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,

A is for ANGEL
Okay – How did I come up with those names…
Tabbruis, Charmeine, and Nemamiah?
That’s my K-12 Catholic Education at work. I always loved these Angels and they are in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES as I was taught. Tabbruis is the Angel of Self-Determination, Charmeine is the Angel of Harmony, and Nemamiah is the Angel of Just Causes and Discernment. So parents, watch what you teach your kids, it may come up in their writing!
B is for BEAUTY
All of the characters in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES are beautiful and gorgeous. However, Charmeine is never convinced that she is beautiful. She thinks every wonder in the universe is more interesting and beautiful than her – the ocean, sunset, stars, and of course roses.
C is for CONTENTMENT
When Charmeine and Tabbruis first meet each other, they are content for the first time in their lives. Their draw, their appeal to each other is like a magnet. With each other, they feel whole. To be completely honest with you, I wrote Tabbruis and Charmeine’s relationship the way I feel around my hubby when we are relaxing and enjoying a cup of coffee on the couch snuggling… I feel whole.
That’s it for now! I wanted to give you a taste of these series of posts are about.
I will try to entertain and hopefully, you will get a better insight into my writing and myself. I am humbled that I have a chance to put my love out there. THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES is my labor of love.
Lots of love,
Okay I love this song! I know Tabbruis thinks of Charmeine this way!
