My Photo



  • My first novel started with a mole. Yes, a MOLE - a freckle, a birthmark, whatever you want to call it.
  • I was at the pool with my daughter getting ignored by our swim instructor when a lifeguard with a particularly ripped abdomen walked by. He stopped to flirt with one of the female lifeguards and my eyes flew directly to an adorable mole on the top can of his six-pack.
  • "How cute!" I thought (among other things). "He looks like a character in a romance novel!"
  • So I went home and started writing fiction for the first time. That was over a year ago and I still haven't been able to stop. GRAVY is the story of a suburban housewife who wants another baby, but gets a man with a mole instead.
  • GRAVY is now available on Kindle and Nook!

I really don't understand. You and Joel love each other, so it seems. WHY can't you be together? ????

Thank you for posting this. I really enjoy your blog and this post provided lots of food for thought.


One thing I wish you had done more of in 2012 - WRITE ('cause I'm totally selfish and think nothing of your need to actually process your life)!! I wish you a PEACEFUL 2013 - I think you deserve it and will appreciate it!


I feel like I should take this opportunity of the new year to say that you inspire me to live with more vulnerability. I can't do that online, for various reasons, but I love your bravery in doing it, and it makes me want to be more real in my relationships. You rock.
