I get so excited when we can dress up at school, especially this year. It’s been hard for me to be home when I’d rather be out and about, to wear a mask, and to be unable to hug my friends! I am a unabashed hugger. But I get to return to the 80s tomorrow, […]Read More Homecoming Week
I am honestly waiting for a Tyrannosaurus Rex to come marching down my street before this year is out dragging a slew of carnivorous dinosaurs behind him. I have survived house arrest, trying to breathe and teach through a mask (my history book teaches that water plus carbon dioxide equals carbonic acid, but who’s worrying?) […]Read More Another Hurricane–yep, it’s still 2020
Thanks to the dreaded “RONA” the 2020 Olympic Games have been postponed for a year. My novella “No Second Place” is a quick read with great reviews. Shameless self-promotion: my sister, Jean Driscoll, was a Paralympic athlete at a couple Olympic Games and then attended a couple more as part of the President’s delegation, so […]Read More 2021 Olympic Games
I woke up this morning in a comfy bed next to the husband I love. My two daughters live with us in a safe neighborhood three blocks from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. I have a great family that loves me. Of course there are some characters, but since I’m a writer, this is a […]Read More Freedom
For a second, Kindred wondered why Castillo was still single. He was in great shape for a thirty-something and except for his full head of wavy hair, he was a dead ringer for Bruce Willis in “Die Hard.” The thought scared her, and she stuffed this observation down deep where it should never resurface. Suddenly […]Read More Comments, please–would you keep reading?
James Matheson and Andrew Reed were the ones who said America was great because she was good, and that if we cease to be good, we’ll lose our greatness. I don’t live in a bubble. I know there is evil in the world, and this country has often failed to live up to the wisdom […]Read More America Is Great Because…

One thing that has slapped me across the face during this COVID-19 pandemic is that there are a slew of people who assume too much and have never been taught how to properly relate to others. Have we completely lost the ability to explain things? Is there no way to think things through before sending […]Read More Mercy!
I’m very proud of my Irish heritage though I’m a true American mosaic. Talk about a people group that was abused and bounced back–if you ever get a chance to go the the Heritage Center in Skibbereen, you will get quite an education. The Potato Famine was no such thing. Food was being shipped to […]Read More Treat Yourself on St. Patrick’s week
I am a book hoarder. The head of my bed is full of books. I have a kindle with dozens of books on it. I have bookshelves full of books. If that isn’t enough, I also write stories. I love short stories, historical fiction, romance, political nonfiction, sci-fi, and murder mysteries. From Terri Blackstock to […]Read More Three Novels I Think You’ll Enjoy
