Published!!!

I have been writing and submitting material for articles. And having a wonderful time doing it! I was hired as a staff writer for a local newspaper and my article "Latinos In Action" was published in December. I was also notified by JoLyn Brown that my story "A Visiting Teaching Angel" was chosen to be published in the book A Circle of Sisters in the spring of 2013. I will have another article in the local newspaper's education section published in the next week or two.
"What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve!" I've always wanted to get published and now by thinking about it all the time, believing in myself and doing something about it by writing and submitting articles on a regular basis it is happening!

Book Review for Tres Leches Cupcakes by Josi Kilpack






I loved the suspense in Tres Leches Cupcakes! I was on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down the last few chapters. Josi has developed a pattern of increasing her skill with words with every book she publishes. Sadie has a knack for getting herself into trouble. She is undercover for the BLM and ends up right in the middle of murder, mystery and getting herself kidnapped. Up to now she's had Caro--Pete's cousin in Santa Fe, as her assistant. To protect Caro and to prevent any further wedges between her and Caro's husband Rex, she leaves for Albuquerque. This however, just complicates things. Caro tries to figure it out on her own and ends up getting herself kidnapped as well. Can Sadie find Caro before something awful happens to her? Narrowly escaping with her life, Sadie asks Rex for help. They put themselves in harms way to save Caro from certain death. This is the best of the series so far! I can't wait for what Josi has in store for Sadie next.

Book Review of Athena—Book 4 of the Newport Ladies Book Club Series

Book Review of Athena—Book 4 of the Newport Ladies Book Club Series
Athena is a successful woman and is quite content to be single. She owns her own business and keeps herself busy with work—lots of work. Her casual relationship with Karl is suddenly at an end when she hesitates at his desire to take it to the next level. He accuses her of being a workaholic. Trying to prove otherwise; she joins a book club, and in the process, meets Grey—the owner of a used book store. Her mother also thinks she needs to make a change in her life. She tries to help by setting Athena up with single Greek men. Athena realizes that she needs to do things differently.
The changes that come, however, are not what Athena expected—tragedy hits her family and she is needed to help care for her ailing father. Through it all she receives support and love from her new-found friends at the book club. Opening her heart to others, helps her to see how much she really does need Grey.
Athena is very well written and my favorite so far!
