Author of the Month: Celebrity Chef KEITH D. JONES

August 2022...We might be in the dog days of summer, but I'm so excited to feature my first celebrity chef and author, Keith D. Jones, as the subject of this month's author interview. I admit to being a 'food snob,' not in the sense that I have to have gourmet meals, no, but in the vein of healthy, fresh ingredients prepared with love and care and a touch of the creative. That's exactly what Keith brings to his table -- a dedication to eating healthy [...]

July Blog: Sometimes I Just Want To Run Away…

READY? What's that old line about "the world being too much with us"? Sometimes the obstacles laid along the road create a wall too high to scale. Sometimes they force us to confront truths we would rather avoid. If you're a little like me, maybe they cause you to contemplate, if only for a moment, running away, and summer provides the opportune moment to try a faux escape. After all, it's July, summer's highpoint in the northern hemisphere. In this month of heat, humidity, and [...]

January 2022 Author of the Month: MAGGIE BLACKBIRD

It's a new day in a new year...welcome, 2022, and welcome, as well, to Maggie Blackbird, who writes romance novels set among Canada's indigenous people.

September Author of the Month: KEN SCHNECK

For a teacher like me, September has always meant beginnings...the opportunity to meet a bright new crop of young minds and watch them grow. For this journalist, the month also allows me to introduce you, dear reader, to an author and comedian I met virtually during this past year of Zooming. I was so impressed by his presentation and his personality that I invited Ken Schneck to be a guest...and he agreed! Ken wears many hats. He is a tenured professor of education at Baldwin [...]

October 2020 Author Of The Month: KATHLEEN AMBRO

I met Kathleen Ambro at a writers' gathering before the pandemic took them all away. She was delightful. We shared information and talked about our writing. I'm always intrigued by the variety of ways we choose to tell our stories. As an author of children's books and of a biographical novel, she has some insights to share with us. As we talked, I knew I wanted to host her on my website because she had a story to share with other writers interested in the [...]

Heads Or Tails: Choosing to Stay in the Moment

The steamy days and cool nights of August whisper that football is coming. Practice fields echo with the rumble of young men wearing cleats, helmets and shoulder pads as they struggle through two-a-days and learn new play routes. Newspapers devote a significant amount of daily sports coverage to the antics of players, on and off the field. August stretches closer to September. Suddenly it's game time. Then the choosing starts. Each contest begins with a coin toss. Heads or tails. Kick or receive. With the wind or against it. [...]
