There are numerous blogs that warrant attention, praise, and awards. I don’t know if mine deserve all three, but I am asking my readers to decide. If you think they do, please vote for me at this link starting tomorrow. You have to be a member of Goodreads, which is well worth your time, whether as a reader or writer. Winners go to the Book Expo in NYC and the only way I would be able to go is if I win this contest. Being that there are so many great bloggers who have many more readers than I do, I probably don’t have much of a chance. However, magic happens and I do work hard pounding out words from my soul and brain to touch your lives. I want us all to “…get up, walk, fall down, but meanwhile, keep dancing.” ~ Hillel
I am the author of The Irish Dresser Series that includes The Irish Milliner and Norah, The Making of an Irish-American Woman in 19th Century New York (Fireship Press), two young adult historical fiction novels, The Irish Dresser and Hope in New York City (White Mane), and Pavlova in a Hat Box, Sweet Memories & Desserts. I’ve written a screenplay, The Irish Dresser series, adapted from these works and I’m ready to sell! My historical fiction novel, Catharine, Queen of the Tumbling Waters, a story about a real life Native American/French woman set during the French and Indian War and American Revolution in Pennsylvania and New York is being released in April 2023 by Bedazzled Publishers. I write plays, screenplays, essays, and short stories. I am a native of the Finger Lakes region in New York and reside in New Hampshire. I enjoy reading, writing, Irish set dancing, waltzing, walking, learning about nature, traveling, painting, baking fanciful desserts, kayaking, creating events for food, dance, and fund raising, invisible volunteering, laughing until it hurts, and dreaming about possibilities.
