Merry Christmas.

When Nick was little, the doctors warned us many times that he would probably get to a point where he’d reach a plateau in development and quit learning new things.  That hasn’t happened. I want to tell you about our Christmas Miracle this week. Last  Wednesday, while we were experiencing all the fun hectic traditions

Death is unexpected.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the day my dad moved his residence to Heaven.  He went a few days before the big birthday celebration for Jesus.  Nick celebrates the day people pass away as their Heaven day, to him it is like a birthday.  He remembers loved ones and sends them balloons up to

Tradition, Tradition!

The Christmas holiday begins next weekend and the common question asked is, “Are you ready?”  Well most of you are not as lucky as me.  I have a personal assistant named Nick, that makes sure I am ready long before the Christmas rush. Starting just before Thanksgiving, Nick begins reminding me that Christmas is coming

Just another normal response.

We have all experienced it.  We are trying our best to handle a situation and then someone, who hasn’t any experience with what we are going through, decides what is best and tells us what we should do.  I have had various responses over the years to the same scenario, but last week my response

What would I do?

My son Nick has a rare, debilitating, life threatening disease called Lennox Gastaut Syndrome.  For over 38 years I have been consciously aware that with LGS he has an increased risk of unexpected premature death.  There is even a name for it.  SUDEP, sudden unexpected death from epilepsy.  This hangs over me every day.  When

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
