Review: The Hate U Give – A Powerful Star in the YA Universe

Yes, young adult books can be powerful, compelling and entertaining. The Hate U Give is just that. It's also one of the rare books I would classify as "illuminating," maybe even "life-changing." Here is why anyone who wants to understand others should read it...

Because We Need a Little More Empathy in the World…Pick Up a Book!

This is one of those whiplash days where my normally sunny self looks at the world and says - what is wrong with people? I have a theory - it's a problem of empathy.

T-shirt Tuesday: Fierce Women Who Inspire

Her-Stories: One More Salute to Women to Celebrate Women’s History Month

It's the last day of Women's History Month. Where does the time go? For this farewell to Women's History Month (until next year!), I'd like to highlight a few pioneering women who have served or are currently serving in the US military.

Friday Fun: Books By Funny Women to Make You Laugh Out Loud

Have you ever heard people say women just aren't as funny as men? (Usually it's the men who say this.) Luckily, I am a woman and I find women very funny. And, since it's Friday and by Friday I'm always read for at minimum a laugh, let's talk about funny women and, in particular, their funny books.

Monday Blogs: Best Bada#! Female Characters and Why We Love Them

I love strong female characters. And since it's women's history month, I thought a blog about some of my favorite badass female characters in TV, movies and literature and why they rock, would be fun. So here it goes!

Thursday Thoughts: A Day in My Life as a Mother, Writer, Wife, Editor, Resistor and Human Being in One Paragraph (With Pictures!)

Wake up to my dog taking a running leap off the bed while barking so loudly it makes the windows rattle and all because a squirrel scurried across the roof. Reluctantly get up and throw on a t-shirt and sweat pants...
