Please
Dear Darlings, Today I sit and type with a heavy heart, tears sting my eyes and a lump rests in my throat. One of Zach's high school friends is being laid to rest tomorrow. No parent should ever have to endure the pain of saying goodbye to their child. It's...

Five words. Three sentences.
Dear Darlings, There are three sentences (okay, some might not agree that these are all sentences, but for the sake of this blog, they are all sentences in my mind) in life I think you should know well and embrace. I know my own kiddos know these sentences,...

Trained Killers
To my regular readers, this post is in response to an article I read in a college newspaper in Lexington, Virginia where two universities stand side by side on the real estate front, but differ vastly in their composition of students. Both VMI and Washingto...

The Perfect One
The athlete, the rule follower, the good student, the one who did everything right and nothing wrong, the firstborn...the perfect one. That's how Lucas and Claire refer to their big brother. "Zach is the perfect one,"they say. So I'm here to set the record ...

Don't just fly...SOAR
Dear Darlings, I've been thinking about, and sitting on this, for weeks...maybe even months. I hope this doesn't come off as syrupy, or overly dramatic. I hope too, it doesn't come off as crazed rambling of my over-active mama brain. What I want, is for you...

The Hardest
Dear Darlings, I thought this would get easier with each of you. I thought it would be easiest with you, Claire. But it wasn't. I think this time was the hardest.  Claire,  Today was your freshman orientation. You were a bundle of nerves as we left the hous...

Dear Darlings, Today I sat through another milestone event in your lives, your eighth grade awards ceremony. I watched and beamed with pride (and cried a little) as many of your names were called to receive an award, which marked the end of your academic ca...

Story
Tagline
I make stuff up. From fiction to food and almost everything in between, I make it up.
Introduction
I'm an army brat who grew up to marry an army man.  I've lived in many different houses and places and have a fondness for each place I've been lucky enough to call home. Texas, California, Maryland, Colorado, Kansas, Arizona, Germany and Kentucky each have a huge piece of my heart.  
Somewhere along my travels I found writing to be a true treasure.  I love taking pieces of my real life and twisting the story just enough to come up with a work of fiction.  I just published my first novel called The Point of No Return.  I also love sharing stories of my real life on my blog www.jdcombs.com.    
I've stopped roaming the country (my husband is now out of the army) and I am more than fortunate to live in the state I love to claim as my own.  Virginia is where my heart is and I'm proud to call it my home.   
Bragging rights
I've been married almost 20 years...all of those years to the same man! WOW! We have three incredible kids who are growing up too quickly. And in between all of this I found time to write and self-publish my first novel. "The Point of No Return" is my newest baby and there are times when I can't believe I've done all of this and survived!
