Welcome to my website!

I live in Los Angeles, where I write and blog under the California sun.

Readers' Favorite Award

Readers' Favorite Award

Yesterday I found out that Waking Mathilda won the Silver Medal for Non-Fiction/ Memoir in the 2017 Readers Favorite Book Awards.

It was one of those funny moments when you think twice about answering your cell because you don't recognize the number and you've heard about a "free" cruise to Alaska many times. Then, just because you're distracted by the cat throwing up, you assume the phone call is important because one of your teens is giving blood and the other is at the beach and could be drowning! 

But receiving a good news call particularly when you forgot that you entered a competition 6 months ago is a very pleasant surprise.

I'm just bowled over and out of words--unusual for a writer but sometimes you just have to sit back and reflect with gratitude for these tiny triumphs. 

I would love to thank my reviewers/judges and say a big congratulations to S.C Sterling for coming first and receiving the Gold Medal for Teenage Degenerate. 

Gotta love the digital certificate since I can't  go to Miami to collect all the bling in person. This substitute feels real enough. I'll take it.
