Je Ne Sais Quoi!!!!

JE NE SAIS QUOI Feeling a lil something-something / feeling some kind of way Receiving compliments used to be something that was hard to accept. I have always been so critical of myself and sometimes negative about many things in my life. However, over the years I have grown and become a more mature positive […]

#Tune In Tuesday

Lots going on theses days. Let’s get to the updates. Last movie I saw.  My daughter and I went to see “Badder Santa”, was not what I expected. The first Bad Santa was hilarious but this second edition gave a few chuckles. As I have always stated some movies are just not meant to be […]

Children’s Book

September 2016 Been struggling with writing the children’s book that was requested by my granddaughter. I have written the book and now currently in the editing phase.

25678Who would have thought becoming a writer/author would be the scariest experience? My thoughts were why would I write, would anyone read my book? My mind was racing. Who do I contact, where should I start, where can I find help? Can I truly be a good writer, am I cut out for this?

We will soon find out as I continue my  journey of writing, learning, editing and publishing.

For almost two decades, I procrastinated with making a decision to write or not to write.


Slightly Bruised and a Little Broken: A Memoir


Mother paid close attention and noticed everything that went on with me as a child. However, she was unaware that her step dad, Liam, was molesting her ten-year-old child. I was living out of town with my grandparents. My mother was not there.

I don’t blame her for not being aware; she thought I would be safe with my grandparents.
