Rape, a word and despicable act every woman should stand against. There is no excuse for it. None. So, how can some women betray others by laughing about it, finding "excuses" for the rapists, and even blame the victims. If the victim was their sister, mot

What a day it's been. What a week, a month, it never stops. Today I did something I never expected to do. I've been strutting my stuff. Ahem. I won't say much more. If you follow a certain S.E. Lauran on Facebook, you'll know more than enough. Thanks dear!

Sometimes you try to help people and they don't like it. They might have asked you for your advice, but it's not what they wanted to hear, so they cut you off, just like that. Sounds familiar? Never mind that I've spent hours on their project and then some

As many of you know my oldest sister is near death. She has bowel and colon cancer and was taken off her nutrients a little over fifty days ago. The nutrients were feeding her cancer and not her. Since then she has had nothing but fluids through a tube, sh

This month of sisterhood has taken me through the depth and breadth of what women can be to each other and what they should not be. Next weekend I will be flying up to say goodbye to my sister, who is dying of cancer. The doctors have given her maybe a few

Attitudes towards breastfeeding vary widely depending where you live and who your friends are. I was not breastfed. I didn't know anyone who did breastfeed. I had no role model, apart from knowing I did not want to inflict the same childhood I had on my ch

Well sometimes. Many of us will go through despair such we truly believe we will never recover. That one trauma, heartache, loss too much. The last drop that will sink your ship. Then a rainbow lights up our lives and wakes us up. In my case, a French conn

At the beginning of this month of laughter and letting our inner fool out. I went to Judy Kinney’s Spa for the Soul. It was a wonderful experience and in many ways I learned much. One of the most important things I learned was the ability to find joy and b

  What is it with people? You know the ones who have to criticise, judge? What does it matter? Man, or woman, why should it make a difference? Why should male writers be better than female writers? Oh yes, have you heard that one? http://elleamberley.word

Why the divide? Why not live together and accept our differences? And our similarities! Yes, they do exist. I have many male friends who are way more sensitive than women I know. And then, there is my husband. Sensitive, caring... He doesn't care about sta

What do you do when you're burnt out and not all that well? After a very busy year writing and churning out a few more books I needed a break. Yes, we do travel a lot, but this was just for sheer enjoyment and peace. Unexpectedly I found myself in one of

Wishing all my friends a happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all have a great time. I'm grateful for being on the verge, grateful for all those little and not so little acts of kindness. I'm grateful for being alive and for being where I am today, for my gorgeous

When I had my first baby I'd never heard of attached parenting. I had no role model either.   I just did what felt right. For instance I knew I wanted to breastfeed as soon as I got pregnant. It felt natural, yet, I didn't know anybody who had. The few ba

I'm sure I won't be the only one to have experienced this. You think you've got your life sorted, you've got where you wanted to be and suddenly, you get your one-way ticket to hell. I'm not one who gives up easily, I wouldn't be here today if I did. I cou

Do we really have one purpose in life? I believe we have many. Some people know what they want to be from an early age, others don't. Sometimes you can find what you're good at very late in life. That's OK, that's life. It doesn't matter as long as we fina

  I hope all of you had a great day yesterday.  It wasn't Mother Day for us here, we celebrate mothers on another day. I read this post yesterday: http://animatedwriting.blogspot.com/2011/05/what-kind-of-mother.html The author of this post questions what

Often I read the news and feel angry, or sick. How could you not be after reading this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/14/ireland-abortion-law-woman-death I abhor the idea of abortion, or termination in this case. But I'm not foolish enough not t

Some people will make fun of you for being kind. They will prey on your vulnerabilty and/or exploit you. "You're too twee, too gullible..." they will say. That's too bad, they're the ones who have a problem. I used to worry about expressing myself, I didn'

They say you can judge a person by the way they treat animals... I would agree with that. I'm reminded how much I wanted a pet when I was a child. My mother had a no fur, no feather policy. My father had a dog before he met her, being non-grata in our hous
