Who is Nick J.?

My second son, Nick lives with his dad Arden and me, Eva, his mom in Carnation, Washington, USA.  He is 37 years old and we take care of him.  It is a big job.  We have had a lot of help along the way.

We raised our 4 kids and quite a few other peoples kids, so he has a lot of siblings that love him.  Nick has traveled with us to many beautiful places on our planet.  He loves, loves, loves airplanes and airports, which is great for us.

I know that he is more popular than me.  Whenever I post a picture of him to Facebook or comment on what he has said or done, others like that.  For someone who has difficulty verbally articulating what he is feeling, he gets his message across and it has a big impact.

When he was born, I knew right away that there was something different about him.  I was a young mom of 22.  He was my second son.  Being his mom has changed me.  He has taught me many things.  I have learned to look past the first impressions, the outward appearance, the obvious behaviors and see the person.

I hope that we all commit to looking past the obvious and see the person.  Try it, you will be changed.

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.
