I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. I am a records keeper at the local police station. I am a reader. I am a self-taught, beginning knitter. I am a "struggling" author. I love depression glass, antique linens, old crystal, vintage cut glassware and angels. I love frozen custard and anything lemon. I love peonies and roses, babies' laughter and birds singing. I love knitting and reading and watching my grandson do anything. I love listening to rain falling on the roof while lying in bed in the early morning. I enjoy watching a lightning storm brewing, knowing it's headed in my direction. The smell of fresh-cut grass, sun tea, a good book and a comfy chair bring me much pleasure. I love long rides in the hillsides and the valleys searching for old country churches. I love seeing the cows lying in the pastures and the barns that house them. I love the plentiful deer here in Ohio and the bears in Tennessee. I love the mountains, I love the ocean. But most of all I love my family: my brothers, my sisters, my husband Steve, my son Josh Murphy, my stepdaughter Tori Farmer, my mother-in-law Janice Farmer and finally, my grandson Tristan Murphy.
Four sisters and a brother decided to write this book about everything from infancy to adolescence to menopause and beyond, talking about everything from pimples, Spanx, hair dyes, adulting, and yes, even hot flashes. If they have experienced it, lived through it, or wanted to die because of it, they'll share it with you.
Since that book was so much fun and a great success, they decided to write another book in the Another Round of Laughter series, calling it Kids are Not Always Angels.
They hope you enjoy the tattered tales of the devil angels who grace their lives, and remember that kids are not defined by age, but by their actions. These stories are written about kids of all ages.
While on a Caribbean Cruise and after numerous bottles of Moscato wine and several trips to the all-you-can-eat dessert bar, four sisters decided to write a book about their love affair with food and their experiences with diet disasters. With a combined 224 years of experience between the sisters, they consider themselves experts at diet failures.
