Let’s get to know each other and what your thoughts and ideas are about my books and me.
Everyone needs a proper introduction to start a conversation, so I may pose questions like:
Who you would like to play the part of a particular character in a movie?
Was there a scene that hit home with you?
I need a name suggestion for a new female character. She is a little rough around the edges but has a heart of gold. Any name suggestions?
