The Long Way

everything I wanted was on back order

BUT THEN AT 40 IT ALL ARRIVED AT ONCE: A HUSBAND, STEPKIDS, AND TWINS

My Book

We Didn’t Name You Grace for a Reason, my recently completed memoir, is now available for agents and publishers.

 

With touching tenderness and inspiration, We Didn’t Name You Grace for a Reason chronicles my fortieth year, when I became a wife, stepmom, and mother of premature identical twins born in precarious health. It was the scariest, wildest and most beautiful year of my life. The journey, which I deliver in a powerfully raw yet lighthearted manner, is as much about having kids late in life and blending a family as it is about my family of origin and quirky upbringing. Everything converged the year I turned forty. As a late-life parent I finally grew up; I learned about the power of hope and the value of family, and what can happen when we forgive and accept others — especially ourselves.
