“MORRIS MORRIS: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Jack Kregas

I LOVE this book! I love it for several reasons. For one thing, it’s very well written. Short stories, novelettes, and novellas can be challenging. Jack Kregas succeeds in developing his characters and painting colorful settings with five stars. “Morris Morris” is facing something many elders face in today’s world. No longer able to live alone, financially strapped, they are forced to abandon their independence … Continue reading “MORRIS MORRIS: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Jack Kregas

“Operation Snowdrop” by Michelle Medhat

   I love a book with action and romance and Operation Snowdrop by Michelle Medhat more than fulfills what I look for. With a storyline that could be a current headline, Medhat leads her reader through a top-secret assignment. From the first page, I was drawn into this intense tale. Anti-terrorism agent Matthew Kinley of MI6, British Secret Intelligence, is part of a team that … Continue reading “Operation Snowdrop” by Michelle Medhat

Why stepparent love is a different kind of love: A letter to my stepdaughter

When my husband and I found out we were expecting, he had one main fear – that I wouldn’t love his then six-year-old (my stepdaughter) as if she was my own. I wouldn’t love her “the same” as I loved my son. And he was right, I wouldn’t. To him, this meant that I would love her less. That there would be an enormous disconnect… Continue reading Why stepparent love is a different kind of love: A letter to my stepdaughter

Trigger warning: This article contains accounts of domestic violence. The timeline is blurred, but the results are the same. In 2013, I took in a stray. This stray came in the form of a house-hopping, shaggy haired guitarist who I worked with serving tables. I was in nursing school and admired his “didn’t-give-a-damn” attitude and lack of obligations to anyone but himself. The fact that… Continue reading bruised.

5 Things to Expect as the Parent of a Preemie

When my son was born at 28 weeks gestation, my husband and I were completely unprepared. Being a first time mother and having a perfectly healthy pregnancy up until the day my water broke (in the middle of the psychiatric hospital in which I worked), we had not planned for a situation in which my son would spend his first seven weeks post-birth in the NICU, away from his… Continue reading 5 Things to Expect as the Parent of a Preemie

Hammered: An Enemies to Lovers Romance (Hard n’ Dirty Book 5) by Alexis Alvarez

I must confess; I’m a huge fan of Alexis Alvarez. Her books always grab me from the first paragraph. Hammered is no exception.  As soon as Talia and Dane meet, the reader will feel the electric sparks jump off the page. They have separate agendas, goals that are important to them. But those goals conflict like oil and water. Dane is the foreman of a … Continue reading Hammered: An Enemies to Lovers Romance (Hard n’ Dirty Book 5) by Alexis Alvarez
