Dear Flyboy

Dear Flyboy,

What's in the wallet? Does it matter, really, or are you just playing with me? I've been driving toward that scene for what feels like forever and now, wham, you took the wind right out of my sails. What gives?

I don't think you're really that afraid of the dog after all but Spencer, yeah, she scares the crap out of you.

And eventually you need to talk to Wilson and Duncan or I might as well just kill them both off.

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Maybe what is in the wallet is important and maybe not, it depends what it is. I have a lot of stuff in my wallet and yes there are some very important things in there. I could not imagine my wallet without the photo of my 2 boys in there even though it is nearly 15 years old I have not updated it.
As far as being scared of dogs, I am scared or every dog except my own and even that took me a while and only because we have had Sam since he was a puppy otherwise I am afraid of being bitten or chased by any dog of any size as I was when I was a child.
As far as Wilson and Duncan go Flyboy needs them he just doesn't realise it yet. He has to build up his confidence to know that he can talk to them and to know they may actually listen. It took me a long time to trust anyone and now only a select few know my inner most secrets. I often wish I had have been able to tell someone about some things much earlier than I did and then I would not have spent more than half my life in misery and pain. Flyboy will realize that soon and he will need Wilson and Duncan more than ever.
Geez are you sure this book is not about me.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
