About this author

I was a staffer in newspapers for more than 15 years, until I couldn't take any more bad coffee or late nights.

I still love newspapers - I can't help it.

Now I live in Michigan with my husband, two kids, an overweight cat and a new dog, courtesy of the local humane society. He's huge, but he thinks he's a lap dog.

I've published a murder mystery titled Death on Deadline, based on my own experiences in newspapers (sans the murder, of course!) and a novella of Christmas stories titled Magic, Miracles & Mistletoe.

I recently released a collection of humorous essays on parenting titled "Mom Tales," and I have a short story featured in "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers."

Sometimes Imissworking at a newspaper. I miss the interviews. I miss findingthe stories. I miss the writing. I even miss the burned coffee and the crazy hours.

One day, I missed it so much I made up my own newsroom. I staffed it with a bunch of quirky creative types,andthenI developed my hero - a reporter whowas extra nosy andparticularly vigilant about covering the news.

Then I ... well, I knoc... Read more of this blog post »

“...I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver
