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!

When I saw this title I thought you had signed up for this:


You must read Run Like a Mother by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea!


So rad. I just read the above comment and if you are at all interested in reading about running mile markers by Kristin Armstrong (Lance's ex) is amazing. About spirituality, motherhood, sisterhood. It might rock your world and feed your soul a bit as well.


When I first started running, 2yrs ago, I had a lot of aches and pains that tried to side trackme. The physical became a metaphor for the mental/emotional. My "Sole Sister" and I had a motto...."Wrap up what hurts and keep running". It applied to our heartaches as much as it did our shin splints

I'm going to do c25k with you. I just hit my pregnancy weight in Dec, not to mention how horribly out of shape I am. And though I hate running, and will have to do it outside since I can't afford the gym, I'm gonna do it. I downloaded the c25k app and I'm starting today.

Good luck with your :)

I don't think you're just running FROM. I think you're running TOWARD. It would be wonderful if you'd let us know when you figure out where...

I run because it proves to me that I can do hard things.
I run because it quite literrally keeps me sane. It's the very best thing for my mental health. No lie.

I don't think you have to be running from anything. I think you're running because it does bring you back to the present.

Keep running. It sounds like it is who you are.

And that typo is going to bug the shit out of me now.


Couple of notes:: not "running away from" running towards :) something great !
I have been away from taking care of my self for a while but getting back at it.
My previous journey

Touches on depression and running. Many times I just bust in to tears while riding my bike.
