How can someone handle the feeling of losing the home you grow up in? How will you feel if you lose the home where many of your most cherished memories took place?
When you lose your home, it feels like you are losing someone you love. In a way, you also go through the five stages of grief: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

Is the story of Noah’s Flood simply a rewritten version of a story found in the Epic of Gilgamesh? Some people actually believe that the biblical story of Noah’s Flood was not historical at all, and was borrowed from flood legends in Mesopotamia, especially the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Dating from the Third Dynasty of Ur (circa 2100 BC), the Epic of Gilgamesh is often regarded as the first great work of literature. It is contained on 12 large tablets. Perhaps the most interesting story in…Continue

I’m stepping up a gear this year. Last week I put my latest book, A Dangerous Game, on pre-order with Amazon, something I’ve never done before. The launch date is January 29th. Looking at the way some other writers approach this point, I know I haven’t put as much in to the launch as they have. One writer on one of the forums I follow has been incredibly busy and looks like he’s achieving pretty good results. Some of you may ask…Continue

I have come a long way from the shy little girl I was back then to the confident woman I am today. However, getting over the trauma of an unsettled childhood was not easy. Surviving the hardships I faced before took a lot out of me as a child.
One thing that I learned early on during my childhood was that things change and will always change. You just can’t resist change. You have to accept it and move on the best that you can. You have to learn to adapt. I have survived upheaval and…Continue

Did Moses borrow the 10 commandments from the Egyptian book of the dead?
It sure looks that way. Apparently, the 10 commandments are based on statements made in chapter 125 of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The existence of the Egyptian Book of the Dead was known as early as the Middle Ages, however, it was translated much later in the 19th century by a number of Egyptologists and linguists.

It’s easy for a teacher to become overwhelmed by grading, and when it comes to grading students’ writing pieces, the ask can become even more onerous. As most teachers know, specific timely feedback in student writing is a highly effective way to improve a student’s writing skills. However, with so many subjects to plan for and teach (at the elementary level), and so many students’ writing pieces to grade (at the middle school level), how can a teacher “do it all”?
Luckily, there are…Continue
