Exciting News!

Hello Dearest Friends!

I have exciting news to share and deepest thanks to extend!

Preemie won New Hampshire’s 2013/2014 Reader’s Choice Award for Outstanding Work of NonFiction!

Here’s the photo to prove it!

There were many wonderful books up for the nomination, and it felt like a real long shot, but you, dear readers, did it! Your votes and help spreading the word made this award possible!


WIth ski season over and spring finally in the air, I’m redesigning an entirely new, reenergized website, that I can’t wait to share with all of you!

I hope that where ever you may be, physically, emotionally and spiritually, you’re experiencing the feelings of rebirth, renewal and hope that so often seem to arrive at this time of year.

WIth love, blessings and much gratitude,



A Daily Reminder

With the return of light, I feel my creative energy awakening, and look forward to spending more time over here with you.

This has been my daily message to myself in this new year and one I hope you’ll consider adopting for yourself…


May your days be full of love and light.

With blessings,



Upcoming Events

Hi All!

November is National Prematurity Awareness Month and already shaping up to be a busy and exciting time. I wanted to be sure and tell you about a few exciting upcoming events.

On Thursday, November 14th, I’ll be participating as a panelist on a live Facebook chat sponsored by the National Premature Infant Coalition (NPIHC). The topic of the chat is  Mental Health for Preemie Parents, a topic near and dear to my heart.  The chat should be lively and informative, and I hope you’re able to join in!

I am also incredibly honored to be speaking at a conference sponsored by Fragile Beginnings and The March of Dimes on Sunday, November, 17th, from 11:30 – 2:00 in Waltham, Massachusetts. The conference is free and everyone who attends will receive a complimentary copy of Preemie! If you’re in the New England area, I hope you can make it!

I’ll also be joining two book groups this November to discuss Preemie.  If you’re in a book group and would like to spend a meeting discussing Preemie, I’d love to join you.  Just send me an email at prematurejourney@gmail.com and if it’s within driving distance, I’ll be there!  We can also Skype or FaceTime if distance is an issue.

Finally, I have to share the latest comment someone posted on Preemie’s Amazon Book Page.  It just made me smile to know this book is making a difference.

No words can describe the feeling this book gave me…The honesty and depth of this book will stay with me for a long time. It’s also making me evaluate my life and change for the better. Thank you for sharing and making us moms of preemies feel less alone.”

Did Preemie have a positive impact on you? If so, perhaps you’ll feel moved to leave your own comment on the Amazon book page.  Thanks!

I hope things are going well in your world and wish you much joy and peace.

With blessings,
