Years have passed since I was placed on this great planet we call Mother Earth. And in all of these years I've been blessed with life, I've screwed up a lot, but I've also gotten my fair share of things right. I've been knock...

I'd give anything
The other day we were sitting around talking about the last few weeks at our house. From the chaos of my dad's heart attack to Lucas's surgery to Claire's surgery and her illness, it's been a crazy-stressful time around here. As we were all talking I was to...

Be careful what you wish for
With the passing of each day this year, as we've gotten closer and closer to Zach's graduation, I've been wishing time would slow down and take a pause. And it has. The winter weather has definitely made us all slow down, and not just a little bit, quite a ...

Sometimes
Sometimes in life you just need to sit back and look at the little parts of your picture...you know, the ones that keep the big part of your picture sparkling clean. Here, in this very blog, these are some of the ones I've come up with in the past couple of...

Help
Every morning I get a thought of the day delivered to my phone from Real Simple magazine. Most of the time, these thoughts of the day inspire me through my own day. Sometimes they make me giggle. And sometimes I have no earthly idea what they mean. But yest...

Story
Tagline
I'm a misfit of a mama who wrote a genre-less book. Misfit to be sure but angelic no more. My book's racy scenes tarnished my halo and tattered my wings.
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!
