BTSMAG/Cross Posted – It’s All About The Connections
Married Jeff in 1983. Mom to Kristopher, Katherine, Elizabeth, and Jaymeson. Katherine gave birth to my wonderful grandson, Kaden on November 12, 2007. My beautiful granddaughter, Natalie was born on April 24, 2012, to Kris and Amber. Our family continues to grow as Katy and Ross welcomed Remington Rodger on December 20, 2012. On March 15, 2015, I lost my oldest son Kristopher Scot to suicide. I will do everything I can so that no other family has to feel this heart-wrenching grief. On August 26, 2019, Charlotte Marie was born to Jaymeson and Alaura. Alaura’s son, Thomas Joseph also joined our family.
We had two Border Collie/Blue Heeler mixes who were sisters, Oreo, and Nera Belle. Oreo left us on September 27, 2020, and Nerabelle left us on October 12, 2020, after bringing joy to our lives for over 17 years.
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 a while 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 Into a Good Book Travel Agent!! In 2013 Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours was born and I have organized over 1200 virtual book tours.
On March 13, 2020, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have had chemo, surgery, and radiation and am now on medications because I am at high risk for reoccurrence.
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.
From the Acknowledgment Page of Ginger Snapped by Gail Oust – “My thanks wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging the bloggers—Lori Caswell, Dru Ann Love, and Lisa K, only to name a few—who work tirelessly to promote the cozy genre.”
