I believe deeply in the power of story, connection, and authentic relationship.

I’m a fiction author and a former staff writer for Modern Moto Magazine. I am also a blogger, a mom to four kids and a grandma to one, and juggle a mostly full-time job as a registered nurse. I have written short stories and for magazines, as well as online content.

My blog is a mix of life lessons, travel stories and motorcycle adventures built on a foundation of yoga and organic food, poetry and painting with a belief that life should be an intentional endeavor.

My first published novel was Letters From The Ledge, published in 2012. The Truth About Truly and Finn Again were originally published in 2016 and 2017 but have been revised and re-released in 2019. The

Sometimes an idea needs time to mature and dry out before it can be put to the fire and tested. If you try too soon sometimes all you get is a lot of smoke and not a lot of fire. Writing is a very intuitive and connected process for me, so if I'm not connecting there's a reason for it.

Either something has to mature in the story and it's not ready to be told yet or maybe something in me has to happen. Or, maybe I'm trying to write the wrong story. Maybe I'm trying to focus on fiction when there's an article or some non-fiction that needs to come out. Maybe I'm worried about finishing one story when the beginning of another is tugging at my heart wanting to be roughed out on paper while the magic is there.

Bottom line? I try to write when I'm inspired to write, and when I'm not, I realize I either need to fill my tank and recharge, or ask myself if I'm trying to put my energy into the wrong project at the moment. This is where it helps to be a diverse writer with multiple streams of creativity and projects to draw from. (less)

Don’t Pass the Peas, Please!

I was picking peas the other day, which, as it turns out, requires a surprising amount of focus. It’s not nearly as easy as picking strawberries. With a strawberry, sure, you may have to lift a few leaves, but the plump red goodness stands out easily against a backdrop of glossy, dark green. Peas are both fortunately and unfortunately the exact same color as the stalks and leaves they grow around,

Wonderful reference full of great information. As a nurse I really appreciated the solid foundation of anatomy and physiology presented in this book and how it looks at functional movement in the environment of chronic disease.

“When your defenses are down, it's alarming and beautiful - all that strength contained in a glass jar of innocence." He swallowed. "I've loved you since the moment you realized the astronomical odds of us meeting like that, because in that brief second, I watched you suddenly open your heart to the possibility of something magical happening - something unexpected.”
Lynda Meyers, Letters From the Ledge

“Brendan stopped reading. The words had melted into a liquid blur...In his possession was a box full of information that would likely fill in the gaps and help him to wrap his brain around the whys of her death. And yet, there was really only one question that mattered, and Tommy had already answered it.”
Lynda Meyers, Letters From the Ledge
