help for the jaded reader

March 14, 2017 | 1 Comment

Shout out to @RT_magazine for this so-thoughtful review of Dockside.

A wonderfully written, beautiful love story with a few sharp edges and a bunch of marvelously imperfect characters, this is one of Wiggs’s finest efforts to date. It’s sure to leave an indelible impression on even the most jaded reader.

Fans of Daisy Bellamy will get a glimpse of how the trouble all started. And you’re in luck–the e-book is just $1.99 for a limited time. Happy reading!

happy birthday to a personal hero

Guess who was born on this day in 1904.

He said, "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities." #DrSeuss

This print is one of my most prized possessions–it’s his sketch for the endpapers of The Cat in the Hat Songbook. When I was six years old, I taught myself to read music just so I
could play the songs on the piano.

A reminder that #MotivationIsEverything.

And nevertheless, #ShePersisted.
