We underestimate others.

We have all heard the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”  The warning is to not make quick judgements about people.  If we don’t dig beneath the surface, we can underestimate them, which also means we can undervalue them. At first glance, in a public setting, Nick is an adult male, typically

Look guys, I rich!

I received another life lesson in perspective from Nick.  You might remember that almost two years ago, he negotiated with his dad and I to receive $20 a week from us.  Well the past couple of weeks have been hectic in the Gremmert household and I forgot to give him his money.  The other afternoon,

We never know what today will bring.

Every day when we wake up, it is a clean slate. Oh we have made plans and scheduled events, but as my mom always told me, “man proposes, God disposes!” Nick woke us up last night at about 2 am coughing and sneezing. We did get back to sleep after a little while, but this

Nick is mad at me!

We are working on getting all the Christmas decorations put up. Nick is impatient. Some of the lights need to be replaced.  He also doesn’t understand that we need to take time to sleep and eat and do work. He just wants the decorations to be done. The main problem is that our light strings

“Beat it, Dad!”

Nick often catches us off guard with the things that he says.  The other morning he was still in his bed.  Arden had gone in and woke him up to give him the morning seizure meds.  Nick kept trying to lay down on his pillow after Arden had sat him up.  Finally Arden said, “Are you

“I like that dress.”

Today I was reminded of another great truth by Nick. Arden, Nick and I were watching a local figure skating competition this afternoon. The competitors were not elite level skaters. Most of the kids were pre-teens who were at the beginning levels of competitive ice skating. There were lots of mistakes and falls. I was

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.
