One of the best ways to learn how to write well is to write a lot, even though some of it will not be great. Write every day. Also, I would recommend that they read good fiction. Reading good fiction is almost as important as learning how to write well.(less)

Remembering Mom: A Life of Endurance

[image error]

Mom and Me, May 22, 1982 Photo by Sassano Photographers copyright 1982


“Nothing great is ever achieved without enduring much.” St. Catherine of Siena


If the struggles my mother endured are any indication of her achievements in life, then what she achieved here on earth can be considered great, indeed.


My mother (Betti) was born in 1934 and died in 2007, but her influence in my life and i

"Moonchild Rising is a different kind of vampire story. No shimmery vampires that cause a girl to swoon and lose her head. This novel asks the penetrating question: Can a vampire’s soul be saved? And if so, what are the consequences?

“Love means to love that which is unlovable; or it is no virtue at all.”
G.K. Chesterton

“The duty of the moment is what you should be doing at any given time, in whatever place God has put you.

You may not have Christ in a homeless person at your door, but you may have a little child.

If you have a child, your duty of the moment may be to change a dirty diaper.

So you do it.

But you don't just change that diaper, you change it to the best of your ability, with great love for both God and that child....

There are all kinds of good Catholic things you can do, but whatever they are, you have to realize that there is always the duty of the moment to be done.

And it must be done, because the duty of the moment is the duty of God.”
Catherine Doherty

“The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.”
