What is Your Dream Car?


Today on my Facebook page I asked, What is your dream car? Do you own it? Mine is any early 70’s Stingray Corvette. I find them to be super sexy. I will one day own one, and have Prince’s song, Little Red Corvette playing on repeat.

What is your dream car? Do you own it?


Life Gift Registry


Whether you’re getting married, moving into a new place or about to have your first baby, you go to your favorite store and what do you do? You register, that’s what. You go through the store adding things on a list that you would love to have. It takes the guess-work out of what people should buy for you to mark the special occasion. Some love these gift registries and some dislike them. But there’s no denying the popularity of said service.

After you’ve selected everything your heart desires, people are more than happy (We’d like to think ūüôā ) to run out and purchase these things for you. Those near and dear to you hurry to grab those big-ticket items as if it’s some indication of their awesomeness. The satisfaction they derive from sitting at your bridal shower or house-warming party when you’re opening the gifts–hey, it’s just what you wanted!

Now imagine if you could do that for life, in general. No special occasion, just being able to put what you most desire on a list and people clamoring at the chance to oblige. How awesome would that be? I’m not suggesting here that others are responsible for providing you with things you should be attaining for yourself.¬†¬†This is just a whimsical little post so don’t shoot me down.

One of the things I’d put on ¬†my list would be, endless opportunities to travel. It’s probably my favorite thing to do.¬†What would you put on your Life Gift Registry?

Dreams That You Dare to Dream Really Do Come True


With my first novel, Enchanted Island, I dedicated it to my children. I simply said ” Dream Big.” ¬†Up until I completed and published Enchanted Island I had not lived up to that statement. ¬†I suppose you can say I was brought up to just do the minimum to get by in life. I was encouraged to get a city job with good benefits and sit at a desk for the rest of my life. While that is fine and dandy for most people, it just wasn’t for me. ¬†There really isn’t anything wrong with finding a job, getting married and having 2.3 kids and ¬†a dog. ¬†It’s your everyday American Dream.

From a young age I knew that that kind of life was not for me. I’m more inclined to do something that has me¬†running around and on my feet all day. I’ve worked at desk jobs and was terribly miserable. I’m more of a hands on person. I like to be up and about helping people or doing something with my hands. ( Hey behave yourselves ūüėČ ) ¬†Unfortunately I was wired to want to do so many different things at once, and that doesn’t really fit into being productive in our society. ¬†You know the saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” I believe that the saying has negative connotations. I could be wrong there, who knows?

I just like to do so many different things that I can’t settle on just one. ¬†Our society is just not set up to support this type of personality. ¬†You go through your school years and when you get to High School and College you have to declare majors. You’re expected to pick that one subject, study it and then find a career to support yourself in that field. Again, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s just that some people (me) don’t fit in that particular box.

First of all, if you study so many different subjects you’re going to go broke doing so. ¬†Secondly, if you’re lucky enough to afford schooling for every subject matter you’re interested in, try changing jobs in all of the fields that strike your fancy. No one will want to hire you because you’ve bounced around so much. I know employers want to know that they are hiring a person who will stick with them, I’m just saying! Just because a person has many different interests and would love to pursue most or all of them doesn’t necessarily mean the person is flighty or a flake.

So someone like me is forced to go into business for themselves. I took what I was passionate about, kids, and I made it work for me. So now I have a day care in my home. I find myself now wishing to follow other dreams. ¬†I’m left feeling like, maybe there’s something wrong with me. I look around and people have chosen careers and work at it until retirement. Why am I not happy doing that? Why do I bore of something and want to move onto something else. Society tells me that there may just be something wrong with me. I never really did feel like I fit in. ¬†Am I one of those “creative types?” You know, the type person people make fun of.

All I know, is that the older I get, the more important it is for me to live out my dreams. ¬†I always loved writing so, with my friend R.C. Berry, we wrote books and published them. That was a huge thing for me. Now I’m onto fulfilling something just for the fun of it. ¬†I’ve taken on trying to meet my favorite male entertainer! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! I think I love him…like…seriously ūüėÄ ¬†You can follow along on my journey to make that dream a reality here on my¬†Journey to Wrestlemania¬†blog. Find out what I’m up to these days with my gal pals R.C. Berry and Ms Ang. ¬†I’m learning to live my life, with the knowledge that, ¬†the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.


Following a Dream


The last few days have been so exciting. I finally told my kids about my book Enchanted Island. As expected, my daughter was a little more excited. My son was interested and asked questions about it, but to get him to read it, is going to take some work :D… If it’s not about sports or video games, he’s going to have a tough time getting interested. But he WILL read it eventually ūüėÄ

This past weekend, there was a Presale for Enchanted Island held. This event was my coming out, so to speak. I’ve now gone public to my friends. I must say, they have been impressed with what I was able to accomplish. One of my old high School friends went as far as to call me her hero. She said I inspired her to continue with her dream. She had kept her dream from those close to her, just as I did. I wish her all the luck in the world and I will most definitely support her.

My fellow writer friend and I, are so completely beside ourselves. The website is getting a lot of traffic these days, and there were already orders placed during the Presale.  R.C. Berry is the author of Set in Stone: The Life and Death of Medusa and a wonderful friend of mine. To find out more about us and our debut novels visit: http://www.touchepublishers.com
