Being Brave(r)

kjfd98hj

I’m a worrier, someone who tends to overanalyze things, weighing the risks versus the benefits. This is not a trait that makes me happy. (I don’t always think things through, though. I did jump on Andrew’s skateboard a few months ago, meeting the sidewalk, face first. That was unfortunate). But mostly I’m a thinker. I don’t like this because it limits me, and I have to psyche myself up to do/try new things. After my first bout with cancer, I’d tell myself: If you can get through that, you can do anything. But then I’d forget what I’d been through and have to give myself another pep talk...

Cancer Update: The State of Me

gfdrghjlij

At the end of Let Me Get This Off My Chest, I promised that I’d update my blog some day and share my progress. As of yet, I have no nipples; no tattooed-on areolas; my implants are still a little strange. During my last visit with the plastic surgeon, she decided that since the skin on my radiated side was so thin...

A Somewhat Strange Dialogue Between the Body and the Breasts

…for Breast Cancer Awareness Month…

two-lemons

Body: Well, you have to admit, the underwires do make you look perky.

Breasts: True. That is true. But can we ration them to our once-a-month date night, then?

Body: We’ll see. I’m making no promises.

Breasts: Also, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about those five-inch heels…

Who doesn’t like to kiss?

Kissing is one of my favorite things. Fortunately, the books I write, even the short stories, are genres where I’ve been able to include kissing scenes. Personally, I much prefer writing about relationships and love as opposed to horror and violence. But that’s just me.

In honor of Valentine’s Day—the ultimate day for kissing—I’ve included an excerpt from my recently-published romantic comedy Finding A Man For Sylvia. In this scene, the heroine, Julia Hawthorne-Florez, a romantic at heart who is determined to find matches for all of the lonely souls in the world—describes the first time she meets her love, Javier...

With my debut novel’s recent publication as an ebook , I’ve received thousands (umm, a few) of questions from folks. For many, ebooks are newfangled, slightly scary, and a little mysterious. There are many misconceptions, and many of us are learning—especially those of us who aren’t, erm, techies.

Convergence and a Celebration

MPAbanner

Everything is on the surface right now. Life seems extra full. It’s as if the universe is trying to tell me something. What? I’m not sure, but maybe one takeaway is that my first book’s release, while important to me, is not the most important thing in my life. As always, it’s the people I love--my family, my friends, those of you who have been there and continue to lift me up.

If you post a comment here, you’ll be automatically entered to win a free copy of Normalish. Your comment will also enter you into the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire. Awesome coolness...

Musa Authors Memorial Day Blog Hop: Remember the Heroes, Put out your Flag (Please)

images-1

He didn’t talk about the war much -- the returning soldiers tended not to but went about their lives, probably trying to forget. He did mention one time that it was hard to find work when he was discharged since his job had been given away, and so many other service men found themselves in the same situation.

But his story is practically a fairy tale compared to so many others...

There are no winners or losers.  It's the international community of writers--hundreds of thousands have signed up this year--cheering each other on.  The first couple of days were tough.  I already had my beginning, had introduced the main characters and the plot, but I had no idea where the story was going...
