Can I Just "Do Me?"

I actually bought my daughter (age 22) this book because she (and many others her age) worry more about what people think of them. I wanted her to realize she is ENOUGH -- no need to look for value outside self. The title grabbed me but the sub-title reeled me in -- "how to be […]

Do You Ever Talk To Strangers?

I've read Gladwell's Blink and Outliers and The Tipping Point. He manages to make intimidating subjects accessible. So I'm giving Talking To Strangers a shot. I am listening to it and I love how he uses the real voices throughout. For example, when speaking of a speech by Clinton, he plays a clip. I'll let […]

Luxurious Writing Takes Me To Russia

This book is simply a joy to read. Towles writes like silk sheets -- you just want to hunker down, surround yourself in his words and in the Count's world. This is a book that should be read out-loud. His writing is lyrical and his themes transcendent. For example ... "But then, as every child […]

Tatum Jackson - Yummy

If you like alpha-males then you will love Tatum Jackson. He lives in Carnal, Colorado and just the name Carnal tells you all you need to know. His mouth gets him in trouble and then that same mouth keeps him out of trouble (and yes, I meant the double entendre). I'll admit he's too domineering […]

Am I Stuck Like This?

An Introduction to Discovery-Acceptance-Change Recently I was told that we cannot change our character. Is that true? Am I stuck? Are you? Certainly, some aspects of self are hardwired. I have blue eyes. I am five feet tall. I am female. I carry my extra weight around my middle. If I don’t get enough sleep, […]

Why Did You Ask Me?

Has someone ever asked you for advice? Has someone asked for advice then not taken it? Has someone asked for advice then not taken it AND kept complaining about the situation? You sit listening to the whining for the thousandth time. But the person refuses your or anyone’s advice. Do you want to pull your […]

All I Want for My Children

Over the last few weeks, I’ve heard the following phrases in a variety of places (conversations, TV, books) so I decided the Godiverse wanted me to think about this concept: “All I want for my children is for them to be happy.” Doesn’t that sound lovely? But, if that’s truly your only goal for your […]

  • All of my novels, at least so far, have an element of mental illness within a character.  Decide to Hope is the most autobiographical in that I struggle in many ways exactly as the female protagonist.
