This Is How It Always Is

This was a 5 out of 5 stars read for me!   “This is Claude. He’s five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess.” Don’t we all? Aren’t we all looking for that fairy tale ending? But thisContinue reading “This Is How It Always Is”

Castle Of Water

This was a 5 out of 5 stars novel for me; as near a perfect emotional ride as you can take.  How do you review something that blew you away?

Lying To Children

From the nine months it takes to create that perfect little life until the eighteen years and beyond it takes to raise them, children are by far the greatest gift we ever receive.  Their first smile. Their first laugh. Their first words. Their first steps. All are such monumental milestones. As parents, we smile andContinue reading “Lying To Children”

The Halloween Children – Coming June 13th to a bookstore near you!

As Halloween looms, tensions are building between the members of the Naylor family. Relations are getting woefully strained. Fractured. Violent. To top it off the annual Stillbrook Apartment Halloween party has been canceled. That was the last straw. The Halloween Children are not going to like that at all. Looks like the Naylor’s family woesContinue reading “The Halloween Children – Coming June 13th to a bookstore near you!”
