What I’m Thinking: A Bit of a Distraction

October 29, 2019 | 0 Comments

 I like to be consistent with my weekly blog, but this week has thrown a curve ball. Besides needing to meet some deadlines, I was finally ready to welcome a new “pup” into my home. (It’s been over three weeks now since I had to say goodbye to Logan.) His name is Louis and for now he’s a [...]

What I’m Thinking: The Thrill of Reading

October 22, 2019 | 0 Comments

As I’d mentioned previously, I was to attend New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association fall conference last week, which I did. Even though I no longer co-own a bookstore, I’m still a member because my business partner and I intend to do some offsite book events where there’s no need [...]

October 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

    Anyone who knows the story of Logan, the Yorkie that I rescued about five years ago, may understand the anxiety I am feeling about the decision I must make. For the last several days he’d refused to eat and only wanted to sleep. A couple of times he vomited bile, while another time [...]

What I’m Thinking: Casting Those Stones

September 24, 2019 | 0 Comments

  There seems to be so much throwing stones at people who have made mistakes in their youth, some egregious mistakes, some foolish mistakes and some thoughtless mistakes, but I feel we are going overboard by demanding these now adults lose their jobs and having their reputations ruined by [...]

What I’m Thinking: All About Retro…But Why?

September 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

Not long ago I sold my big old Colonial and ended up downsizing, even though I didn’t downsize as much as I initially thought I would. The Dumpster was filled to capacity before I moved but I still managed to bring along bins upon bins of autographed copies of books I’ve collected over the [...]

When I moved to Long Island many years ago, people were surprised to learn that I had grown up on a farm. For some reason, I didn’t exude a farming persona. People would ask me what it was like and say how awesome it was to always have fresh cow’s milk, butter, beef and more. Living off the [...]

8/27/19—Mixing Politics with Prose

August 27, 2019 | 0 Comments

I cannot believe that it was fourteen years ago when my first novel, Without Grace, was published. So much has happened professionally, personally and politically since then. It was also around the time that Arianna Huffington invited me to blog for her brainchild, Huffington Post. I was thrilled [...]

8/20/19 – New Beginnings

August 20, 2019 | 0 Comments

It’s been a little over two months since my business partner and I had to close the bookstore/wine bar since we could no longer keep using our retirement money to keep it afloat. The decision was both difficult and easy. We loved having the bookstore but didn’t love that we lost so much money [...]
