I am grateful for technology.

Change is hard for Nick. He likes to be at home either in Carnation or in Carndonagh. He is happiest when both of his parents are with him – all day long. Well to be constantly surrounded by our loved ones is not realistic so he is often disappointed. Unfortunately this also leads to anxiety for him and he perseverates with questions about the missing person. It can be difficult for the one at home care taking.

I am in NYC for a few days with my friend JoanE. We are seeing Barbra Streisand TONIGHT!!! Ok I am obviously excited. Nick is not! Arden told me that he is sad that I am gone.

I tried to talk to him on the phone and he was still not really talking to me. Last night I was able to skype with him and that did make him happy. He was talking and smiling and all was well in the world.

It made me think about how miraculous it is that we can video chat with someone thousands of miles away. Sometimes I am frustrated with the demands on my time that being connected brings and then I am reminded that there is balance in life. The blessings are there if we look for them.

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.
