Day Thirteen

It’s evident that the Whoa! Susannah page has taken an ominous turn. Maybe it seems I’m playing this orphan card for all it’s worth. Maybe I should just take a break entirely from the world of writing until I find my funny. Maybe I should keep the sadness and grief […]

Day Eleven

Aside from my mother’s eulogy, I haven’t written anything in eleven days. So sitting down to write this feels sort of odd and foreign. Eleven days is a long time for me not to have written anything humorous or added a chapter to my novel. Instead, the last eleven days […]

Why Can’t I Get Pregnant?

I didn’t know how to even start this post, but the simple act of typing the title conjured up so much emotion that I’m on the verge of becoming a blubbering idiot. The same blubbering idiot I’m known to become when I watch “Beaches” or “Ole Yeller” or “Toy Story 3” […]

Sequel Survey and Stuff

Hello faithful followers. That sounds so Charles Manson-ish, doesn’t it? Faithful followers. As if you’d disembowel kangaroos or something if I told you to. Ha. You would, wouldn’t you? Tell me you would. Okay, that got off on a weird note. I really love kangaroos. And I hate Charles Manson. […]

Ramblings of Thanks and Whatnot

So, here’s the thing. It’s almost 1:30 in the A.M. Which means that everyone in my home is asleep, including the “Panting Urinator” aka the dog. They are all snoring, every one of them- the husband, the children, the aforementioned “Panting Urinator” and here I am, writing a blog post. I’m writing […]

Bad Student. Bad, Bad Student.

This will probably come as a shock to you, but I wasn’t a good student in high school. I never aspired to attend Yale or become an astrophysicist, so I really didn’t give a rat’s left butt cheek about making good grades or taking my education seriously. The thing is, […]

My Book Is Available! Squee!

I’m pleased and excited and borderline hysterical to announce that my women’s fiction novel, “Ten Years Taken”, is now available on Kindle and in paperback. I’d be pleased and excited and borderline hysterical if you would purchase it. Thanks for your continued support! You’re golden. Ten Years Taken

Hormones from Hades

My doctor recently put me on hormones to help with my fertility issues. God help us all. I searched the side effects sheet but didn’t see any of the following: Overactive Appetite- Far surpassing that of a Grizzly Bear taking Prednisone. Overactive Tear Ducts- I cried at a Jeep commercial. […]

A Rant on Writing

For this post, I’m going to go back to my old style of writing. And by “old style of writing”, I mean “ranting”. If you haven’t had the opportunity to read any of my old blog posts, I encourage you to do so. I’ve written a lot of rants in the […]

Little Shells, Little Masks

I said something today that I’ve said many times. And as always, as soon as the words left my mouth, waves of guilt washed over me. I told my son, “Stop being so shy.” I wouldn’t have scolded him in the slightest if he’d turned to me and said, “Stop being […]
