Books, My Bio, & Paying It Forward

Books, My Bio, & Paying It Forward

Books, My Bio, & Paying It Forward   If you’ve read my bio, you’ll know that I’m a big proponent of paying it forward. Quite simply, it means doing good deeds for others without asking for anything in return. If you’ve seen the movie ‘Pay It Forward’ or read the novel, it’s a story about a boy who does three good deeds for others in need. In return, all that he wants is for those people to do good deeds for others and keep the cycle going. One good deed might not seem like it would make a difference,...

Pie Girls Preview ~ Chapter One

Pie Girls Preview ~ Chapter One     This cannot be happening. This cannot be happening. I steal a glance at the clock. Where is my husband? And my anniversary gift, for that matter. The robin’s egg blue box, the crinkle of the white tissue paper. The gasp of surprise, well-practiced, when I lift the diamond-encrusted pendant from its nest. Alton, always the gentleman, will insist on helping. He’ll clear his throat, looking rather pleased with himself, stand up, and sweep my long blond hair off to one side. With flourish,...

Pie Girls Setting

All about Fairhope, Alabama ~ Setting for Pie Girls   Before the release of Pie Girls on August 10th, I wanted to share a few things about the setting of the story ~ Fairhope, Alabama ~ just 30 minutes from where I live in Mobile. Fairhope, often referred to as the jewel of the Eastern Shore, is a small city with a population of around 16,000 people. From the moment you drive into the area, you’re immediately greeted by cheery storefronts, well-maintained homes, beautiful gardens, and the sights and sounds of Mobile...

Matt Nathanson: Rock Star Inspiration

Matt Nathanson: Rock Star Inspiration   Last night I had the incredible experience to be part of a small but intimate crowd that welcomed singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson to Soul Kitchen in Mobile, Ala. (And I had 1.5 seconds of Instagram fame WITH the man … details to follow!) Not only was it an incredible performance, with a sweet preview by Joshua Radin, but it gave me pause to think about Nathanson’s life — as a writer, as a performer, and as a person. As an author, I live a relatively sheltered life, choosing to...
