This past weekend was the Literary Love Savannah book event in Savannah, GA. This was my first book convention and for three days I was non-stop going and it was a blast. We got into Savannah on Wednesday evening with the activities starting first thing Thursday morning. First, hubs and I took advantage of some free time and walked River Street and getting some … Read More Literary Love
I’ve rewritten this post a few times now… hard to decide where to start, so I’m going to try this one more time. Every one is different. We each look different, think different, like different things. This is okay. What I find disturbing is that every day I find people disrespecting one another based on our differences, whether that is skin color, religion, political … Read More Respect and Responsibility
I’ve been blessed to be able to go back to Georgia this last week for vacation and it was perfect, even with the numerous storms – which were random and fierce all at once. I flew into Savannah where my hubs picked me up and we had a great dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Made some calls to let a few people know I was … Read More Home Sweet… Georgia
A while back I heard a conversation where one parent told another they didn’t need to give their child advice anymore because that child was now an adult. I thought about this for quite sometime and mulled it over and over in my head. Here are my thoughts: The only time we are done doing anything for our children is (1) they no longer … Read More When are we done?
On Wednesday, a fellow author reached out to be about attending the Books are Bigger in Texas Author Event being held in Houston, Texas asking if I wanted to attend. What girl could refuse a well known event, especially when she had no other plans for the weekend?! So I went. The event was held in the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and was very … Read More BABIT (Houston, TX)
This weeks #52Ancestors prompt is about longevity… the oldest relative you had or something along that lines. While, I know I am a day or so behind I’ve had this topic on my mind trying to determine who’d I consider. I thought of all the ones who have passed on and their lives. The ones who died young. The ones who died after a … Read More Longevity
While on vacation many people visit sites they have never seen or not seen in awhile, I visit a cemetery. Yep. I grew up in Liberty County, Georgia and the history just seems through the air. So, where else would you find the best history but a historical cemetery! During my visit I did a short reading from my book Born of The Veil … Read More Reading from the grave
Twenty-four… the number of days left in the year. What will you do with 24? Will you do something kind? Will you give to those in need? Will you spend time with friends you haven’t seen or spoken to in a long time? Will you see and spend time with family? Twenty-four – three weeks and 3 days until the year is gone to … Read More 24

In 2004, my paternal grandmother was laid to rest. One of her many talents was working with beads. This piece was handed down to me – it had parts that were broken, although the repairs would be minor they took me 13 years to complete. Why? You might ask…because until now I couldn’t bear to look at it without my heart breaking. Vera Dyess … Read More A piece of art – a piece of my heart.
Well, America – a new president-elect has been named and this country has lost its mind. Okay, we are NOT all going to be happy, obviously or only one person would’ve gotten votes! But come on, why digress and turn back our society so much. Here is what I have to say about it: There is NO pure race. There is NO perfect … Read More Imperfections
