For the Love of Me

Hello everyone,

Life is always setting groundhog holes in front of us. Usually, we see them and we navigate around them. Sometimes we get our foot stuck and wonder what's going to bite us before we can get out. As long as we don't waste too much time worrying, we usually get out before there is any damage.

I know that is a weird analogy to life, but hey, I live on the mountain where there are a lot of groundhog holes. :)

Sometimes it seems as if everything is piling up around us and we are buried in a quagmire of our own making. It drags us down with its enormous weight.

I used to do a lot of meditation, but I thought I was beyond that. I've begun to go back to it. I needed to find balance and peace in me.

I once told my husband, long before we were married, that I couldn't give him me unless I could have me first.

Once I could be able to live with myself, I was able to live with him. It took a lot of me to get to that spot. I did a lot of inner searching and I learned that I liked who I was.

I haven't written in a month, thinking that I was lost without my mom. I miss her, but once I again, I realized that I can go on.

I am okay.

I am writing again and trying to finish Slippery Roads. Tawny is at the publishers and I am biting my nails waiting to see if she will be accepted.

I've changed my website and I've added a new section to it. I will also be starting my twelve weeks till Christmas promotion soon. If you haven't already signed up for my e-mail list, do it soon. I don't want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to get some cool items.

I'll be doing a drawing once a week. the first week, there will be twelve giveaways, the second week, there will be eleven and on down to the week before Christmas.

I have mugs, silver bookmarks and several other really cool items, but you've got to be on my email list to get in on the giveaway.

Check out my newest section on the website and let me know what you think.

Happy Reading and Share a smile today.

   Ellie is a delightful Christmas story of a baby elephant who has a wish that all of her friends could go home for Christmas.

                Ellie is for children from pre-school to twelve, but it is enjoyable to all ages.


Ellie has been accepted to be a part of the upcoming Christmas fundraiser for PETA.   They feel that Ellie portrays the empathy for the ethical treatment of animals, that PETA is trying to evoke in people.  

Although I may not go along with everything that PETA practices, I do believe in their feeling that animals should be treated humanely and not be treated as something to be kicked around and beaten for someone's enjoyment. 

I am proud to be partnered with PETA for their humanity.




A story of love, strength, and endurance for one young Indian girl that goes from a loving family to being hunted for the death of the chief, and the destruction of their village.  

               Young Adults and Grown-ups of all ages.

I really enjoyed reading this book and did not want it to end. I think that is the test of a great story. I loved reading about Bill and Marjorie's love story. I was drawn into their love story, hardships and the way they lived their lives but I wanted all of the stories to continue. Thank you for a great look into a love story that lasted till death do us part.

5.0 out of 5 stars  A Beautiful True Story

August 25, 2018

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

This was a beautiful true story about love, lost, grief and happiness. I love books about the South and this story took me back to the 1930s in the South when out houses and walking to school in hand me downs were a thing and living without electricity. I loved Marjorie's relationship with her mother. Such a beautiful heartfelt story.

Federica's review Nov 12, 2016  - Goodreads

4.0  out of 5 Stars - really liked it

I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

I enjoyed the story. It's a glimpse inside a fourteen year old girl life named Bree, her story can be the story of any other teen. It was interesting to follow the development of the story and how her relationship with her family influenced her life, her point of view and more generally how the way were are brought up can influence our choices making us who we are. A short story but an interesting one. 


There is a land where dreams and adventures await us. Only in our dreams can we get there, and when we awake it is gone.

While ten-year-old Tawny lies in a hospital bed, in a coma, she travels to a world that few remember. Her adventures take her a magical land where she can breathe underwater and pet a shark, or talk to a mermaid. Giant gorillas turn into children, and children ride on the back of turtles.

While ten-year-old Tawny lies in a hospital bed, in a coma, she travels to a world that few remember. Her adventures take her a magical land where she can breathe underwater and pet a shark, or talk to a mermaid. Giant gorillas turn into children, and children ride on the back of turtles.

Tawny meets fairies and sprites, and learns that climbing a tree can be as much fun as falling into a book.

The old lady in the shoe won't let her stay and the Mushelrooms are busy trying to catch their sons before they become mushrooms.

Through it all, it is the voice of one person that she continues to hear.

Will she listen or choose to stay in her dream where the Fairyflies await their wings and every snail shell could be a house.

Was the adventure real, or is the adventure waiting to be lived?

At times this book was very hard to read. Our lives have had some similar twists and turns but I continued because I have met you and know the strong woman you are today. I know how much your children love you. I know how much you love them. I pray that one day there are no screams in your dreams. Thank you for writing this difficult chapter of your life and for the inspiration.

Jun 21, 2017 Kathy rated it  ****   4 out 5 Stars really liked it

A friend of mine won this book from goodreads.

I enjoyed this book. It was a good story and well written.

The book is about a woman that is being abused (in every way) by her husband. It is very disturbing to think that this kind of thing is actually happening in our world. Reading about what was happening to her was absolutely heart breaking.

What I didn't like about the book was that it was extremely sexually graphic, too much to be honest. It really wasn't necessary to the story to be that graphic. At some points it just seemed to go on and on. If you can get over that, it's worth a read

Selkirk's Curse

Gregor Selkirk loves the women, but in 1518, loving too many women was a crime.

One woman loved Selkirk, but he wouldn't commit.  

Mystery surrounds the Scottish Highlands and Elspeth MacGillivray follows when Selkirk is imprisoned on a deserted island to spend out his years in solitude.

Elspeth curses Gregor Selkirk to spend eternity as a small wooden image of himself.

Can a beautiful present-day woman break the curse? 

A new series from Scarlett Booty.

A couple of months ago, I sat down to work on one of my books.  By the time I had finished ten pages, I had begun a whole new book.  I think I really like this new character.  He is still a bit of an enigma, but if you like the darker side of books, and a great who done it?  Let me know.  You may be one of the first to get 'Slippery Roads'.
