LISA SCOTTOLINE On What Makes a Good Thriller

I want to introduce you to 
my favorite writer, Lisa Scottoline.  

Her books always have a moral dilemma and there are so many twists and turns, she'll keep you guessing until the very end. Another thing I love about her style of writing is, she writes short chapters. 
I write every day and the only time I read is when I'm snuggled in bed with my dog, Rose at night. When I start getting sleepy, I hate having to flip ahead to see how many more pages before the end of a chapter, but not with Lisa's work. And, because of her excellent writing skills, I find myself reading even more than I would otherwise. 

     Check out her website and 
read her books!

Dramatic Texting And Driving PSA

     My newest book project is centered around texting and driving. Yesterday morning while driving on a two lane road, the SUV in front of me kept ping-ponging over the center line and then back to the left side of the road, almost going up on the median. I backed off because the brake lights kept coming on sporadically and finally the driver switched lanes. 
     As I carefully passed the car, there sat a woman, approximately in her late 20's with her elbows pushed together in front of her GUIDING THE STEERING WHEEL while she texted away, staring down at her phone and occasionally looking at the road in front of her. My first instinct was to honk my horn at her and motion for her to put the phone down, but I was afraid she'd lose control of the car and either slam into a pedestrian on the sidewalk, or the car in front of her.
     I wish teens would be forced to watch public service announcements and then take a pledge. Maybe an app will be invented that once you start your car, the texting capabilities are shut down. Or maybe local law enforcement agencies could offer a hotline where drivers can report offenders. With the new school year coming up soon, it scares me. I pray that texting while driving will be outlawed some day.
     Please forward this PSA on and don't text and drive! 
Thank you....

I ♥ Synchronicity!

     One big lesson I've learned in my life is, that once we follow our bliss and live authentically, these actions get the proverbial ball rolling. Opportunities arise. Like-minded people "find" each other. Everything begins to fall into place.
     I recently received an email from Anthea Whitlock who has an awesome blog called, Kids in the Flow. She read about my children's book on another website and then asked if she could feature it on her blog -- of course I said, "YES!" 
Here's the blog post she wrote:
     Take some time to read through Anthea's site . . . . she's a woman, who's on a mission to empower children (and adults) 
and to help them to realize just how special they are! 
Thanks, Anthea for all that you do!
