Fear

A hunch? Or an emotion? What’s the difference? May 25, 2015

In preparation for my radio campaign to promote Finding Zoe I found myself preparing to answer that question. Many of the characters in the story had a gut feeling about Zoe—and acted on it—and as a result, she was led home. They had lots of emotions, as well, as we all do. So how is […]

On the road with Finding Zoe. April 28, 2015

My heart was so opened. Watching Zoe play football with her birth father BJ, whom she hadn’t seen in eight years, see her birth mom, Jess, whom she also hadn’t seen in years, and watching her meet her half-sister Adelynne for the very first time. She saw her loving foster mother, Lois, who signed to her […]

The sweetest fruits of success. February 01, 2015

I’ve turned down a bunch of projects lately. Small ones and larger ones. I could use the income, certainly, but between my efforts with promoting my latest book Finding Zoe and some personal things I have going on, I hear a resounding internal NO every time I consider taking on a new project. My husband has been consumed with […]

How to improve self-worth. March 21, 2014

A true sign of self-worth and self-acceptance? Feeling good enough to be on camera without any make-up. This issue arose for several of us on a recent Google+ HOA (Hangout on Air)—a live show, but one that most people would watch as a rerun.  I, fairly new to this technology, didn’t realize that a simple […]

Laugh fear in the face? I finally get it. January 31, 2014

When we’re living outside our comfort zone and up to big things those negative voices in our heads can just go bananas. Fear can set in like rigor mortis, paralyzing us. This happens to me sometimes. My voices scream so loud that it isn’t even funny. But actually, it is funny, and this is my […]

Learning to love and accept yourself—really. December 20, 2013

I was driving to Boston the other day, and instead of it taking me the usual thirty-five minutes it took me over two hours. The traffic was insane. Sitting in the car was torture; however, I noticed that I was deriving some sort of perverse pleasure from imagining how I would complain about it when […]

Trust your inner voice when writing (or not). December 05, 2013

I haven’t written anything in days and am feeling a little antsy. Surely, things are happening that I want to write about—need to write about. But it just isn’t time. That feeling when you pluck the words out of the air that belong to you only, that  are waiting to come through you. Surely, the […]

Let it go, this too shall pass. November 20, 2013

A few years ago our family went through some real difficulties. My husband lost his job, and I wasn’t bringing in much money, so our savings were going fast. Yes, it was freak out time!! We were also dealing with some medical issues, while looking for new medical insurance. All of this really put a […]

Be still and know: Time management tip extraordinaire. November 11, 2013

This morning, I was sitting on my bed thinking about my “to do” list. I had sat down to meditate for a few minutes—something I try doing every morning. But the “pull” the list had on me was very seductive. There weren’t any words just this incredible desire to quit all this meditative nonsense and […]

How to accept yourself as a good parent, and trust. October 27, 2013

The other day my husband and I discovered some candy stashed away in our son’s desk drawer. He knows he’s not allowed to keep candy in his room (which is obviously why he was hiding it). We dug a little more, and found a bunch of empty candy wrappers, some gum, and a few lollypops. […]
