Anything is possible.

From the time I can remember, I have been a goal setter and achievement oriented.  this can be very positive, and the down side was that often I would avoid starting something unless I was pretty sure that the outcome would be successful.  It has been who I am.  Nick has helped me see that there is a different way.

Over the years, he has made attempts at many different things.  Most of which don’t fit the doctors descriptions of his capabilities and capacities.  In addition to the obvious things that he has learned through hours and hours of physical, speech and occupational therapy, he has snow skied, he has ice skated, he learned to twirl his partner while dancing.  He learned to swim, he has snorkeled searching for sea turtles.  He regularly practices yoga with his wonderful teacher Kelley Rush.  Her studio, Two Rivers Yoga is just down the street, near our home.

Nick is willing to try new things and practice them for years if necessary.  The joy he feels is in the journey not necessarily in the accomplishment of the task.

Lately at 37 years of age, he has been working on using a knife to cut up his own food.  So far it is a butter knife, but who knows, with Nick anything is possible.

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.
