Life Story in a Nutshell
My story is as follows: Married with kids. Need I say more?
Being A Writer
My first novel was about three female friends, with the central theme being a woman’s struggle to overcome the frustration and drudgery that sometimes comes with being a wife and mother. (When I wrote the first line I’d just put one of the kids to bed crying, and had the incessant wailing in the background as my motivational anthem). Well, the novel took me three years to write and was a total bust – I had quite a lot to learn.
After that book was appropriately cremated, then buried, I started my new “destined-to-be-Pulitzer-prize-winning” bestseller. It was a tough road; I struggled through two more kids, and a myriad of kid-problems. Again, learned a lot. The novel was put on hold more times than I could count. But I finally made it through, and after ten years, finished IS HARVEY DUNNE?.
I wrote this outstanding masterpiece for Harvey Dunne, and all those like him, who can’t find comfort in their own skin, in a world where the word NORMAL carries too much importance.
IS HARVEY DUNNE? was self-published and is currently available on Amazon, both paperback and Kindle versions.
I’m currently revising the manuscript for my historical fiction novel about three young women ensnared in the prostitution trade of the early 1900’s.

I post about random issues. Some are funny, some are sad, some are painful. Most are about kids, family, and writing.
