A vacation is a tremendous ordeal for Emma, who doesn't like to venture outside her comfort zone. It is no comfort to her that the backdrop of that vacation is the glorious Italian city of Naples and the breath-taking Amalfi coastline. 
Emma is particular about hygiene, nutrition and the safeguarding of her personal space. In fact, unlike Jay, her husband, Emma is not too crazy about people in general. 
Jay is Emma's greatest admirer. He is an incorrigible optimist, as well as an ardent world traveler. For the most, Jay is naively blind to the depths of Emma's quirkiness and eccentricities. However, even he is beginning to understand that the never-ending obstacles that she constantly sets up for herself are getting increasingly out of control....

Mystery, Mayhem, Madness..
Margaritas & Mexico

One Man's Epic Journey across two Continents and four Countries with 50 years of Adventure. But,1986 changed everything forever. "It's all good until it turns bad." One event devastated the lives of 19 Students, 3 Chaperones and 1 Bus Driver. Was it the Tequila???

Thinking about sending your "Kids" to Paradise Unsupervised? THINK AGAIN!!!

EXCERPT from CHAPTER 1

I boarded the bus having a bit of difficulty due to the metal support brace that I had fixed to my right knee. I looked at my "amigos," a word we had learned on this trip to Mexico, we each used it loosely - each person, place or thing that we encountered was our Amigo.

"Sorry for being the last person."

It was 8:12 a.m., we were supposed to be gone and on the asphalt broken highway back to life as we knew it no later than 8:00 a.m. There was a silence of which I have never heard before nor have ever heard since. I trapped a bee with my thumb that had been swarming around my beer either attracted to the fruit inside my bottle or the rotten salsa that was smeared on the outside.

"Still nothing from Tina?" The words came slurred from my dry swollen, partly scabbed lips, which had enjoyed too much sun and salty margaritas.

My question was answered by the anguished looks of my fellow spring breakers. Tina had not surfaced. The last time any of us, including her two roommates had seen her was 36 hours earlier.

This is "My Bad Tequila."

This spring getaway was supposed to be a fun experience and a pleasant memory. It ended up being more than a memory; it was an unpleasant walk through life....

"a thoughtful think piece....Heartfelt reflections on the lessons and strength to be gained from grief and loss" Kirkus Reviews

Loss can either break you open or break you down - Your choice.  If you choose to allow it to break you open - You can discover who you truly were meant to be before time and the world made you forget!

How Learning To Say Goodbye Taught Me How To Live is a narrative journal of the many spiritual lessons and gifts I received during a period of tremendous loss in my life, and how they were put to the test during my best friend's battle with cancer.  It chronicles the close friendship we shared during this traumatic time and how we worked to stay conscious and move forward with our inner growth despite our pain.

When we are asked to say goodbye to what was, we are offered an opportunity to experience what can be  - if we do the work. As you read the story, you will begin to understand your own fears and inner struggles and what fuels them enabling you to transform and finally move past them.  It will also remind you of the gifts that are always available if you will just stay awake. The greatest gift being the discovery of your authentic, loving, powerful self and what can be for you!

 Each chapter highlights the various inner battles as well as the gifts that are revealed during difficult times. The lessons include issues of control, judgment, needing to be right, forgiveness, self-love, receiving and the power of our beliefs.   The gifts include partnership with your Higher Self, true intimacy, the power of play and laughter, faith and patience, angel whispers, co –creating, and much more. I include at the end of each chapter a list of questions and thoughts that aided me to go deeper with the work.

"a virtual hug...enriching" BlueInk
"powerful insights...full of wisdom...life-changing" Foreword Clarion
"enlightening self-discovery process" Kirkus

You can do all the programming, affirmations, and techniques you want to get a better life, but if you don't love yourself, it will not change a damn thing.  You will still feel the same way about yourself tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that.

            The bottom line is the most important relationship you will ever have is the relationship you have with yourself.  This relationship can be a rewarding one when rooted in self-love, or it can be toxic one when not.  So, what is self-love? Why is it so important? And most importantly, how do you find it?

            The Heart of the Matter answers these questions and more.  It takes the esoteric concept of self-love and makes it accessible by clearly defining the three necessary components of this love. Learn how to reconnect to these components and live a life rooted in self-love by: 

·      Discovering the transformational tools that are available within all of us.

·      Learning how to use these tools to uncover what you really think and feel about yourself, the world around you, and beyond, and more importantly why.

·      Transforming the wounded parts of self that have been separated from this love through practical steps and exercises for healing and forgiving the past.

·      Empowering yourself to make more loving and conscious choices about what you believe and therefore what you will feel and experience.

                       We all are searching for more love in our lives. The Heart of the Matter, through its teachings and exercises, exposes the truth that the love we have been desperately seeking was inside us all along – we just needed to know where to look.  The Heart of the Matter not only shows you where to look but also gives you a road map on how to get there

Deep in a bayou of Louisiana, there existed a hidden plot of land. Outwardly, the beauty of those two acres was overwhelmingly peaceful. It was covered with large magnolias, ancient oaks, and low flowering shrubs. A small lake with cobalt blue water flowed gently past the shore. Although it appeared calm, this land was not a friendly place. Folklore from the area traced the tales of violence and murder back as far as the Louisiana Purchase. Yes, Thomas Jefferson may have made the "Deal of the Century" but the Gautier family obtained the strange land. Many people died over the years attempting to own and tame this raw place. Ancestors from Paris eventually inherited it. The young Gautier family fell in love with such a magical location. Dreams of building the most beautiful home in the New Orleans area enticed them. They planned everything even down to the two perfect white-blond haired children with azure blue eyes who would play in the great halls of their magnificent antebellum home. What they did not understand was the power that existed there. Once the house was built, strange things began to occur. A bond between "House" and Claire, the original owner, tied the young woman strongly to the mansion. Her children became a part of this strange alliance. Doom and death waited hidden in the shiny, white structure. Was it the land, the house, the history, or the family who created the unusual events? Innocent people die to discover the truth. ...

Latest Poem

Sitting in deep sorrow, never thought he’d leave.
Never heeded his warnings, didn't listen.

Stay home with me this evening, no, I needed to dance.
Didn't heed his warning, wasn’t listening.

Be with me this evening, a cozy spot I know.
Couldn’t have been a warning, why listen.

I love you he said in every way he could.
How could that be a warning, never listened.

He left for work that morning, the kiss that said goodbye
lasted longer than usual, could have listened.

Got home he was missing, belongings long gone too.
I looked back at the warnings. Should have listened.

Now sitting deep in sorrow no longer wanting to dance.
Wishing we'd shared that cozy spot wanting another chance,

To listen.
