Why I keep writing.
As anyone who blogs will tell you - it's pretty freaking awesome to see your words shared by friends and family. It's extra freaking awesome to see your words shared by people you've never met. And to see a post go viral? Unbelievable. Many a writer has the...

Ten Things You Need to Know About Me.
My lovely friend Tia over at BecominNeurotic tagged me in a post on Friday with some questions. And because she is quite so lovely and a sweetheart and a half, I'm open to answering them. Her friend asked her some questions, which she answered, and then she...

Five Books I'm Reading Now.
Are you the kind of person who reads one book at a time? I USED to be that person. I don't know where she went, but now I'm more along the lines of the people who read several books at once. It's not even eReader-related, because most of the books I'm readi...

Crockpot White Chicken Chili
One of my favorite recipes to make that completely takes care of itself is white chicken chili. It's simple and I almost always have the ingredients on-hand. I start off with the following: * 2c shredded chicken (I typically use rotisserie leftovers, but an...

When nothing means everything.
We just got home from a ton of errands. A quick lunch. A pop-in at a friend's. Selling some of my books. Buying more used ones (not for me - well - not more than one for me). Grocery shopping. For some reason I bought a can of Planters peanuts today. My hus...

Across My Internet: Bits and Pieces
I'm all over the place with the things I've been trying to write. As you'll notice, it's been a while since I've published anything. Unless you count this post over at SITS entitled: 8 Places To Submit Your Writing . That's by me. But otherwise I've been st...

Book of the Week: The Unraveling of Mercy Louis, Keija Parssinen
Let me introduce you to The Unraveling of Mercy Louis. And yes, if you read my last post on the five books I'm reading  - you'll notice this one was missing. Because I knew I had this post coming up this week and didn't want you to think I'd truly lost it b...

Book of the week: The Boy Who Loved Rain, Gerard Kelly
* I received a copy of this book from TLC Book Tours. I was not compensated for this review. All expressed opinions are completely my own. * The Boy Who Loved Rain opened up with our boy. There was a prologue, but I'll be honest, I kind of ignored it - for ...

Five minutes in my brain.
It's 7:45am. It's way too early for me to be up on a Sunday.  The dogs did it.  Well, one of them.  Our older dog, who I love with my entire heart, wakes us up earlier on the regular and tends to cry like a baby when we leave him and his sister pup downstai...

Book of the Week: Women Are Scary, Melanie Dale
When I received an email introducing me to Melanie Dale and her new book with an opportunity to read and review it I jumped at the chance. I mean - look at the cover? It's hilarious. Even my husband asked me, are those cake pops? Uhm, yeah. Yeah, they are. ...

1000 Voices. And I am one.
Voices. Connecting. Gathering together. Speaking loudly. All for one thing. Compassion. When I learned about this event I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to participate. If you don't know me already, you'll learn quickly that I believe that advocating ...

Story
Tagline
I am who I am and I like who that is.
Introduction
My husband and I relocated to NC from NYC in May of 2006 and I am still a non-driving, pizza-and-bagel missing, native Brooklyn-born New Yorker at heart. Our daughter was born in 2007 but thinks she's a teenager most of the time. And honestly we wouldn't have it any other way. Except maybe at bedtime. And when she totally thinks she knows everything. And everything else. You know how it is, right?
