Authors supporting authors is groovy!
I have learned so much from some fierce, fabulous authors and continue to be inspired by their talent, words and willingness to share.
Thank you for being cheerleaders, kind motivators, smart and courageous trailblazers.
I have always believed there is indeed room for us all.
To grow, to learn, to get inspired, to dream bigger.
Get ready to meet some pretty spectacular writers, and human beings.
Inspiration is happening right now.

“Sir Stephen along with lifelong friend Sir Brent take off on a dream adventure to find the promise land and to live significant moments… Can their hearts desire lead them to where they want to go, or does it already? Will they discover if they are a Chosen One or not? You will climb the highest mountains and weep with them in their lowest valleys. Prepare yourself today, for The Chosen One.”
“My hope is readers walk away with an appreciation of their significant moments and take a step back if necessary, to avoid regrets and aspire to thrive. I believe Chosen One will become the one novel they go back to time and time again for their life’s ride.” Steven Sutherland

When Sarah Fader, CEO and Founder of the mental health non-profit organization Stigma Fighters asked me to write “It hurts, Ya’ Know,” an essay for Stigma Fighters I was overjoyed. How often is it that someone is acknowledged for talking about difficult, life-saving topics like mental illness? Sarah Fader does not shy away from challenge. She is a force with the uncanny ability to bring people together while making each person feel individual. An important, collectively part of a group that needs to be seen and heard. Sarah also blogs for The Huffington Post and writes a column called Panic Life for Psychology Today.
Sarah Fader’s recently released Stigma Fighters Anthology, “a compilation of personal perspectives, the first volume of the Stigma Fighters Anthology features essays from real people living with mental illness from around the globe.”
The first volume suggests there will be others. I sure hope so, and cannot wait to continued to be inspired by the light Ms. Fader shares and shines on others.
Authors inspiring authors and I have a feeling Ms. Fader has much to say and joyfully shares her talent and tales.
“Once upon a time Sarah Fader wrote a blog post called 3-Year-Olds Are Assholes. It went viral on HuffPost Parents with over 400,000 shares on Facebook.”
THREE-YEAR OLDS ARE A**HOLES, is the funny and touching little gem that can be enjoyed by mommys’ and non-moms’ alike.

Author Interview with Jacqueline Cioffa, author of “The Vast Landscape” and “Georgia Pine”
“Do you have any unusual writing habits?I ‘write’ best when I’m doing something other than writing, walking the dog, swimming, listening to music, digging in the dirt. I’ll hear a word, hint of an idea or get inspired by something visual. I store the thoughts in a holding pattern in my mind. Sometimes it stays there for weeks growing and omitting until the character or idea becomes a full concept. Then, I type fast. Odd, but works for me.”
“The potential for great stories is happening all around you.” Jacqueline Cioffa

I hate shopping. Clothes shopping.
I’ve been living in sweats and jeans the last five years, shopping hasn’t been a high priority.
Writing does not require Couture, PJs are just fine and acceptable. Authors apparently require a bit more expansive wardrobe.
So I went shopping and came back with nada, the perks of living in NYC were missed today.
When choosing something gala worthy I find sleek lines are best and black is minimalist, modern cool.
Stick to the basics with an edge. Guaranteed this biker chick won’t be wearing a dress.
And always be comfortable in your skin, preferably exposing just the right amount of it.
Modeling was my job where talented stylists threw fabu’ designer clothes on me.
Today I’m in control, it feels liberating and grown up.
