Nick is doing great, I am getting there!

After almost 2 days of watching him closely, it seems that his ankle is only sprained and as long as he has on his high top hiking boots, he can walk.  This is a huge relief.  We are being careful with him but he is doing ok.

I am very grateful to have received all the well wishes and messages of support over the last two days.  As I read the heartfelt comments I realized that it was not easy for me to accept the compliments even though I was feeling so empty inside.

Then a huge realization dawned upon me.  I can’t fill that empty feeling inside with external comments and feelings.  The feelings and healings must come from me.

So that is my work, to give myself the same support and encouragement and love that all of my friends have shown me over the years, but especially over the last couple of days.

Brene Brown teaches that the fear of disconnection (aka shame) will always exist, and that we can practice shame-resilience everyday.  Shining light on shame will bring it out of darkness.  She says, “Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”   I have learned a lot from reading her books and listening to her TED talks.

I love this chance I have to share my thoughts on this blog.  Thank you for reading it and connecting with 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.
