On our way to our weekly music lesson on Sunday, my daughter sat in the back seat of the car lamenting that we never do anything interesting on Sundays and that she needed more steps. Apparently, unbeknownst to me, Sundays in our family are "boring." So, you can guess what I suggested - let's check out a new bookstore!

Friday Fun: Bookstagramming – A Story of Art and Mockery

Prior to taking the plunge into the world of being a published author, I was unfamiliar with many things - the publishing industry in general, book marketing, social media, etc. Now things are different.

Traveling with The Travelers: San Francisco Edition Day 1 – A Bookish Trip

When I visited New York City in December, I took my book, The Travelers, along for some photo ops.
