ON GRACE Wins Big!

What a year this has been for my debut novel ON GRACE! It's been a dream come true. Pardon the trite, overused expression but sometimes those expressions really are the best way to phrase things. So, yes, a dream come true. The launch of the book led to wonderful press and reader reviews, exciting and well-attended events, and awards! ON GRACE [...]

My Favorite Holiday Gift Guides

Last year, I published An Author's Holiday Gift Guide which featured such gems as the Lululemon Run: Swiftly long sleeve Ts, Yonanas, and loads of books. This year, I'm feeling a bit inundated with holiday gift idea lists so I've decided that rather than create my own, I'd curate the best of the best so you don't have to look [...]

Thanksgiving Musings… and a Story

First, That Story I Promised I’m excited that a piece I wrote called “A Mom’s Thanksgiving Story of ‘Will’ and ‘Grace’” is on the Parents channel of The Huffington Post. I hope you enjoy it! The only frustrating part is that they omitted they caption I wrote for the photo which clarified why the boys aren’t, as I wrote in [...]

HuffPost Style Channel Goes Curly!

I'm thrilled that I'm now going to be a blogger on The Huffington Post! My first post, about having curly hair, went live yesterday and I was so excited that it was featured on the homepage of the Style channel. So far, besides a couple of expected snarky comments from people who don't think my hair is curly enough so [...]

Dear Twitter, I wanted you to know how much I like you. I think I might even love you. I know you have no idea who I am, considering you’re so popular and everything and have like hundreds of millions of people into you.

I’ll Never Get Another Blowout (yeah, right): Tales From a Curly Girl

Last week there was an article in the New York Times about curly hair. I am always drawn to articles about curly hair, because, well, I have curly hair and if you have curly hair, then you know what I mean. Curly hair is not technically considered an affliction. Afflictions are really bad. They are not life-and-death situations but they [...]

Labor Day #Kindle eBook Deals

This has been an amazing summer. My kids all loved their various camps. The weather in the northeast was beautiful. I got away a few times. And the best part of the summer for me was that I finished the first draft of my next manuscript. (YAY!) Hopefully I'll have some updates on that project soon. As I go into [...]

My Times of India Interview on Work-Life Balance

In early July I was contacted by Nona Walia, a journalist from The Times of India, which is the world's best-selling English language daily newspaper.

(I wrote a short blog [...]

Are You a Bad Mom If You Send Your Kids to Camp?

Yesterday on THE MOMS Sirius XM Stars 106 radio show, hosts Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein were talking about how they had sent their kids to camp that morning and it was, essentially, a nice relief. A longer day for them to pursue what they want to do: work and other personal pursuits. They received a call from a woman who chewed [...]
