Give a little time for the child within you
Don’t be afraid to be young and free
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
And take off your shoes and socks and run you

Run through the meadow and scare off the milking cows
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand
Walk a windy weather day
Feel your face blow away
Stop and listen
Love you…

In my home state of Missouri, it is Gone Girl.
Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" is the most popular book set in Nevada and "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck is the most popular book set in California, according to Mic.com.

The best editor in the business has an opening!  If you are an author who needs some help, get in touch with her quick!
 
Limited EDITING SLOTS Available

Limited, because I know that realistically I cannot provide quality work if I take on more than 150K words in a month.

But, I can take on 150K words in a month and provide the quality people have come to expect from me. 

THEREFORE:

IF you have a project of 50K words or less, and you think we'd make a good fit, by all means drop me an email (it's on my profile) or a PM and we'll discuss it. 

I can potentially book small-project slots in July, August, September, and October.

Being of Irish descent, it makes me very proud that Ireland is the first country to approve marriage equality by popular vote!

Marriage is a legal contract, one that provides certain rights and responsibilities to both parties involved. Being a matter of legality, it is governed by laws and legislation. Denying two people the opportunity to enter into a legal contract based solely on their sexual orientation, means you are no longer providing equal protection under the law, which is guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

I wish those with religious objections could understand that they can believe whatever they want, but this is not a theocracy, and we don't govern based on religion.
Irish political observers from both sides said the first ballot boxes to be opened Saturday pointed to a strong victory for legalizing gay marriage, as the nation began counting results from a national referendum.

That's some awesome shooting!
On a stormy night at at the Heartland Trap and Wobble Skeet shooting range in Harrisonville, Dave Miller accomplished an unlikely feat with his shotgun, breaking 3,653 clay targets in an hour.

Story
Tagline
Author, humorist, lover of life
Introduction
I grew up in Independence, Missouri, and was strongly influenced by Harry Truman's straight talk and honest action. I have been a registered radiological technologist, pre-need counselor, webmaster, humor columnist, and blogger.

I am also a moderator for the Google Plus Community "Writers Discussion Group"  which proudly hit 10,000 members March 8, 2013 and topped 15,000 on October 22, 2013.

I am the author of three books,  a collection of essays, "Queen Klutz: The Misadventures of a Very Clumsy Woman," a paranormal mystery novel, "River of Possibilities," and a humorous self-help manual, "7 Ways You Screw Up Your Life (and how to unscrew it)"

I am published in the Examiner newspaper, 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology and as a featured columnist at USA Deep South and Southern Humorists. I live in rural Jackson County, Missouri.

I am a humorist, lover of life, author and caregiver for my disabled husband (stroke) and until her recent passing, my mother-in-law (Parkinson's). I love social media because I don't get to meet people in real-life due to my caregiving responsibilities.

I blog about laughter, bad luck, no luck, being a klutz, cars that hate me, life and love. I turned several of my blog posts and newspaper columns into my first book.  Then I lived the dream of writing a novel which is available at Amazon and Smashwords.  I am an early adopter of new technologies and wrote a third book - a humorous self-help manual with many friends from the early days of Twitter including Foreword by Chris Brogan. Contributors = Jeremiah Owyang, Becky McCray, Susan Reynolds, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss. I worked for Seth Godin when Squidoo was being launched, building pages to increase the site's viability.
