Welcome to my Website!
I am so glad you are here.
And, I am so glad to be here, too! I finally took the leap of faith to get on-line and share the message of my children’s book “So Much The Better”.
The journey began over 20 years ago when my two precious daughters were very small. My greatest joy back then was to cuddle up together and read books. I enjoyed witnessing their delight as they listened to the words come off the pages and into their beautiful imaginations.
One day I was inspired to write a story of my own to read to them. It was going to be only a short story mind you. I sat at the table, opened a notebook full of blank pages and began to write. Out of my heart and through my hand the words began to flow until I just couldn’t write them down fast enough.
My mother gave me an electric typewriter to get the scribbles transferred into type that we could read. And, so I did read the “short” story to my daughters, (which had somehow turned into a 17 chapter manuscript). They were absolutely thrilled to listen to “Mommy’s” story and, of course, loved it.
(By the way, if this is getting too long, you are welcome to scroll down and read the short version. We writers tend to get a bit wordy)
The book sat patiently for years until the personal computer came on the scene. I learned how to save my book on something called a “floppy” disc. And, again the years went by. My two daughters grew up and eventually moved away from home.
Then an idea called “self-publishing” came along. Well, why not. I really had the desire to get my story in book form. I wanted to give it to my daughters as a memory of their childhood and for them to have it to read to their children someday as well.
Now, by this time on the computer we are into Word 2007 and the book once again morphed into another form, that of becoming an actual “paperback” with cover and all! What an amazing process it was and what a thrill to distribute the book to family and friends.
My heart was deeply touched as I began to get such wonderful feedback from my readers both young and old. They kept saying “this message has to get out there, the world needs this!”
So, I was inspired to take my non-techie self and get “out there” on the internet in attempts to share the message of “So Much The Better” with the world. And, after taking that leap of faith, here I am with the book once again taking new form as an E-Book .
I realized this journey with my book is never ending. Who knows what form it may take next.
Thank you to all who inspired me to “get out there” with the message. I am truly so much the better because of you.
The Short Version:
Over 20 years ago I was inspired by my two daughters to write a story. The message came out of my heart through my hand onto a notebook filled with blank pages. The words began to flow until I couldn’t write them down fast enough. I read the story to my daughters and, of course, they loved it. As the years went by I decided to self-publish the story to put it into book form to share with family and friends. I was told, “this message has to get out there, the world needs this!” So, I took the leap of faith to “get out there” with the message of my book, “So Much The Better”.
My desire is that throughout the world, both young and old, will indeed read my book and be touched deeply by the message within.
