#ThrowbackThursday Levittown Drum & Bugle Corps

Moving to the suburbs was an experience and although there were some tough moments, there were that many more good memories of growing up in Levittown. One of them was discovering the Levittown Drum and Bugle Corps which met just a couple of blocks away at the local church. It was one of first experiments with playing music, but from there, my sister and I both went on to other instruments. My sister was an amazing violin and viola player while I took up the bassoon. Being involved in music groups provided us both with amazing opportunities.

This photo is of us with our parents as we proudly display the bugles we were learning to play!

#Throwback Thursday My First Book Signing

Today’s throwback is to my very first book signing. It happened in the Menlo Park Mall in Edison at the Barnes & Noble there. So exciting. They had me at a nice table toward the front of the store and gave me some flowers. My hubby and daughter brought me more flowers. This shot is of me with my daughter! How time flies.

#ThrowbackThursday Lucky 7 Bad Boys

Good morning! Hard to believe it’s Thursday already and time for a throwback! This one is not that far a throw since it’s from the 2014 RT Conference in New Orleans. Check out some of the Lucky 7 Bad Boys authors enjoying breakfast at the awesome Cafe du Monde. It was such a treat for us to get together to celebrate making the NY Times and USA Today lists with our Lucky 7 Bad Boys box set. Guess what? We’re doing another set for you in March of 2015! I won’t spill the beans about the theme just yet, but I promise you will enjoy the seven stories in the set.

#ThrowBackThursday & a Debut Author

We’re going back in time today on this Throwback Thursday and I’m wondering, “Did I really think those huge ass glasses made me look good?”

Of course, it’s hard for me not to smile as I remember this moment with my best friend, my daughter, aka the debut author of FOLLOWING JANE.

I am so proud of her for writing a book and for all that she has accomplished! You rock, Samantha.

What about you? Did you have glasses like this? Or how about those man shoulder pads that were so popular in the ’80s? I’m sure we could have lent them to an NFL player for a little extra protection! LOL!
