It’s Here, A Redhead Looks at 60! Available at

I am so excited about this book!  I have been procrastinating–my specialty, so it’s about time!

Here’s an appropriate poem for you from A Redhead Looks at 60!  Enjoy!


My Freudian Slip Is Showing!

If writing is therapy, then I’ve been

Standing up my “shrink” for some time!

My fixations are simple, broken down into two things:

I want to lose weight and I must have chocolate

Now is that a conflict of interest?

But getting back to that writing thing

It can be easy at times

Words flowing from my pen like water from a font

Usually my attempts to write

Are like trying to cross a river in a leaky boat

I start out, I sink; I go back to the start

But my best work involves distraction, the art of

Subjugating my true desire with anything else

To prevent picking up the pen

Essentially, I have a Master’s degree in

The Ostrich Technique—perhaps you’ve heard of it?
