My newest book, Felicity and the Scary Bear

Felicity and the Scary Bear (c) 2017
I am very glad that I have the chance to announce that my fourth Felicity book, and seventh book altogether, has been recently published.

In Felicity and the Scary Bear, Felicity and Cairn are determined not to let anything scare them on Halloween. But then they meet someone in the woods that they weren't expecting to see, and find themselves on yet another unexpected, and rather scary adventure!

Harriet Tubman

One of my heroes from history was a lady who was only five feet tall, suffered from narcolepsy because of an accident in her youth, and was born a slave.

Harriet Tubman
Harriet Tubman, despite all her supposed weaknesses, escaped slavery and then returned again and again to the south to lead others to freedom.

One inspiring quote from her, among many, was "Twasn't me, 'twas the Lord! I always told Him, 'I trust to you. I don't know where to go or what to do, but I expect You to lead me,' an' He always did."

Mother Teresa: Do It Anyway

Do It Anyway

 People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.
            If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
            If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.
           If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.
            What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.
            If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
            The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.
         Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.
         In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.


The above poem, attributed to Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity was probably based on an original composition by Kent Keith. You can find both poems here.

Life: A poem by Mother Theresa


Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it. 
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
