We live in a family-friendly neighborhood. There are loads of cul-de-sacs and kids roaming freely. Maybe way too freely, but we've decided that it's time to let our daughter roam a bit. She's eight. Her birthday was in February, so she's not a "new" eight. ...

Five Books You Should Be Reading Right Now.
I've been on a reading tear of late. I basically dive from one book to the next and can't seem to pause in between them. But that's because I've got so many amazing books waiting for me I just don't want to waste any time at all on empty chatter! I present ...

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...

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...

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...

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?
