Most people who get involved with me know that my life is really like a roller coaster. I’ve always liked roller coasters. I’m not completely sure why. The truth is they actually scare the hell out of me. I think it’s because I like the thrill of life. I’m one of those people who says yes immediately and then gets on and screams the whole time. I really do like the feeling. It’s a rare bit of excitement and a great release.
A few months ago one of my kids told me that they felt like life is a roller coaster, too. I was momentarily stunned. I knew exactly what that feeling was like and I know it can be terrifying. It seems like it’s either roller coaster or stuck.
Who’s controlling the speed of this thing?

Above all else, I am a mother. I've been told by my closest friends that I am a fighter, but I actually roll my eyes at that part of my identity because I really don't enjoy fighting. I'm just good at it for the most part. The thing is, I write about whatever is on my mind, which appears to be a big mess sometimes. I mostly think about my kids and the people they are and how to help them become who they want to be in this world. I love them more than anything in this world. Sometimes I write about giftedness, autism, trauma, schools, mental health and chronic illness because those are all things that affect me. In the past I have written about deaf issues because it has been a bit part of my motherhood. I write about my own life and the people in it and I try not to hurt people's feelings in the writing process. I hope what I write touches peoples hearts and opens people’s minds because I think people in our world need to have more understanding and compassion. I tell it like it is. Read on.
