Five Reasons I Love You
Washington, D,C., May 20, 2017 I sat on the steps of the Carnegie Institution for Science with a drink called "Bee's Knees" (alright, it was my second but it had been a really long day and they were so delicious).  I took off the sandals I'd bought three ho...

The Summers We Were Fourteen
With less than a month left of school, summer is just around the corner. Last summer, my fourteen-year-old daughter was invited to join a friend in Florida for a week.  I really had a hard time deciding if I should let her go.  I relented. A fourteen year o...

Family on the Fly

Come A LIttle Closer
In my substitute teacher travels, I found myself in charge of a middle school library for a day.  I love libraries. Any library.  Big ones. Small ones.  City ones. Country ones.  The Dewey decimal system, the award winning books all shelved together, and th...

A New Year
 There is a 'Before Switzerland' and an 'After Switzerland'.  Two very different periods in my life.  When you write a story, sometimes it's helpful to think about doorways as transitions.  Once a character walks through that doorway, there is no going back...

"We're moving to Sweden?"
