I know there has been a pause in posts, but I’ve been slammed with other work and quite frankly, I was saving this particular introduction for a particularly special day.
Today is that day.
If you’ve been following my other blog, or my Facebook page, then Diva really needs no introduction. But since I’m doing this for my new fans and followers, allow me to introduce her. Diva is my daughter. Her actual name is Taylor, but I’ve called her Diva since she was 13. Before that she was Diva-in-Training or DIT.
And today is the Diva’s birthday.
She has been the light of my life since she entered it 20-something years ago. She pretty, she’s smart, she’s wickedly savvy, and she has inherited the family wit. My exchanges with her are some of my favorite parts of the book. She is the perfect blend of brilliance and space cadet-ness.
The quote card above was from a conversation that occurred the day before Thanksgiving, I think in 2012. Maybe it was 2011. As you can figure out, she wrecked the car. It wasn’t her first accident.
It also wasn’t her last. But we’ll just let that go since neither accident was her fault. And I would be terribly remiss if I didn’t mention she is an awesome mother. Other than my adoration for her, I don’t think I’ve seen a mother adore a child as much as she does my granddaughter. It is a wonderful thing to witness.
And that is pretty much the cast from Words from the ‘Rents.
So, as promised, my next post will detail what writing this book was like.
