On Tuesday, April 17th, we will be having a Twitter Party for the new Chicken Soup Book -- My Crazy Family. It's at 2 PM EST and lasts for an hour. You can meet the publisher and others inf the book. Just sign in to your Twitter account and look for the magnifying glass at the top right. Put in #CSSMyCrazyFamily and join the fun. It's like a cocktail party for authors. You can ask questions of the authors and publisher and just get to know new people and their stories. My story is "It's All About the Dogs!" and I'm sure all of you can relate to our loveable, crazy family members. Hope you'll join us!

My Crazy Family

On April 10, 2018, my story, "It's All About the Dogs" will appear in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul Book: My Crazy Family. It's a humorous story about my dad's love for dogs. In fact, I attribute my dad's longevity (88 years old) to having a man's best friend. He loves walking with his dog every morning and it's not only good for his heart, but his soul. Those who really don't understand the canine-human connection, might think my dad is overly "zealous"of his four-footed friends, but those of us who know him best (his family and friends) realize he's not crazy; he's just a dog lover.

As an author, it's always fun to walk into a bookstore and see your work, especially when it comes to Chicken Soup for the Soul. I'm a regular contributor to the series and it's always exciting to read one of my stories or have someone tell you that they read your story and it made a difference in their lives. That's all the appreciation that an author ever needs.

Miracles and More

I'm grateful to have a story in the new Chicken Soup book "Miracles and More." My story is titled "CPR 101." It's the only time I ever had to use CPR after all my years in the medical field, but it left a lasting impression on me. The book will be available on and bookstores near you, including Barnes & Noble. 

If you'd like to write for Chicken Soup, I've written an ebook that explains the process and how to write a winning story. My Kindle book is "Secrets to Writing a Winning Chicken Soup Story" on
