The Trials of Life

A lot has happened since I originally started this blog. My mother’s Alzheimer’s developed to the point that she had to move in with me. My daughter’s mental health issues also worsened, to the point I had to let he drop out of high school in the middle of 10th grade this year. I am fortunate enough to be able to work full time from home, but the challenges of doing so while also caring for an ungrateful and demanding dementia patient and a teenage girl with major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder are, to say the least, daunting. Not to mention the husband, son, 3 dogs, varying number of rats, and 1 tortoise that need caring for. Needless to say, my hands have been full!

I haven’t had time to devote to my beloved Blog, or Twitter. I have still kept busy on my Facebook page, though not as active as I would hope to be. I hope to be able to get active on my Blog again in the future, but that future is pretty muddy. In the meantime, please visit my Facebook page. You can also connect with me directly on Facebook. You can find the link along the side over there ==>>>

Also, remember, the digital version of my book is free forever now. You can find it on just about every e-reader platform available, I believe. Check over there ==>>  for links to all the various ways to down load it. The paper back edition is as cheap as I can make it and I know it’s available at Amazon, Create Space, and Barnes and Noble.

Peace to everyone!

Free e-book for Suicide Prevention and Awareness


Letting Go has been revised and updated as of 9/17/2014. If you downloaded it before, you may want to update your current version for free. The print version has also been updated.

When Dan put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, he thought it would all be over, but he soon learns that in death, just like in life, you don’t always get what you want.

As he watches the consequences of his suicide he meets Tar, a benevolent spirit who tries to help him let go of his life on Earth and move on to ‘real Heaven’. A dark, tormented spirit is drawn to Dan’s fiancée, Anne, as she struggles with her grief and guilt, becoming her constant companion.

Dan hopes that with Tar’s help, he can find a way to save Anne and her three-year-old daughter from the shadowy spirit. However, things aren’t always what they seem with spirits, and Dan begins to wonder who it truly haunts.

Donation Of My Proceeds To The Suicide Prevention Lifeline

ba5fb-suicide-prevention-logo-1I have meant to do this for a while, but have not had a lot of free time to devote to my blog. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on Facebook, just because it’s faster. But, with the recent and tragic death of Robin Williams to suicide, I felt it was now the time to act.

I am attaching my tax documents to verify my “profits” from the sale of my book. The book was only for sale through Amazon as Kindle e-book, or a paper back book.

On paper, I made $99.36. In actuality, I didn’t earn any profits, because I spent slightly more than that amount on publishing it, lol.  🙂

That’s fine by me, however! Today, I donated $150.00 to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in memory of Daniel Rieske, who my book is lovingly dedicated to. I do also have a recurring donation of $20.00 per month, which I’ve been donating for over eight years now in his memory.

20140813_141108I will be setting the book’s price to free…just as soon I figure out how to do that on Amazon. Of course, I can’t set the paper back book to free, but I will set it to the lowest point I can.

If you, or someone you know needs help, please call the Lifeline. They are there for you 24/7. Your life matters. No one will be better off without you, even if it may seem otherwise.
