I grew up in Pennsylvania and spent most of my life in the East. In 2007 my family and I moved to California. With two cars my husband and I moved two dogs, two guinea pigs, a cornsnake, and our 10-year-old daughter across the country (whew!). The five-day road trip (including a near escape by both dogs on Day 3) was one of my best (and most interesting) experiences ever. In fact, I'm not sure why that isn't a book yet...

A few years later, after an especially boring day in the car (where the kids and I told stories and built characters instead of griping), I found writing again. Fiona Thorn was born on that day, and I’ve been writing ever since. :)

Be Good to Your Boobies

A few weeks ago my daughter started talking about doing the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. One of her friends was on a team and they wanted to walk together. It sounded perfect; support a great cause, let her learn the value of volunteering, and all on Mother's Day weekend. Sweet.

But to be honest, I couldn't get into it. I'm ashamed to say it felt like a chore, like one more thing to check off Read more of this blog post »
