I’d been a people pleaser since childhood. Being a polite, caring, thoughtful, kind and non-confrontational person was ingrained by my Mother. I didn’t know there was an alternative way to behave and treated everyone with respect and love; except myself. Years of this behavior chipped away at my self-confidence, worth and esteem. (more…)

Love, Love Loved this book. One reason was I grew up in Miami Florida and understand Rose Gardner’s life. if you want to get away from all the political B.S. and enjoy reading about something other than the news, this is a great read. I have always felt like I let people walk all over me because I want to please others and don’t want to be thought of as a bitch.
Reading this opened my eyes to a real change in my attitude about knowing that you can be kind, nice and not let people take you for granted.This is a clear lesson in what NOT to do. This is her story but I bet you see yourself in Rose. Buy it, read it and you will see there is a big lesson to be learned.
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.
