#1 International Bestseller The Expert Success Solution

Today is special.  I became a published author fulfilling a long-held goal.  Funny thing is, it happened by ‘accident’.  Just a year ago, I was invited to Las Vegas for Rick Frishman’s Author 101 event.  It was only two weeks away but something inside told me I should go and I did.  Liking spontaneity, I loved the fact it was only a few days away.  Again, I felt that flutter inside when the collaborative project was announced and knew it […] Read more »

The Carnival Is Over

Carnival

‘The Carnival Is Over’ was a 60s song by The Seekers and told a romantic story of  short-lived but life-changing romance.  Our carnival is over because of murder at the Carnival, which sounds more like an Agatha Christie title, doesn’t it?  Sadly, Gloucester Carnival really is over, cancelled because of the violent and purposeless murder of a vulnerable 50-year-old man. The Carnival runs for two weeks every Summer and this year, like every other, was due to climax with a […] Read more »

An ‘Accidental’ Accident?

On March 28, 2012, as Brad Ray, daughter Gabby (18) and son Austyn (16) drove home from the courthouse in Ohio even the bright sunshine couldn’t lighten their mood.  They’d just heard the judge order Austyn to perform 16 hours’ of community service for punching a classmate.  The sentence could have been worse, but this was just another reminder of their troubles. Brad (37), and his wife, Jaime (36), had recently been released from prison after serving several years for […] Read more »

Clive’s Arrived

Alfie Close Up

Clive’s arrived but in the words of that old song, “Will he stay or will he go now . . .”, can’t remember the rest or the singer – surely not another senior moment? So, who’s Clive and how come he’s moved in, huh?  Well, truth is Son and I had a madly impulsive moment on the way home from the garden centre where I’d been shipped for coffee and cake; apparently I needed to get out of the house.

How’s Your Blind Spot?

Fitzgerald

Thoughts tumbled into my mind as I considered the book I’m writing, ‘Life Changing Seconds . . .’, making me  aware of how a little act of kindness or consideration can touch a heart and forever change a life and we’d never know.  How wonderful, the magnificent and hidden hand of the Universe silently at work. Then I thought about how often our self-absorption and personal insecurities may have blinded us to chances for change, little windows of potential light left behind […] Read more »

Patience,When Will You Be Mine?

frustration ahead

Like me, do you frustrate yourself?  Friday was a case in point.  Why do I think I know better than those who know?  Why am I not patient?  Now, in mitigation, I thought all was well therefore headlong into the throng I threw myself, even though I’d been told my mission wasn’t important.  It was to me.  Okay, okay I admit I’d made my mind up and the lady wasn’t for turning, as someone once said. Following instructions to take […] Read more »
