My Year Is Off To A Bang!

I started the New Year with a publishing goal of mine.midlife-mothering-200x300coming to fruition thanks to Cyma Shapiro’s wonderful anthology THE ZEN OF MIDLIFE MOTHERING where my essay Infertile, me? No Way–I’m Latina is proudly included among dozens of witty, candid, and finely crafted writing. 

Soon after, I received news that my October 2013 submission landed me a coveted spot on IN THE CELEBRATION OF THE MUSE where I’ll read Lioness in a Size Eight-Pantsuit  at Cabrillo College on March 8th. Please join us for a fun evening with a talented group of Santa Cruz County women.

SMASHED WRISTThen in mid-January while on a glorious bike ride, I was slammed off of my bike and ended up in the ER where seven hours later I left with a heavy-duty, double splint to keep my banged up   wrist and arm in place until surgery a week later.

Now, I belong to The Twisted Sister Club, my younger sister megaphones everyone as she shows off the centipede scar down her right arm. My scar is smaller thank goodness and my right arm is on the mend. The months ahead are filled with doctor visits, physical therapy, writing, and redesigning my website!
