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,...

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...

I’m eager for the outcome, and love the excitement of an election. It’s great to see support for all of the candidates…. and hey,...
