A Return to Self
I used to be an excellent organizer. I was one of those freaks that would color coordinate anything and everything. If I could designate it a color and categorize it with other similar things I was in heaven. And don't even get me started on my incessant need to alphabetize things. I worked in a library […]
Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!
Growing up I was known to be somewhat of a storyteller. Actually, they didn't even sugarcoat it with that, they called me a straight out liar. You have to understand, I needed attention. Ok, that sounds a bit pretentious. I mean, there I was the youngest, the only girl with three older brothers and I […]
All For the Love of Shoes
“So, what'll it take to motivate you? Should I take away tv time,” my husband asked with a sly smirk on his face. I slid my foot into my black converse and started to tie the worn out laces. “Noooo, dad. I have no idea what'll it take to get me writing again. Every time […]

My Escape to Panera
If you follow me on the Have Coffee .Will Write blog you know that last week was a tough week for me as a mom and a writer. I was fed up with trying to do everything for everyone and not having any time for myself as a writer. I have to say that the […]
My Writing Environment
When I think of writers sitting down in their offices to write their next bestseller I don't picture a dining room table littered with Barbie dolls, play food, notebooks, sippy cups and used tissues. But alas, that is my office. We bought this old house back in 2005, before kids, before dogs, before I knew […]
