My first book is on Audible!

Back in 2011, I self-published my first novel titled,  “A Cottage in Donegal, Mary Doherty’s Story.” I am very grateful for the incredible reception that this book has received. The comments from people all over the world have warmed my heart. Since that amazing beginning, I have felt that there was one thing that was

Have Patience for the Process.

Nick is an artist.  He loves to create.  He doesn’t really specialize in any specific medium or modality.  He loves trying them all.  Through his day program, Nick and his friends get the opportunity to attend Northwest Art Center in Duvall.  They offer many different experiences with art and Nick loves it.  The art teachers

Nick sings.

The doctors told us originally that Nick probably wouldn’t ever walk or talk.  Yet not only did he learn to do both of these things, he sings. On the way home from church he was singing away and I captured a brief video of him singing “I Know That My Redeemer Lives.” I couldn’t get

Sometimes it does take a village!

I have heard this African proverb quoted many times.  It is so popular now that we can just say, “it takes a village” and others will understand that we are talking about community, cooperation and group responsibility. This past week we experienced this.  We had friends staying with us at our home in Donegal and as

Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

The beaches here in Ireland are unbelievable.  The sand is soft, the scenery is breathtaking and the water is clear and sparkling.  When the sun shines, that is.  We have friends visiting with us right now and Tuesday was the day to spend at the beach. Nick has always loved being near the shoreline.  Sitting

What I want to be when I grow up.

This week we attended our grandson’s graduation from Pre-School.  Everyone in his class is moving on to kindergarten.  It was a big deal for everyone, the kids, the parents, family members, and the teachers.  The best part for me was when the head teacher introduced each child.  What she did was incredible.  She had asked

Inspired by the Great Masters.

Images representing the statue created by Michelangelo and unveiled in 1504, are everywhere in Florence.  You can purchase small statues, pictures, postcards, even aprons and potholders.  There have been many great artists, architects and scientists who have lived and worked in Florence.  The city is very proud of two of them, Leonardo da Vinci and

Today was a good day!

I really enjoy spending time with the attendees at the MIRCI Conferences.  They are women from all over the globe who come together once a year for three days to discuss current issues surrounding women, feminism and motherhood.  It is inspiring to be in the presence of such dedicated, intelligent women, to discuss their concerns

Empowering Mothers.

Tomorrow I am presenting at the MIRCI (Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement) conference in Florence, Italy.  Today as I reviewed my notes and slides for the presentation titled, “Empowering Mothers of Special Needs Children,” I revisited some of the memories and experiences of my 38-year journey of being Nick’s mom.  I am grateful

Today, do what is possible.

Yesterday, after six weeks of working on riding our stationary bike, I rode 26 minutes.  At the beginning of January, I was able to ride about 5 minutes.  I had worked up to 15 minutes every day after a few weeks, but then I fell off the wagon and didn’t ride for a week.  So

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.
