In my first blog I wrote about how it fascinates me to figure out what drives each of us as individuals. I love delving into the psychology of people’s minds, including my own. You know, I’m one of those people who likes to do armchair psychology. It makes for good ideas for characters, anyway. 🤷♀️🙂
I wrote about the relationships in my life with some wit, and lots of introspection in the memoir anthology titled, Home Avenue.
My novel, Whit’s End, released on November 20, 2016. This one has lots of family dynamics going on, and delves into moral questions. Two women marry into the same dysfunctional family.
You can read more about both of these books on my Memoirs and Fiction page.
The links for both books are above, or you can click on the book covers on the right.
I wrote a short story about my first dog in the book anthology Dogs and the Women Who Love Them. It’s about a beautiful life lesson I learned from my dog.
I’ve also had a couple of short stories published in the magazine, Angels on Earth.
In the 90’s, I wrote and published a deeply personal book about my struggle with infertility (using a different author name). The book is no longer available. I wrote a little more in depth about this topic in my blog post, Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled.
In place of children, we got our first dog (on left – Australian Shepherd, Piezon) when I was in my thirties, and he and I connected at the heart. His time to leave us came in June of 2009. We adopted a three-year-old Aussie, already named Max, in March 2011 (below). He left us more recently, on January 8, 2020. We miss them both terribly.
I find the human psyche so intricate, yet so simple.
