At 47, I am a midlife mom, a grandmother, a writer, a singer, a blogger. I have written a memoir entitled Only Good Things, and am co-editing an anthology The Shame Prom with Amy Ferris (Seal Press, 2012). My essays can be found in Chicken Soup for the Soul- Answered Prayers and Character Consciousness, as well as online at iPInion Syndicate, The Next Family, and AOL Patch. My blog Truth and Consequences explores the truth as I see it in every day life. I am baring my soul...and seeing what comes of it.
