The Birth of Blog

A writer, a poet and all around book lover. I write for the same reason that I read, because it fills my life with joy and meaning.  Books and a love of words has given me a career and once a trip abroad.

A dear friend suggested that I turn my love of books into this blog.  So, here we are. This is a place for me to share my love of books as well as my writing.

Reading can be a wonderful journey; that may sound trite, but it is true.  Reading, even, the novels I like to call brain candy has taught me a lot about myself.

Take the time some day and just look at the books you tend to pick up.  I realized that over the last decade my book selections have been filled with incredibly strong women who do the right thing even if it isn’t the easy thing; that particular insight made me sit back and think for a long time.

Mini Bio

Born in Hershey, PA, I have always been a lover of books and writing.  I was rasied outside of our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C..  I have been writing since I was in elementary school when I was a Terracenter Tiger.  Now as a proud graduate of Virginia Tech, I live and work in the Orlando, Florida area with my three fuzzy sons,  Jack, Nu Mu and Luke, and a turtle named Hrothgar.  (Grendal the fish was eaten by him a month ago)

I work full time as an English teacher and part time at waterpark; writing at night or when no one is looking.

  1. I agree about books filling your life with meaning (other things do too lol), but I can’t imagine a day without reading a good book.

  3. Hi Lucinda

    I’m an author and I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing my latest book. Set during WWII and called We Go Again, it centres around a small group of soldiers in France. It deals with the relationship between soldiers and the effects that war can have on a person’s state of mind. There’s even a smidgen of romance within its pages and it touches upon the less well-known roles that women had during the conflict.

    If you’re a member of the Kindle clan I can get a copy of the book file sent over to you; otherwise I’m more than happy to get a paperback copy shoved through your letterbox.

    You can see the cover of the book on my website.
