Let’s start with the LOVE…
I love my husband. Yes, I know that’s cliché. And also, I really think my hubby is cute in a “Guido-Geeky” way.
My husband is not perfect. I based a lot of Tabbruis, my hero in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES, after my husband. In my books, Tabbruis is not comfortable in social situations, and neither is my 150+ I.Q. MENSA husband.
However, Tabbruis loves Charmeine and his family so much, he would do anything to make them happy and protected. To be even more of a believable hero, at times Tabbruis lacks the art of finesse with his wife. He makes mistakes. What one of us can say that we don’t? We all go ‘off the reservation’ once in while.
Dealing with PREJUDICE…
Ever since I was a toddler, I was taught no one is better than me, and I am no better than anyone else.
I have dealt with prejudice on many levels… feeling it, seeing it, and fighting against it.
I had hopes that once I got my MBA, which I worked very hard for, I would get a better job… NOT! I found out the GLASS CEILING above my head has be to broken before I can even get a chance to put my MBA to use. It appears some corporate mentalities don’t want to give educated women a chance. That’s not guff, it’s the ‘Unspoken Prejudice’ of the corporate world. I am struggling to have one corporate executive see my potential and prove myself worthy in the Fortune 500 world.
A lot of REGRETS…
I have so many regrets that the light from the ‘Planet Regrets’ can’t reach me.
Who of us don’t?
However, here’s where my hope and love will pull me through. If I pay Student Loans until I am 100 years old, and they give me a bill while I am going to the mortuary, I can’t regret my MBA Education. I am the first in my family to have a Graduate Degree, and that means something. I guess I will be buried with my degree in my casket tucked under my satin pillow.
Now onto dreaded BIRTHDAYS…
Argh! Birthdays suck. It’s mine March 2nd, and I am not at all happy about it…
I don’t feel my age
I don’t relate to my age
I can’t even tell you how I hate being labeled with the damaging prejudice of AGEISM. Especially now that I am trying to break the corporate GLASS CEILING mentality. Birthdays are the minefield of the struggling people of the corporate world.
THANKS and generosity of love…
I am so very thankful for my family, the Esparzas and Guidos. My mother and family taught me wonderful lessons in hospitality, hard work, and ethics, and I am ever thankful.
I am thankful to my PDMI Publishing family including TC and Nessa and all talented people there for taking such a chance on me and THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES.
I poured my heart out in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES… the Tabbruis and Charmeine Hunter family made of Vampires and Angels fighting evil is now a part of my family. I am jubilant that I get to share my heart with the world – literally. I have fans all over the globe now because PDMI took a chance on me.
Last but never forgotten, I am thankful of YOU - My WordPress Blogging Family…
I love you Jueseppi, Mendy, Kristina, Carly, Wendy, Jolene, David, Paula, Marilyn, Al, Val, Ch’Kara, Mari, Kim, Ella, Seamus, Juliette, Anthony, Laura, Sherry, Kimberly, Rebecca, Jennifer, Daven – AND all of you generous individuals I regularly am addicted to reading your blogs every day.
Lots of love,

D is for DESERT
In THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES, Tabbruis awoke in the desert outside of Mt. Sinai. I picked this desolate place because so much history happened there. Again, I have my K-12 Catholic Education kicking in here. He was helped by a boy named Joseph… if you get it, you have had a little biblical instruction yourself! Tabbruis was utterly alone and did not remember Heaven, Charmeine or anything. Can you imagine waking in a place and knowing nothing of your past or who you are?
E is for EXCESSIVE
Okay Tabbruis and all the Blood-Hunters in the series are rich beyond belief. Charmeine is not one who like excess. Does that seem weird? In today’s world, it does. Charmeine doesn’t mind the simple life. Her priceless things are the ocean and roses. She is not one to indulge. However, Tabbruis wants to spoil her. He wants to show her every wonder the world has to offer. I would call Charmeine “Low Maintenance,” courtesy of her humble upbringing. In Tabbruis’ defense, wouldn’t you want to give the love of your life every happiness you could?
F is for FORMIDABLE
The forces against Charmeine and Tabbruis, and the rest of the gang at the Castle are deadly. I can’t explain how ugly and monstrous these creatures are. They have no sense of fair play. The Elder Council is beyond corrupt, they have Humans, Light-Bearers, and even their kin, the Blood-Hunters in a grasp of terror. It is Charmeine and Tabbruis’ task to rid the Earth of them. But how? How do you bring down a power-player who holds all the cards?
I hope you enjoyed this dalliance! I know that I did. I love to tell you about my passion.
Lots of love,
Love this song, kind of reminds me of the romances in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES!
