I Love Ian Taggart's Witty Remarks

Because the Controversy is Ridiculous

People are complaining about this book -- to the point of threatening the author -- because she dared to write about a Hispanic's difficulties with immigration. It's FICTION. If authors can't write outside their own life experiences, then I guess I can only write female WASP fiction! How boring that would be. This is not […]

A Professional What?

As I write this post, we are in the midst of the COVID-19 situation and everybody's worried and afraid and hidden in their houses. Not fun. Not awful either. It just is.

Tit-For-Tat: Bad Me or Human Nature?

Have you ever discovered something about yourself that you would have sworn wasn’t true? Or has someone ever shown you something about yourself that you denied until the evidence was clear? This happened to me two weeks ago and I, quite frankly, still haven’t decided how I feel about it. Am I a “bad” friend […]

Eating Disorder: A Study in Grief

“Recovery is a lifestyle. You have to change how you see the world and how you see yourself.” ~ The Shadows We Hide by Allen Eskens If you had the chance to read my last post, Back To Therapy, you know my Eating Disorder has reared her ugly head again. I was naïve to think […]
