Dear Strunk and White,

I am a humble Tigger. A small and sad Tigger.

I used to be rather snooty over grammar. As an Oxford comma aficionado, i  considered myself a bit of a grammar nerd. I'd roll my eyes over Facebook posts where my friends would confuse commas and periods. Where loose and lose were confused. Where periods were avoided as though they were a zombie virus.

As I transition from hobby writer to professional writer, I become more and more convinced I will never understand all of grammar's rules. I've become humbled. Sad and small.

I will never know it all.

I am doing my best Professor Strunk.

A struggling writer, human, and former bouncy Tigger.

Dinner and a book

My newest release, Honeysuckle and Roses, has a Vietnamese main character. As part of my research, I discovered the lovely food of South East Asia. How did I live this long and miss out on the culinary delights of Pho and Pad Thai?

I found a local restaurant and have been a regular customer ever since.

When I finished my writing goals two weeks ago, I took myself out for a celebratory dinner and enjoyed the rich flavors. I'm hooked.

David's story and a steaming plateful of Pad Thai is a perfect combination. (unless you're allergic to peanuts.)

Trust me.
