A must read for Recovering Doormats.
Author Terena Scott nails it. Her thoughts about Carrie Fisher echo mine. Exactly.
How many times have we accepted others views without question? Allowed their thoughts to reign supreme and leave our own opinions unspoken. Or IF we speak out, and our ideas are met with disapproval, contempt, and invalidated, remain silent and allow others to feed our self-doubts. (more…)
I’m so honored having Dr. Terry Segal with us providing professional insight for many problems recovering doormats face. She’ll be with us every Friday until the year’s end.

Four years ago today, I began my site on Facebook. A few months later I expanded to this blog site. In late November of 2014 My Life as a Doormat, a novel I’d spent 10 years developing, was published.
In 2015 I started my book tour, many signings and events at Barnes and Nobles in Florida. I also opened an on-line-store on Cafe Press. I’m a little technology challenged, but by some miracle by the end of 2015 I managed to get onto most social media platforms. I also began work on my second novel; a sequel to My Life as a Doormat.
During 2016 I continued touring in Florida, and included New Jersey, New York City and Asheville North Carolina. August’s highlight was being interviewed on a PBS TV show called Between The Covers. Since I was an actor long before writing, I was very excited to do the show, and my interest for getting back into ‘show biz’ renewed.
So here I am, 4 years, a book, and 70, 400 followers later, wondering what to do next?
Many thanks to all sharing my vision and supporting my journey.
Calling all North Carolina doormats!
I’ll be at Barnes & Noble on October 15th. See below for details.

“Please join us in welcoming author Rose Gardner who will be discussing and signing her book My Life as a Doormat. In this fictionalized biography, it is 1980 and naïve Rose has moved to New York to pursue her acting career. Anxious and uncertain, Rose must learn to stand up and speak for herself — the rallying cry of The Society for Recovering Doormats!”
