About Me

 


I love to read and love blogging!!

Married to Jeff in 1983.  Mom to Kristopher, Katherine, Elizabeth and Jaymeson. Katherine gave birth to my wonderful grandson November 12,2007.  My beautiful granddaughter was born April 24, 2012 . Our family continues to grow as Katy and Ross welcomed Remington Rodger on December 20, 2012.

We have two Border Collie/Blue Heeler mixes who are sisters, Oreo and Nera Belle.

Back in 2001 I was involved in an accident that flipped our full size van and left me upside down in a creek bed. Touch and go for awhile but left the hospital 75 days later in a wheelchair with my right side totally paralyzed and the left side starting to work again. After another year of therapy I could walk short distances with a cane and found out just how much I can do one-handed. I helped out doing bookkeeping at my church part time for a few years but the job was eliminated. Not being able to drive and the short hours I could work left me few options. Then I met some friends online at PaperBackSwap.com, reading groups and disability support groups and in December 2009 a wonderful friend convinced me to start a blog. She helped me with a few publisher connections and Dollycas’s Thoughts was born. In October 2011 I left Blogger behind and started this self-hosted WordPress blog – Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book. I love being your Escape Travel Agent!!

Besides reading I love to watch the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Wisconsin Badgers, Fall River Pirates and Matt Kenseth is my favorite NASCAR driver.

  1. Great looking family.

  2. Just took a look at your site from a post on FB and want you to know how impressed I am! Very nicely done. I’m an indie published author who is learning everything from the ground up. Your series sounds clever and delightful and I wish you hearty congratulations!

  4. Thank you for your kind giveaway of my novels. The funny thing is that i saw “book tours” and thought maybe you arranged tours of the true settings of novels, which are mostly my normal haunts. I have taken people on such tours, and afterward, never heard from them again :-) I guess my haunts can be a little too haunting :- ) best, James Thompson

  5. You are so kind and giving! And, you’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award at http://elizabethrosemysteries.com/awards/?preview=true&preview_id=251&preview_nonce=27b10a2298! You rock, Lori! :)
