No Drama

2015/01/img_0082.jpg

The time to lose the drama, came for me a long time ago. Recently however, I found myself being drawn into FB group dramas and I saw and heard the proverbial red light go off in my head.

It wasn’t that I hadn’t enjoyed my time in these groups. It wasn’t that I hadn’t met some very fine people and even a few I can call friends.

The problem was, that as with most friend oriented groups, issues arose between members that could have pushed one to take a position for one or the other involved.

Rather than take a position, I chose to leave and it was not the first time I have done this. I had been in a group before where the arguing got so petty as to become juvenile.

I have worked very hard both physically and emotionally to make my life as stress free as possible. As a Cancer survivor, stress had no place in my daily life.

I have regretfully had to move certain family members out of my life as well. It is always a sad and heart wrenching decision to exclude those you care about, family and friends, including those on FB.

Sometimes, you have to do what is best for you.

For me, this is a drama free life.

I’ll put the drama in my books instead.

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and on Kindle Unlimited; also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I am 59 and married with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Doestoyefsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
