I hope this finds you safe and healthy, practicing social distancing, and spending time with the ones you love. My life has been quiet with walks in the woods, yoga daily, and on-line classes. I must confess I miss seeing my students, yet I know they are doing the best they can, as we all are, I hope.
This photo was taken close to sunset tonight at a special place in my heart. I am looking to get an inspirational kick. Writing hasn’t been easy this last month, nothing has been, right?
Yet together, with positivity, this too shall pass.

Thank you to Karyn and the rest of the folks at RJ Julia’s Wesleyan bookstore for a wonderful evening with the fabulous JR McCabe and Dana Buckmir along with a visit from Carrie Lombardi #happyhealthybelly!
What a pleasure it is to hang out with these fantastic women writers and just talk writing!
If you would indulge me a bit, I would like to share a few adventures.
Last Friday I braved traffic and Jersey drivers to attend the Rutger’s Writing Conference. What an inspiriting weekend of motivation and education!
I attended multiple workshops featuring New York Times Bestselling Authors Eloisa James (pictured here with me), USA Today Bestselling Author Kristen Luciani, Amy Tan, Sean McCann, and so many others!
I am blessed to have so many aid me on my journey by sharing technique and experience.
After a short breather to review my notes, I headed to my hometown senior center to chat about Maximum Trouble, writing processes, and to listen to the wonderful stories of the folks who joined me. Thank you to those who took the time to share their stories, ask a few questions, or just sat and listened. A special thanks to my high school class president, Tina, for inviting me over. (I am not going to put the number here, yet I will write that our class rules!)
Next stop is R.J. Julia Booksellers in beautiful Madison, CT on June 17th.
Until then, enjoy the sunshine and be kind for one another. Peace.
