Naki Family

I just wanted to pass this information on to any and all who could help.

Abby and I were in countless high school drama productions together. Her joy and energy was endless. That energy must be serving her well as she now has 6 daughters and chronicles life with them on her blog, Six Maile Chix. Two weeks ago, the Maile family unexpectedly lost their daddy. Here's some information on Naki Maile and his tragic death at the age of 32.

And here's how you can help. To make a donation to help his 6 little girls, visit: Please keep the Maile girls in your thoughts.

Thanks so much for reading,

Poetry Publication

I normally don't talk about my writing stuff here, but I'd like to spread the word about this fantastic text.

This is the first of two poetry publications I expect to have out before the new year. One of my poems appears in this anthology along with poetry from my amazing colleagues at Absolute Write. All proceeds go toward maintenance of AW. It's a great gift for the readers in your life and very reasonably priced!

Absolute Poetry Vol. 1 by the Poets of Absolute Write: A collection of poems from the poets of the Absolute Write poetry forum.

I'm particularly proud of this poem and extremely honored to be included in such fine company. I also can't wait for the next publication to be announced. The theme is fantastic and the poetry collection is one I'm going to read again and again.

This is me, smiling :) Thanks for reading,
