Books are food for my soul! Pull up a beach chair and stick your toes in the sand as the Jersey surf rolls in and out, now open your book and let your imagination take you away.

What I Have Been Up To Since August ...

In January 2017 my Dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 Duodenal (Small Intestine) Cancer. We had hoped that his journey might be longer and that we would have time to check off some of his bucket list items, but unfortunately Dad passed away on Thursday, August 17th after a valiant fight. To make things worse, the week that he passed away I fractured my left wrist and had to have same day surgery. As an only child, I was devastated when he passed, especially since Mom had passed away 10 years ago in March 2007. My world has been turned upside down, and I didn't have the desire to read and review books, so I took time to heal and settle Dad's estate (Thank you Dad, I am so blessed and thankful for the inheritance you left me). Now that my wrist is finally healing and I have begun PT (hand therapy) 3x a week, it's time to get back to my passion for reading and reviewing books. <3

In Memory of My Dad, Thomas Higgins

Dad was so proud to be a member of the USMC.
God Speed Dad, Semper Fi and Oorah, Marine!

    1. Thank you Cheryl for the kind comment. I really appreciate how you and the PBP/PICT ladies have given me time to heal. :)
