Gone Again!

Nick loves airplanes. Playing with them, watching them take off and land, traveling on them, everything.  Arden and I are very blessed.  This trip we are not heading to Ireland, instead, we are going to Kentucky to visit family, do Halloween, a birthday celebration and get lots of hugs from grandchildren.

In the middle of our trip,we are going to Orlando, to attend the four day Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) conference.  It will be a first for our family to connect with others who are experiencing the same journey with this rare disease.  We are looking forward to meeting in person the people we have gotten to know over social media and email this past year.

And getting some 80 degree sun for a week when we live in Seattle is not a bad thing either.

I had written an article for a online newsletter  titled “19 tips from an LGS family: Traveling when your child has special needs.”  It was published this week as a two-part article.  Yesterday as we were packing for the trip, I was reminded of all of the things that I told others to do in the article.  I made sure that I did them.  I didn’t think it would be very funny if I forgot to do something that I had told others they should do.  But we are all human and that has happened to everyone, I’m sure.

It was fun to Google the article title and it came up in the search engine!

Nick woke up at 6:30 this morning yelling out, “It’s daylight!”  Well it was 6:30 am at the end of October, so there was no daylight, but he was so excited to get to the airport and onto the plane that he couldn’t sleep anymore.

His joy is contagious, in spite of all of the things on our to-do lists yesterday and today, his smile made both of us happy.

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.
