Topic for my NEXT next book?

So I’m in the process of wrapping up the final steps in my next book, Charlotte and the Search Dogs (available on Amazon in about 10 days), and not having any laurels upon which to rest, I’m already thinking about the book after that. In this series, I feature dogs...

November 2016: My Back and My Book

Hi all! Since it’s been – well – over a year since I last posted, I figured I was a little overdue. Here’s what’s been going on: 1. Back pain. Major, awful, getting worse all the time, God-am-I-boring-because-I-can’t-do-anything-now, back pain....

Grocery shopping and gray matter

Lately, I’ve been writing a lot of neurosurgery articles for work. It got me thinking – something as mundane as grocery shopping is a veritable all-you-can-eat buffet of neurological goodness. I’m going to guess that everyone reading this takes grocery shopping for granted. Heck,...

The Drywall Diaries #1

As some of you already know, Jack and I are moving this summer. We’ve signed papers on a “carriage home” (sort of a cross between a townhome and a single-family home) that’ll be built by mid-June. Unless Mother Nature has multiple hissy-fits like she did...

My Dog Is Not My Child

Don’t get me wrong, animal-lovers. I adore my dog Bailey. I buy her toys and dress her in a coat and sweater when it’s cold and bake her treats myself and seek out her sloppy kisses (even though I shudder to think where her tongue has been.) She’ll still not a child, though. A...

So, Wait – Flowers Don’t Come From the Store?

A surprise Friday afternoon email from a client gave me a reprieve from my latest heinous deadline, which meant I got my weekend back! What to do with two whole days free and gorgeous weather? Why, garden, of course. Except that I don’t garden. Let me back up here. Jack and I are...

Hopes, Dreams, Life, and Footwear

We went to Devon Horse Show yesterday. It reignited a lifelong dream of mine – a dream to be one of the riders there. I want a horse. I want lessons. But most of all, I want the boots. Have you seen those riding boots up close? They’re gorgeous. Most are custom-made! And...
