A Change Is Coming

Happy New Year everyone.  This year will be a year of big changes for me.  My youngest daughter will be going to college and I will officially be an empty-nester, I will be selling the home I have lived in for 17 years and I will be releasing my first non-fiction book – Start Here: […]

Christmas

The holidays are just about over and you might be thinking about starting your divorce.  Nobody really wants to be doing this but sometimes it just has to be done. To that end on my website I have a handy checklist to get you started.  In the next few weeks I will be releasing my […]

Holiday Happiness
