Setting Boundaries: Why Is It Hard?

Setting Boundaries: Why Is It Hard?

I seem to be asking a lot of questions lately–hard questions that don’t have easy answers, like the post about whether books need romance or at the very least, realistic teen romance. Why is realistic romance important? Now, I’m on to boundaries. This is actually a topic near and dear to my heart because I AM TERRIBLE AT SETTING BOUNDARIES. I set a boundary. Someone will break it, and I […]

Millions of the orange and black winged creatures swirled in the air and covered the entire cathedral. The dream woke me and would not let me fall […]

A Child With Cancer Makes Others’ World Series Dreams Come True

It’s been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals have been in the World Series. The last time was 1985–they played and BEAT my favorite team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

The True Story of Maggie Mae: My New Picture Book
