To celebrate the completion of my fantasy manuscript, I went online to ask for possible book-related questions that I could organize into a blog post. I had no idea how or if it would work, so I crossed my fingers and waited. Let’s just say the exercise was less successful than hoped. Kinda hard to…Continue reading The Baker’s Dozen: Just for Fun

In last week’s post I shared part 1 of The Seekers. I wrote that I’d share the second and final part this week, but I forgot that it would be Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. We celebrate a lot earlier than our American neighbors. As I write this post, the turkey is roasting in the…Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving to My Friends in Canada!
Before the Rain I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I decided to come clean and share why I’ve been absent – aside from my road trip. It was a nice trip by the way. We were gone for a week, making it one of our shorter trips. We usually go for…Continue reading We Can’t Enjoy the Sunshine Without the Rain

It’s been a busy school year for me. In addition to work, I’ve spent every available minute from November to February putting my book…Continue reading A Few Quick Thoughts
As we navigate our way through life, we’re bound to make a mistake, maybe two, maybe more. It goes with the territory and it’s called being human. I have to yet to meet someone, anyone, who has never tripped up. Often times, those mistakes teach us our most valuable lessons – etched into our consciousness…Continue reading A Look Back to Count My Blessings

First of all, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all the mothers out there a very happy Mother’s Day! And thanks to my own mother, I discovered many years ago that mothers always know best. Here’s to you, Mom! In celebration of Mother’s Day, P.D. Workman put together a fantastic list of book…Continue reading The Post Without a Name
The other day, I was talking to a friend about how time seems to speed up as you get older. It’s kind of ironic if you ask me – just when we want time to slow down so as to enjoy the many gifts it’s given us, it speeds up instead.
