Today is National Tell a Fairy Tale Day!
I love this beautiful graphic I put together — it’s soft and dreamy like fairy tales should be.
What’s your fave fairytale?
Mine is The Little Mermaid.
In so many fairy tales, the princess has to wait for the prince. Not our mermaid. She goes out and gets her man!! I love that idea–and so true.
You can’t wait around in a tower washing your long hair, or doing housework with one shoe waiting for something to happen.
Get out there and make it happen!!
Here’s a little poem for you I wrote about Mermaids:
Once upon a fairy tale
A gorgeous prince set out to sail
A bad, bad wind his ship did sink
Which put our hottie prince over the brink
Then a princess mermaid came swimming by
And saved him without being shy
But when he awoke on land so dry
He didn’t remember her, oh my
So the princess mermaid risked all to walk
But the spell was so she couldn’t talk
So she had to watch another girl catch his eye
And could say nothing about how he almost died
But she didn’t give up, oh no, not in this tale
For mermaids always get their man without fail.
Fairy tales tell us what’s right and should be
For true love like hers must win…on land or sea

Kisses and Chocolate…
Perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate is always good, but what if your first kiss, and I mean your VIRGIN KISS, on V-Day is just plain awful?
That’s what happened to Riley Murphy, a new student at Holywell High. Here’s how it starts in 7 kissing paragraphs:
To overcome my shyness, my mom convinced me to try out for the Drama Club. Somehow I landed the leading role in a one-act Chekhov play. Yes, Chekhov. I played this mad, beautiful countess with passion and heart. I loved it. I came alive on stage. I could do anything, be anybody, say anything, I could—
—kiss the male lead?
A gangly sophomore named Luke Vanmeer with long greasy hair and an upper lip curled in a perpetual snarl? He was going to anoint my virgin lips with my first big kiss?
Forget the Altoids. I needed a stress pill.
I quit the play. They could find another dupe. Not me. I wasn’t going to let him use my lips for kissing practice.
Then I heard this little voice in my head telling me this was acting, right? Going through the motions at rehearsals and on stage didn’t count on the kissing scale. I could pucker up with him and still be a kissing virgin.
After that, I sailed through rehearsals, knowing my lines, and “connecting to my character,” according to the director, who insisted on method acting. That’s how the trouble started. We didn’t rehearse the kiss. He wanted a real kiss on stage, he said, not some phony smooch.
Find out what happens when Luke tries to embarrass Riley on stage in front of the whole school on Valentine’s Day… VIRGIN KISS is FREE Feb 14th and 15th, Saturday and Sunday!!

It’s National Make a Friend Day!
Books have been my friends since I read my first fairytale.
We moved a lot from state to state when I was a kid due to my dad’s work, so I was kinda slow making friends. I remember a teacher wrote on my report card, “…works well by herself, is shy and reads a lot.”
I was already in my third school.
And I was in the 3rd grade.
Over the years, books are still my friends, but like the little girls in the graphic I put together, it’s more fun to share those books with a friend.
And to everyone out there who stops by to read my stories and posts, I like to think of you as my friends, too. Got a question? Comment? Ask me.
