Keep on learning.

Nick loves being around little children.  He enjoys watching them run around playing.  He learns so much from them.  Last night we had the pleasure of Madi who is 8 and Bridger who is 4, staying over night with Granny, Grandpa and Uncle Nick.  We ate good food.  There was some healthy food, but mostly good food.  We sat in the hot tub, and we played. We had a plastic bowling pin tournament and ring toss tournament.  There was a dance party and story time.  Nick loved it all.

When we were settling down to get ready for bed, I saw Nick do something new.  It was incredible.  Bridger was on the floor playing with his super hero figurines and Madi’s stuffed animals.  He was playacting, each character was talking to the other characters.  They were saving the world.  Nick was watching and was holding one of his small model airplanes.  He looked down at the plane in his hand and then looked up at Bridger and then he said the most amazing thing.  He said, “I a jet pilot, I coming to save the world too.”  He was using his imagination.  It was another developmental milestone that just naturally happened.  Of course he is 33 years older than Bridger, so it had taken a while, but it happened.  I was so excited.  Quietly excited, mind you, I didn’t want to ruin the moment.

I believe that everyone can learn new things no matter how old they are.  Nick continually proves this to me.

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.
