I must say…this thankful week the Dolls are putting on is great, but I wasn’t excited about writing for it, even though I love the Dolls. As you guys know my year hasn’t been that great so to be thankful about anything wasn’t huge on my list. However I decided to step past the thoughts of missing my father, Daddy, during the holidays and write.



There are two things I’m thankful for, first  the Paperback Dolls and second, Kim Harrison and her Hollows Series. I’ll start with the Dolls, my friends, who have supported me for years now. When the Dolls created PBD they invited me to share my journey as a writer with you, their followers. They’ve allowed me to write about the highs and lows of being a writer and trying to get published. My articles have strengthened my writing and it’s all thanks to the Dolls. Over the year as my writing has grown, the Dolls have let me grow within my articles as well. As you know they’re still on writing, but it’s not all about queries, rejections and submissions, I’ve added more in hopes that it helps my writing and journey along with others who are in this journey with me. They’ve also given me the opportunity to branch out into writing book reviews. I’m very thankful the Dolls have helped me grow in my writing.

As for the second thing I’m thankful for, that would be Kim Harrison and her Hollows series. Why, you ask…well I’m thankful for Kim, because she inspirers me to write. She makes me feel as a writer that I’m not alone, and I think that’s important in this field. Then there’s her Hollows series, that reminds me of home, or I guess l should say of my Daddy. If you haven’t read the Hollows it takes place in Cincinnati, were I was born and where most of my family still lives. Reading the Hollows enables me to be in Cinny, no matter where I am in the world (thanks to my Flyboy hubby). For me, it’s a way to remember my time with my Daddy in a good way, just like traveling the streets of Cinny for his job when I was a kid. Daddy sold gym equipment to the different schools in the Tri-cities, and I’d go with him whenever I’d visit. Reading about Rachel as she drives around the city instantly takes me right back to that time in my life. Those memories are precious to me and because of their value I’m so thankful that I have this series (thanks to Kim Harrison) and that I’ll always be able to read them whenever I want to “ride” with my Daddy again.

We are proof positive that one common love can unite the most opposite of people and form lasting friendships that introduce other ways of life and perspectives to each other.
