When I wrote my biography for my book, and then again for marketing, I had to write it in third person. I didn't like that. It felt weird writing about myself from the point of view of someone else. So I decided that here, I'd tell you about me the way I want to. Here it goes: I've lived in the same town for half a century. I am an accountant (yeah, I know...totally NOT writer-ish, but it pays the bills). I love all things that are British, sparkly, or magical. I don't like to travel and am happiest when I'm at home with my dog. I'm pathetic when it comes to fashion. I can't walk in heels, and I LOVE dresses...on other people. I was 48 when I started writing my first book (you're never too old), and I'm working on book 2 now.

Fake it 'til you make it

My book launch was last Saturday. It was an enjoyable and exciting experience, but it was also exhausting. I’ve learned so many things since I began the journey to getting this book out there, with my most recent lesson being this: Fake it ‘til you make it.

I am, by nature, an introvert. I’m hard-wired to do things like only leave the house when necessary, be more of a listener than a speaker, and Read more of this blog post »

Bought this book for my niece. She loved the challenge of the boys versus girls about which sport is better (baseball or softball) and she learned that some things aren’t better than others, only different, and that both require teamwork and talent.

This book was really good. I love historical fiction because I can learn while being entertained (a spoonful of sugar). I had to remind myself several times that this was not a memoir...that’s how real the characters felt.
