I’m pleased to share with you that I’m a blogger for the Huffington Post! Here’s the link to where you can find my posts.
I began blogging here in August 2010. It was a scary but exciting proposition then. It’s still exciting, and the only frightening thing is, perhaps, the fear of running out of things to say. So far, so good.
And here’s the icing on the cake: In the three years I’ve been blogging, I’ve been Freshly Pressed FOUR times! Here are the links to my FP’d posts: On Notice, The Fake Family Tree, Broken Hearts & The Road Not Taken, and The Race is On. Fourth time is the charm, right? Honestly, how much joy can a girl take?
The honors continued when, I received The Versatile Blogger Award. (Thanks, Writingfeemail’s Blog!) Then, I was the proud recipient of the Kreativ Blogger Award! You can read all about it and find out who I in turn bestowed the award upon, in my post, London Actress Picks Me! Since then, I’ve been honored with four more awards: the No Hoops, two more Versatile Blogger Awards, and the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Awards.
I’m a baby boomer so I’m sure you can guess at my age—somewhere between 50 and one foot in the grave. And no, I am not over the hill yet, if that’s what you’re thinking. I’m divorced, the mother of two very grown children (the younger just graduated from college!). A former New Yorker with an East Coast attitude living in THE most laid-back city ever, San Diego–and loving it!
I love getting my Broadway fill by seeing shows at the La Jolla Playhouse and Old Globe theater and, if I hear of a play bound for Broadway, believe me, I’m there. I also enjoy dancing, especially tap dancing. and Zumba. If you ever see someone tap dancing in a long line at the bank or grocery story, that’s probably me. And if you’re still curious about me, please read my post, 10 Things You Don’t Know About Me.
A great writer once said, “, when first we practice to deceive!”
I’ve been living by these words all my life. For me, writing is the art of deception–exaggerating truths, reconstructing memories and filling in the blanks. Embellishing to make a point! As a kid growing up in Queens, I loved telling tall tales, stretching the truth. I think I was good at it because people believed me. It’s probably why I always wanted to be a writer. It’s fun. So, welcome to my life, my observations, and my stories. Welcome to my Tangled Web!
